Shani Kay

Executive Producer and Managing Director

I am a passionate advocate of the new paradigm of responsible, sustainable, purposeful business.


Shani is an experienced Communications and Stakeholder Engagement Specialist working with global clients to design, produce and amplify content and tools that are relevant, compelling and inspiring.

Born in Pretoria, she completed her Bachelor of Business Science (Hon) at UCT, and in 2015 her MBA in Executive Management at the UCT GSB. Shani's passion is helping to unlock the value of purposeful business; working with the international business community to articulate this purpose through communications strategy and the creation of believable, authentic stories.

Shani firmly believes that the business community has a significant opportunity to contribute to the global transformation agenda with new and innovative solutions; and in doing so, to construct what will become the business of the future. Through systems thinking, creative conversations, strategy development and communications execution, she helps her clients to realize the synergized value that is created in this space of storytelling.
