This is the part where i put a disclaimer. I put my skills to action in this stable in exchange for a monthly retainer so my views are bound to be very subjective. Any ‘kiss ass’ comments should thus be excused as efforts at securing a raise.

Prital Patel - MD, Creative Edge

The lady pictured on the side (the only article image in this blog so far) is Prital Patel. She is 37 years old and runs her own graphic design house named Creative Edge Ltd, which she founded in 1995 (do the math – she was only 22 then). Last year , Creative Edge was named one of the Top 100 SMEs in Kenya. This year, Prital has been named one of the Top 40 Women under 40 by the authoritative Business Daily.

What started as a design house (apparently with 1 designer and an MD who knew nothing about design), is now on its way to becoming a fully fledged Branding agency, set to play in the big leagues with the likes of Ogilvy Mathers and Lowe Scanad.

What does Prital consider to be the secret to success? (Your Pens and Papers out please)

“It takes a lot of perseverance. You have to prioritise. If success is your aim, you have to hang in there despite the challenges” She says.

Having ventured out into Web development and e-Marketing already, Prital has just added hundreds of businesses to her list of competitors, and without the slightest hesitation, she now looks towards overcoming this new challenge and topping the list once again. That’s where yours truly comes in. Talk about walking the talk.

As i join the rest of the Creative Edge team in toasting to this new achievement, I can only marvel in admiration, and hope to follow in her foot steps.

    What i do nott realize is actually how you’re no longer really a lot more smartly-favored
    than you may be now. You’re so intelligent.
    You already know therefore considerably in relation to this
    matter, made me in my view imagine it from a lot of numerous
    angles. Its like men annd women aren’t interested unless it is one thing
    to do with Girl gaga! Your individual stuffs great. All the time care for it up!
