New Moon ending October 2016
October 31, 2016
The New Moon for October 2016 was on Saturday, 30 October.
Many people worldwide believe that the New Moon is the time to set new goals and intentions for the month ahead.
A time for beginnings.

For many of us at this time of year, especially in the Southern Hemisphere, it is a time when we need to regroup, redraw and dig deep for the last 6 weeks of work before our annual holidays. This time of year in South Africa is always busy, many businesses are not taking on new work as they want to complete the work they have before the Christmas holidays.

So the last few months involve completing as well as setting new goals for the month ahead.

It is also a time to say thank you to all our clients and suppliers and to tie up all loose ends and finish what we need to do before the end of the year.

Brand Innovation is here to assist you in saying thank you to your clients, suppliers and staff.

We wish you a great November 2016.

End of year creative corporate gifts for clients
September 12, 2016
End of year creative corporate gifts for clients. September is here and with that, here in Africa, a time of new beginnings, when the jasmine flowers, when there is a spring in our steps and the knowledge that the Christmas holidays are close.

It feels like the year has just begun, but we are so close to the end of the year.

There still feels like so much must be done.

Now is the time to plan for the end of year, to continue doing good business, to plan for next year and to thank and celebrate those who are our partners in business.

Now is the time to acknowledge our clients and customers who continue to trust us with their business.

Unique Corporate Gifts


So that brings me to the idea of what are creative corporate gifts that I would love to get?

What end of year gifts can inspire and help others in some way?

Well, top of my list is the fit tracker, of which we have 2 options.

I have been wearing one to test it and it is really helping me “take more steps” each day.

I love exercise, but with work always taking focus, even when I am at home, I often don’t take enough steps.

It is said we should take 10 000 steps a day. As I type this, I am close to 7000, which means I might have to run around the block later.

But how great to give a gift that helps people exercise and gives them a feeling of achieving their goals of 10 000 steps.

We all need to be moving more, so give a positive and creative gift this end of year.

It has many great features, like find your phone and more.

So for my first creative gift that for me would be great to give and receive, it is the fit tracker.

Head over to our product pages for the 2 options: The Fit Tech Tracker and The Fitboosta Activity Tracker.
