JAG COMMUNICATIONS is a boutique PR agency whose owners have a proven track record and excellent reputation, both having worked in the industry for more than 30 years. It is headed up by Grant Bushby and Janine Greenleaf Walker whose contacts and intellectual capital make the company stand out from its competitors.

 

JAG is a small agency and completely hands-on. You don't pay for expensive office space or plush overheads. What you see is what you get and you won't find yourself or your company relegated to someone else with less experience. We work on your project personally and are 100 percent committed and accountable for every outcome.

 

We have a proven national and international track record and we pride ourselves on our attention to detail and commitment to the project - no matter what the job. We not only deliver on what we promise, but also make every effort to give our clients so much more!

We have impeccable relationships with influential individuals in the media, we write bloody well (if we say so ourselves!) and we ensure a client's needs and objectives are fully met.

The Proof is in the Pudding ...

It was a pleasure to work with such consummate professionals, who not only met the various challenges head on, but also did everything possible to fly the flag high, no matter what. For Grant and Janine nothing was too much trouble; their press releases were superb and were always spot on the mark every time which simply reflects their talent! It was also refreshing to work with service providers who do everything in their power to remain focused on the objective which, in this case, was to deliver a first class publicity campaign which I am happy to say was achieved with outstanding colours for both the Johannesburg and Durban Good Food & Wine Shows. It was truly wonderful to work with people who cared, who did everything possible to ensure the media, sponsors, exhibitors and industry colleagues experienced professional service and who treated everyone with respect and ensured they had a good experience of the Good Food & Wine Show. Once again a huge thank you and a ginormous well done!"

~ Heidi Warricker, Live Events.

I have been attending the Good Food and Wine Shows both in Joburg and Durban and, from my experience, JAG Communications has always shown 

great professionalism, energy and integrity in their work, not only for their clients, but also for the inter-national chefs. As a visiting chef, Janine and Grant always made sure to arrange interviews and generate publicity before and during the show and they have shown tremendous skills with flexibility, punctuality and diligence as well as an understanding as to what works for the interest of the show. One thing is for certain, JAG is highly proficient in their field and they go the extra mile following up leads before and after the show which reveals great dedication and commitment on behalf of the client, ensuring the right coverage on national broadsheets and other media. It's been a great pleasure working with them and I look forward to working with them again in the near future.

~ Reza Mahammad, Chef

I have had the privilege of working with Janine and Grant for many years and find them to be extremely professional, proficient and a pleasure to work with. We have collaborated on the Good Food & Wine Shows and they always deliver - from lining up interviews with celebrity chefs to organising reader events, supplying pictures and well written press releases.  

~ Hilary Biller, Sunday Times Food Editor

JAG Communications was responsible for PR across the three A+E Network brands in Africa - History, Crime + Investigation and Lifetime. Janine and Grant are professional, diligent, pro-active and easy to work with. Their wealth of media knowledge, contacts and brand input has been invaluable. The extensive media exposure they have generated for us since taking over the account has far surpassed any coverage we have received in all the years we have been operating in the South African territory. We cannot praise or recommend them highly enough.

~ Anthea Petersen, Regional Director Africa A+E Networks

Janine and Grant made the entire Good Food and Wine Show experience in Joburg and Durban such a pleasure, especially because I didn't know anyone. They are both such amazing people to work with and because of their nature, work has now become a great friendship. I hope to return in the near future and will only hope that it's JAG Communications in control of all PR and media again.

~Brent Owens, MasterChef Australia Winner 2014

 

I contracted JAG Communication to assist with our PR as we were lacking significant and meaningful exposure in our social media and were missing coverage in the print and broadcast media. From the start we had no regrets as, within a short space of time, they garnered some amazing media coverage and much more exposure via our social media platforms. Janine and Grant have been of great assistance - outside their call of duty - to make sure that we are where we need to be. During this period where the economy and consumer spirit is down, JAG has been of great help. I only have compliments and high recommendations for this company.

~ Michel Morand, MD and Chef, Bistro Michel

 

We have, on a number of occasions, had the pleasure of experiencing the expertise and professionalism of JAG Communications. We have been amazed at the high level of PR coverage they have always achieved, particularly for the Good Food & Wine Shows, as Jenny Morris has been appearing on that show since its inception. We found that JAG Communications has excelled in achieving coverage others can only be envious of.

~ David & Jenny Morris, Giggling Gourmet

I would like to personally extend my thanks and appreciation to you, for allowing us to be a part of this year's Good Food and Wine Show and at the same time, we also wish to thank you for inviting us to the media con-ference. Both events were planned to perfection and it is evident that you and your team put in a great deal of time and effort. We really do commend you for your efficiency, generosity and dedication. Hope to deal with you again in the near future! It was indeed a pleasure meeting you.  

~ Elaine Naidoo, Digital Manager, The Rising Sun Newspapers

"JAG Communications launched VIDI into the marketplace with an exceptional PR campaign. The launch event itself was slick and organised and the calibre of media in attendance was exactly what we were targeting. Subsequent press coverage has been phenomenal." 

~ Taryn Uhlmann, Times Media Films 

JAG Communications has provided a consistently high level of services and professionalism to Sani-Films. They clearly understand our business and our needs and have produced fantastic results to promote our growing presence in Africa and Europe. They always deliver on their promises and get results. I would recommend them to anyone considering appointing a strong, media savvy agency.

~ Bonolo Madisakwane & Mandy Roger, SaniFilms

Grant and Janine are personable, professional, dedicated and incredibly insightful in their field. They have helped raise the profile of Oxyg3n Media and the international television work that we do, as well as connecting us with a multitude of international talent including, Brent Owens, Rick Stein, John Torode, Reza Mohammed, Renae Smith and Matt Tebbutt – just to name a few. With their assistance we are developing international food programming with this talent and have secured worldwide distribution. Grant and Janine are passionate and committed in their field of work and always go the extra mile to get things done. They have an abundance of local and international connections across multiple industries and without a doubt are held in very high regard in the media industry. Here at Oxyg3n we consider them part of the team and feel strongly that anyone would benefit from a working relationship with them. We most certainly will continue to do so. 

~ Rebecca Fuller-Campbell, Executive Producer & Co-founder, Oxyg3n Media

JAG Communications was contracted to assist with PR for the 2014 Standard Bank Joy of Jazz event. We found their work prompt, efficient, relevant and always professional. We would not hesitate to make use of their services again.
