Christophe Guibeleguiet, GlobeScan co-CEO said: “We are delighted about this new development. GlobeScan has been working across Africa for global companies, multilateral organizations and international NGOs for over a decade. Our client network in South Africa has expanded to such an extent that it was a natural step for us to open a new office here. Our clients will be supported by a dedicated team who have a strong local knowledge of these new dynamic markets, fully understand the stakeholder ecosystem and can help them achieve better outcomes from their stakeholder engagement.”

Our research shows that there is a growing need for greater integration of all activities related to stakeholder engagement.
