“The Roger Federer Foundation required localised PR that would not only generate awareness for the Match In Africa 6 exhibition match but also for the breaking of a world record. The agency worked with the International Communication’s team as the South African representatives managing the drafting and issuing of press releases, setting up of media interviews, liaising with local and international media, media accreditation, media centre management, management of the various media events including press briefings, mixed zone interviews, Q&A’s with key spokespeople, management of media photographers and briefings, exclusive Dubai international media one-on-one interviews with Roger Federer, social media management, website management and reporting.
In my role as Head of Communications for the exhibition match I found the agency to be efficient, professional and committed about their client and their client’s objectives, as well as dedicated to meeting the media’s requirements.
I enjoyed working with the agency team and The Lime Envelope’s strategic approach, media relations skills, professionalism and enthusiasm resulted in extensive PR coverage across print, online, broadcast and social media.
We greatly valued the agency’s commitment and expertise and wish to warmly recommend The Lime Envelope.”

“I am writing this letter of reference on behalf of No Boundaries Events Pty Ltd. Kerry, Sarah and the team from The Lime Envelope were appointed as the local PR Agency for the Match in Africa 6 event where Roger Federer played Rafael Nadal in Cape Town in February 2020.
Although The Lime Envelope were a smaller agency then many of the others we considered for this major event, we believed they would be the ideal fit and be more than capable for the daunting task. The attributes we felt stood them in good stead were: • Could upscale as needed • Dedicated a team to the event so we could deliver as needed • Expertise in all elements of PR • Had fun, fresh creative ideas that were not only unique but also budget conscious
We believe the team at The Lime Envelope were a great choice for our event, delivered on their brief, were within budget, and handled the big day without issue. We would certainly recommend the agency if you are looking for hands on, personal care and a fun and innovative campaign.”
Holger Losch, Founder and Director, No Boundaries Events Pty Ltd
“I own NAG (website), rAge and Rush (events) and have been doing shows/events in the computer gaming, technology, esports and geek culture space for the last 18 years. Sarah Martin and Kerry Oliver from The Lime Envelope have been with all of my event projects since the beginning, and are always ready to assist my company in everything we do.
There is often a lot going on behind the scenes that I’m not made aware of, such as their ongoing relationships with all the media, and they constantly make sure to maintain relations with most of my expo clients so that we’re always able to offer the best kinds of experiences for everyone – from the general public attending my shows to my VIP guests.
The Lime Envelope offers professional solutions-based outcomes and I wouldn’t feel comfortable launching a new event experience without their involvement. The passion and drive with which Sarah and Kerry work towards achieving the goals and objectives of our events, partners and sponsors is professional and exemplary.”

“A sincere thank you for the event management deployed not only for the 3 Cannes Lions screenings held in Durban, Cape Town and Johannesburg in the last 4 weeks; but also for the work done during the week that Philip was in South Africa. Cinemark was able to add value to clients’ brand communications strategies through the Learnings from the Lions Seminar – by highlighting case studies and through a panel discussion by industry leaders the CCO Draft SA Brett Morris, ECD Louw & Partners Cape Town Kirk Gainsford, ECD Ogilvy & Mather Mariana O’Kelly and the legendary Andy Rice. This initiative put the spotlight on PRIMEDIA as the Broadcasting, Outdoor and Cinemark brands dominated the media landscape. Your professional drive and commitment as business partner will not doubt contribute towards achieving our set marketing objectives. Considering that this marketing program was initiated in the last four weeks and is already yielding in terms of new sales, media coverage and reinforcing Cinemark’s value proposition as media solutions partner is an indication of the successes to yet unfold. Once again, we thank you.”
