Lifa understands that you need to communicate to a varied set of stakeholders for equally varied reasons. We combine strategy & reputation management, investor relations, and the power of branding to deliver a golden thread for your communication goals.



We are industry challengers focused on creating dynamic and innovative communications efforts customised to suit your needs. We achieve this through defined strategy, branding and investor relations.


We are strategists, communication innovators and storytellers. Our work is based on insights, research and a genuine understanding of the markets in which we operate.


Lifa was established in 2013 with the vision of bringing our communications expertise and knowledge of the African market to local and international clients.


We believe that communications and investor relations should not be treated as an add-on but rather be viewed as a substantial part of a company’s strategic vision and business plan. We use a holistic approach, combining traditional methods with new technology and tactics to set a firm foundation for your future success while considering your business goals at every turn.


Our passion is to advise and actively support our clients in telling their stories. We place value on creating innovative communication solutions that alter people’s perceptions, transform their behaviour and build lasting relationships.





A firm is only as good as its people, and we’re fortunate to have some of the best and brightest in the business.


Our dedicated team of professionals consists of communications, marketing finance, branding, design and media specialists who challenge the status quo and boast extensive experience in each of our focus areas. This dynamic and skilled team of visionaries and achievers is run and managed by Gabriella von Ille, the founder of Lifa.
