Our story

Good things come together with Ten x Collective

We, at Ten x Collective, have conceived, shaped and published countless brand stories over the years. This is ours…

In 2010 our founder, Lisa Pellatt, set up Marvello and Mill, a communications company determined to help brands develop stronger connections with relevant partners, collaborators and audiences. Over the years she established symbiotic relationships and aligned the like-minded, creating extraordinary projects and game-changing campaigns. Then, after about a decade, it felt right to level up, hone her strategic strengths and expand. Cue the birth of Ten x Collective.

Driven by a belief that doing good is good for business, we work with organisations and brands that consider impact to be as important as growth and prosperity. Our fine-tuned communications ecosystem supports and complements our clients’ business efforts, putting them in touch with those that matter most.

And our purpose-designed strategies, tools and methodologies are all based on a fundamental human truth: connections create thriving collectives.

Over the years our network has grown to include South Africa’s brightest doers, thinkers and shapers from across the media landscape. Working with this extensive talent pool, we have expanded our services and ventured into publishing, personal brand development, thought leadership and digital integration.

The power of this collective force – driven by infectious ideas and meticulous strategic support – creates the perfect platform for us to amplify, engage and help our clients make a mark. This is what makes us tick.

“Aside from the resounding success of the campaign, the Ten x Collective team was a pleasure to deal with. All team members were knowledgeable and skilled in their areas of delivery, responded quickly to queries, and exhibited complete professionalism in all dealings with the client. I would have no hesitation in recommending their services, and hope that we can engage their services on future projects.”

Managing Director: Africa House for Bord Bia
“There are many things important in a work relationship, especially with an outside supplier, but trust and belief in your business and path forward is something that I feel is very important. This was the foundation of our work relationship and adventures together. I trusted Lisa and her team with every part of my being to take care of Candide as I would, and to share the heart and soul of our business just like I would. Integrity, teamwork, quality and passion for what they are doing are – in my opinion – the foundations of this team, and the very essence of each step of success we’ve walked with them.”
