ABOUT US

 

WHO WE ARE

We’re a marketing communications agency specialising in sport and entertainment. We conceptualise unique, creative initiatives that deliver impact for brand and business.

Breaking the record for 9 awards across multiple categories, including Agency of the Year at the 2017 Sport Industry Awards, we are seen as industry innovators and  thought leaders. Bookmarks, Assegai’s and Loeries have also been picked up for our standout work in the last couple years. We are proudly a Level 2 BBBEE company with learning and growth at the core of the agency.

We believe in the power of Brutal Simplicity. Simple ideas enter the brain quicker and stay there longer.

However, creative simplicity takes time, skill and in our case, very specialist knowledge in the worlds of sponsorship strategy and activation, experiential, Sport PR, entertainment PR, content creation and social media.

If you would like to see how the Levergy approach can help you generate more impactful sponsorships, experiential, PR, digital or branded content, then please get in touch.
