What is a “maven“? The word maven is Hebrew, meaning “one who understands”, based on an accumulation of knowledge and who seeks to pass knowledge on to others.
Maven Connection is a PR focused company specializing in communication – especially from a media management point of view – meaning that I can help you finding the right person or platform to use in getting your message out there. I have a knack for proof reading and fishing out the angles and pics that will make your story news worthy.
Having spent many years in tourism and events – I am fortunate to have built up an extensive network of connections of people that are awesome at what they are doing and that has bought into my vision of finding a fit for any event no matter how big or small. I have organized and managed press launches, opening of companies (including filling stations in the bundu’s), stakeholder announcements, book launches, plant / site unveilings, promotional tours and even a 120 meter one table charity event in the middle of the historical Victoria Park situated in South End, Port Elizabeth. I am a behind the scenes person that believes in getting my hands dirty – not shying away from long hours and hard work even if it means clearing plates or sweeping floors – because it is all about you!
Maven Connection would like to help you share your message – by bringing all the dots together in an out of the box event that won’t cost you an arm or a leg, connecting with the right people to make it happen or by finding the right communication platform to get your story or message out there.

Goethe’s tale of Dr Faust and the “devil” Mephistopheles is one which is often misinterpreted thereby altering the meaning of the tale. In the tale, Dr Faust enters into an agreement with the devil: his soul in return for wealth and popularity. Mephistopheles is usually falsely recognised as the devil in the narrative, when he is, in fact, a minion of the devil and the collector of souls. The pain of the servitude which plagues Mephisto is so great that he tries to warn Dr Faust of the dangers of entering into a pact with the devil in an attempt to rescue Faust from experiencing a prison of his own creation as Mephisto does.
