Missing Link was born

It all started back in ‘97.

We’re always telling customers to turn small ideas into big results. That’s because we know how it’s done. Back in 1997, Richard Mulholland was a humble (ha!) marketing manager at Gearhouse, one of South Africa’s premier staging companies. That’s when he figured that you could use the same top-shelf AV equipment and brilliant tech guys for corporate presentations – and get rock star results. We’ve been helping local and international large companies and listed entities do things smarter, faster and more effectively ever since.

Audience Optimisation Units

If you’re bored with your story, how do you think your audience feels? We’ll start with a fresh view on your content, define your story and use PowerPoint, Keynote, Prezi, PowToons to get the most out of presenters and audiences alike.


Knowledge should be shared and our training department would love to help your people understand more, think differently and execute successfully, no matter the scenario.


Video can do things live presenters just can’t. We’ll handle the shooting and editing, music and animation and bring the big idea to life.


Even with exceptional execution, most failures are still down to inadequate insight. That’s why our first step is always into strategy, making sure that your objective is at the heart of everything we do.


Getting ideas across to an audience is one thing, getting ideas out of them is something else. We’ve spent years of developing our own methods of doing just that – from CEO strategy sessions to large scale conference interventions.
