Stories connect us as humans and help us create real relationships.

Decode Communications is led by the owner manager and communications strategist, Lorato Tshenkeng, ex-Air Force and Mail & Guardian’s Top 200 Young South African. Some of our employees are former journalists, who know the best ways to create and pitch stories and to reach editors and reporters.

We have experience in continually delivering top media results thanks to strong media and influence relationships, strategic counsel and our deep level of knowledge.

Since Decode Public Relations is not an employee of any of its clients, we give an honest, outsider view of your company and the potential for what story ideas will work.

With our editorial and creative skills, we develop messages to ensure all content is on-target, from speaking to media opportunities that promote executive visibility and build thought leadership, we work to get the word out in a way that highlights what is different, innovative, and authentic.

We have experience and know-how to get target audiences to pay attention and to deliver results that are aligned with your business goals to support your growth and success. We thrive on helping our clients make the audiences who matter most, like customers, partners, and employees.
