What our clients have to say

On very few occasions it happens that a client of yours do not only require tasks and action from you, but insight and vision as well. This, in my view, is who Christine is. She has challenged me on levels I never expected, but are grateful for. She influences people positively to be the best they can be. Her calm approach to problems is by far one of her key outstanding characteristics. It might seem everything is falling apart around you, but Christine will pick up the pieces, direct and motivate you to success. Her obvious intelligence and street smarts have on various occasions benefited both her employer, but more so those she directs in achieving objectives that sometimes seem impossible to others to achieve. With Christine on your side, be prepared for hard work, but also life lessons you can use in both your personal life and professional career.

I have worked with Christine on the Abashintshi project Inspired by Sappi. We travelled to rural KZN and facilitated Asset Based Community Development and Enterprise Development to a group of young people. Christine opened eyes with her capacity for respectful, open and lively discussions on topics that were seen as cultural taboos. She leads the team with a great passion for change but a deep understanding of their social and physical environments. She invested in her students more than was expected and through this changed lives. She also has a unique ability to help the boardroom understand the community environment, something so crucial when they make decisions that affect community lives. I have the utmost respect for her and would recommend her to any organisation.

External Communications Lead at Sappi Southern Africa

Having worked with Christine on the Business Repositioning Project for Aurecon Africa, I can say that she is a master of her craft. Christine is one of those individuals who really thrives on complicated challenges. Christine is energised by complexity and having to think on her feet. Business repositioning is no easy task, as a team member on the project I have much admiration and respect for Christine’s ability to demonstrate flexibility and her ability to reconfigure the complex into the simple. In addition, Christine awareness and expertise in change management always brought us back to the impact on our people. Christine provided valuable insight on the complexities of change but also looking at the perspectives that made sense to others, Christine ensured that the team supporting and communicating with our people where best equipped to handle difficult questions and ensuring that the approach was anchored on human centricity and firm values. It’s not just Christine’s technical skills that impress me, her amazingly positive attitude, her diligence and a can-do attitude!

A consumate professional and one of the best managers I've worked with during a career of 20 plus years. Christine never expected anything from her team that she would not (or could not) do herself. I know her as somebody who is totally dedicated to her job and always loyal to the company she works for.

AFFORD A CHEM though fortunate to manufacture and supply a range of anti-viral and anti-bacterial products was forced look to more innovative idea's to stay relevant in a drastically changing industry and economy. We asked Christine Breet Communication to assist in navigating new ideas and products to our clients and to liaise between retail market outlets and us. We can proudly say that with her help we managed to not only make a difference in our community but also successfully launched a new product range that is safe effective and accessible to the public.

Our Services

Strategic communication is about communicating with purpose. It is seeing the big picture and creating the roadmap to deliver the business strategy.

At CBC, we use strategic communication to understand complex challenges. We also embrace user-centred design to offer a blended technical and creative problem-solving approach. 

Social Impact Communication

Social impact

We develop, implement, and manage programmes that improve stakeholders’ understanding of the issues affecting the business and the community where it operates. 

This builds trust and credibility through consultation and communication-based activities.

Through early engagement with communities and other stakeholders, we aim to ensure successful projects with minimal delays, unreasonable demands, and managed expectations.

Asset Based Community Development (ABCD)

ABCD challenges the traditional needs-based approach to assisting vulnerable communities. It changes mindsets and helps communities use what they have to solve their specific needs, not rely solely on handouts from external parties. By giving high priority to community concerns and grievances, positive project outcomes and operational success are prioritised.

Strategic communication is to communicate with a purpose to ensure that team members understand the business strategy and can execute it successfully. At Christine Breet Communication, we make sense of complex challenges. We embrace user-centred design to offer a blended technical and creative problem-solving approach.

Strategic communication is effective when the communication plan links to the business and development plans.

Building an effective internal communication strategy is the best way to to improve the productivity, collaboration and engagement of your workforce. Internal communication includes programmes that create awareness and influence opinion or behavioural change, including those focused on ethics, morale, internal culture or change management. CBC creates, facilitates and implements internal communication strategies to make sure that information reaches all levels of the organisation.

A robust communication audit is a valuable step in your strategic communication process. It presents a clear picture of the effectiveness of communication on both the internal and external audience. It determines if your communication is servicing the needs of your business. It identifies information gaps, vague messages, and ineffective channels. It also establishes a benchmark for ongoing communication, so you can measure efficiency and allocate your resources wisely.

Change communication is the informational component of the change management strategy.  It helps stakeholders understand what is changing and why, and how it will particularly affect them.

The main scope and function of development communication are not just about distributing information and messages, but also to engaging stakeholders and assess the situation.

The main aims of development communication are to create an environment that is conducive to the assessment of risks and opportunities, to distributes information, and to encourage behaviour and social change.

Successful stakeholder engagement ensures sustainable and positive development in project-impacted areas.  We help organisations to better understand who their stakeholders are, what they want, why and when they want it, and how to best engage with them.

Stakeholder engagement programmes support sustainable change in development operations, and mitigate risks linked to human behaviour. At CBC we focus on participatory and interpersonal methods, rather than rely solely on media or electronic channels to engage stakeholders. We believe in a participating and co-design approach when planning a project and engaging with its stakeholders.



Our approach to training and facilitation is rooted in the belief that learning should be both engaging and purposeful. Through highly interactive sessions, we ensure participants are actively involved in the learning process, resulting in tangible results and lasting impact.

At CBC, we offer a diverse range of training programs focused on communication skills, change management, interpersonal development, customer service excellence, entrepreneurial growth, and community empowerment. Our sessions are designed to equip individuals and organisations with the skills and knowledge needed to thrive in today’s rapidly evolving landscape.

We employ a variety of methodologies, including Design-Led Thinking, Systems Theory, Asset-Based Community Development, Micro MBA, Theory of Change, and many others. By drawing on these diverse approaches, we tailor our training programs to meet the unique needs and objectives of our clients, ensuring maximum effectiveness and relevance.
