“We partner with world-class clients and professional, inspirational people. Read what some of them have to say about us:”

We have included some comments from our COOL clients…

Debs Whittaker is one of the most vivacious and high-energy people I have ever known and she is always full of fresh ideas for her business and for her clients. I first met Debs when she attended one of my writing workshops nearly two decades ago. Since then I have interacted with her as a journalist and watched her grow a successful business and reinvent it in times of disruption such as during the pandemic. She has a knack of attracting extraordinary people to work for her and invests in developing their skills. I know this firsthand, because she has sent her people to me for writing training.

Debs is a dynamic, passionate, and remarkable professional and a seasoned marketing professional willing to give back where possible to enhance skills, knowledge and promote collaboration worldwide. She is a breath of fresh air for the industry, easy to work with, great attitude, always willing to learn and has a great personality. On behalf of the industry, I would like to say a “Gargantuan Thank You” to her for “Giving Back” in such a difficult time and sharing relentlessly her international knowledge, experience, expertise and passion to All of Us and being a Role Model to me and for many around the world. Thanks a Million Debs and keep shining!

I love working with Debs. She always arranges the best events and makes everyone feel like the guest of honour. Her secret sauce is how she gets to know both the business objectives and the customer’s needs, creating an environment where the two can meet. Debs makes an impact in a quiet, no-fuss sort of way which allows space for all personalities to shine around her. She makes a difference to any team.

Congratulations to Saryx Engineering Group powering HSEC Online® for successfully completing the JSE Enterprise Acceleration Pilot Programme.

“The JSE Accelerator Programme is intended to foster the next generation of corporate South Africa giving you access to markets; it’s meant to be quick and easy for it to accelerate. The JSE network lends itself to opportunities and it’s a fantastic opportunity as it has CEOs, mentors, and other entrepreneurs to learn from.

One of my top highlights of the programme was the marketing and sales value chain. After attending that session one of the guest speakers Debs Whittaker from Coolcumba actually met with us outside of the programme and is now hired to do our sales and marketing for the Saryx Group which is fantastic.”
