NaMedia on the move

05 November 2018 | Business

Local media monitoring and strategic communications company, NaMedia, walked away with the runner-up award in the category for Best Company at the recent Namibia Standards Institution Quality Awards held in the capital.

MD Natasja Beyleveld attributes this accolade to her colleagues and their network of clients, agencies, heroes of industry, friends, and entrepreneurs who have influenced the NaMedia business model, goals, and achievements.

Recently appointed Gift Siukuta (Manager: Business Operations) said that the company recently underwent a couple of management changes to align with growth goals for 2019. He takes on the responsibility for all incoming research projects at NaMedia and is in direct liaison with Beyleveld.

Siukuta, currently completing his Honours Degree in Marketing Management, is a people-person and a problem solver. “I listen and I look for congruence between people and solutions. Growing up in my village in the Zambezi region, my best memories are built on relationships and values of trust, honesty, and family. I resonate with NaMedia's growth objectives, and the people-centric approach of putting our employees, clients, community, and service networks first.”

Data digitalisation

Timo Lippert (Manager: Technical Operations) oversees the ongoing process of data digitalisation, business continuity and technological development, data validity, and a 360-training approach to NaMedia's interns Teopolina Magano, Wilson Ziunye and Zynab Hainyanyula.

“I am ready for a season of change at NaMedia that aligns with an era of digital transformation not only in Namibia, but in Africa at large. I'm entering my fifth year at NaMedia, and dressing myself with lessons learned from peers, leadership, experts in industry, clients, consultants, and following best practises across the globe. I believe that our actions should outlive today's vision, and that we should inspire each other whilst running a business environment that thrives in consistent change and disruption.”

Beyleveld said that it has been a tough year for businesses all around. “Many businesses had to either downscale or close shop. Now more than ever, there is a need to harvest a platform for creative collaboration across businesses; working to find the right balance between talent and cost, between output and sustainability management – and this will be the water to survive, and the food to thrive.

“We're going back to what works to learn, adapt, change, repeat. It's 'making business life simpler' and making the talent and input (human capital in marriage with technology) smarter.”
