feedback on our

Colin Smith, Marketing Executive | Astral Foods

“Their approach is methodical, and it gave us good structure. It wasn’t over complicated either.  It wasn’t over-the-top and was very clear to everyone, no matter what level you were at (middle management, regional managers etc.) you knew what your role was.”

“Lighthouse engage the business at all levels. They really got under our skin at the business and got involved. I really enjoyed that.”

Phil Roberts, Country Lead | Project Last Mile

“The team at Lighthouse was able to conduct in depth due diligence exercises and present the information in a simple , but very effective presentation, that satisfied all stakeholders, and made it really easy to communicate progress and challenges. The team really worked well with us and understood what was required, delivering on time and on budget. They are our “go to” team for strategy and market intelligence.”

Jacqui Carnelley, General Manager | Sodastream

A massive thank you to the whole Lighthouse team for the exceptional work produced for our RTM project. It has been such a pleasure working with you all and I mean it when I say this has been the best investment I could have made for Sodastream

Wayne McCauley, Chief Operating Officer | Blue Label Telecoms

“They help build a business model, do analysis, devise strategies and implement. From A to Z, from analysis to implementation. They make the complex things simple, with a strong bias for action. Their strongest differentiator is their involvement in the implementation and practical application of whatever the strategy is.”

Bonface (Bonnie) Fundafunda, Eastern & Southern Africa Regional Lead | Africa Resource Centre

“Lighthouse has been a great to team to work with over the last few multiple projects in 2020. Their capabilities shown by experience and skill in the work assigned, helped ARC navigate and manage the task of delivering on the projects in different countries, and at the same time collect, process and develop the lessons learnt for future use. The technical assistance provided by LSL has been professional and invaluable given the dynamic and demanding operating environment to which they applied their expertise. The results have been that ARC has delivered on the ask from both our clients (governments) and the donors who underpin the work of ARC. The result has been above expectations, and I look forward to working with LSL.”

Louis Opperman, Chief Commercial Officer | Twizza

“I find that some of the most challenging decisions when it comes to Strategy, is deciding what not to do. In LSL we found a strategic partner who was not only able to grasp the big picture, but also understood what it would take at the rockface to execute. As a result we co-created multiple successful RTM strategies for different territories, all of which are now delivering double digit growth.”
