"I am delighted to be able to share my thoughts on Lesley Gikas and Refresh PR. Lesley is an incredibly efficient person – in fact, she is always one of the first to respond to my beauty briefs. She is a breath of fresh air as she is always upbeat and enthusiastic – no request in too big. All those attributes have been entrenched in Refresh PR’s philosophy and approach to business and it’s great to see the company grow from strength to strength because of these traits."
Caro Verster, previous contributing beauty editor for Women’s Health South Africa, now living in Canada
"I have worked with Lesley over the past couple of years and she has always made sure that all our arrangements for the Nederburg Auction shoot went smoothly. Not only is she highly professional; with her warm and easy going personality, she is also a pleasure to work with.”
Marius van de Wall - Producer of Fiesta
"Lesley has handled the media publicity for the Nederburg Auction for three years now and grown exponentially in experience, understanding of media demands, the personalities that make up that component and general professional service over that time. Her efficiency and willingness to assist has significantly simplified the reporting process, as well as the host of logistics that correspond to getting the media to Paarl for the two-day event."
Nicola Jenvey - freelance business and wine writer
"Lesley has been the media ‘go-to’ person for the Nederburg Auction for the past three years and in my experience during that time she has been unfailingly professional, efficient and effective. Her promptness and willingness to help when responding to requests for information and images really does facilitate the media’s job of reporting on the event."
