Since launching in 2013 we’ve helped many small to medium-sized businesses around the world use social media marketing to keep in touch with their target market and grow their brand presence online.
What started out as a one-Lamb band has grown into a flock of Lambs working out of Durban, South Africa and Oxfordshire in the United Kingdom. The company’s first ever social media post for a client can be traced back to Dubai where Laura was responsible for managing the social media accounts for a five-star resort there.
She returned to South Africa, working a full time job and doing social media as a side hustle for clients in the evenings. Her work soon found traction which meant she was soon taking Fridays off from her full-time job to meet new clients.
With momentum on her side, Laura made the decision to go on her own in 2016, setting up a home office. A year later she was joined by Cali and the ‘flock’ became official. In 2018 The Social Lamb moved into new offices in Mount Edgecombe, KwaZulu-Natal. A year later they renovated their offices to make space for some new Lambs and opened a new office in the UK. With clients all over the world Skype dates and meetings are as common at the office as a morning coffee to start the day and an afternoon glass of wine to end it off!
Why Lamb!? Well, before Laura got married she quite liked the idea of having her now (thankfully) husband’s initials with her name – Laura Ann Mitchell. Adding a silent B seemed perfect and the name stuck. Voila!
The company now has an awesome personality and a memorable name. At networking events you may hear others Baaaaaaaaah at the Lambs whenever we talk. We love it!

As gentle as they come, Mands fits into the flock like salsa goes with nachos. Her heart is as soft as wool and her light shines bright! A true creative at heart, Mands taps into the emotions of each client's audience using her superpower of empathy. Not only does compassion run deep in her creativity, her content is just about as flawless as her skin. There are many reasons why we need Mands around. One of them is because she's the only one in the office that can sing, but most of all because her tranquil energy brings much needed balance and harmony to the crazy Lamb office.
Kendyll is our wanderlust lamb who has travelled the world and has some epic stories about the places she's been! A gentle soul with a wealth of knowledge and a sixth-sense for understanding people and emotions. She has a background in HR and she might've been a native American in her past life since she has a natural remedy for almost every ailment that pops up in the office. We love the depth of her creativity paired with her meticulous eye for detail.
Gina is a gentle soul who carries herself with quiet confidence. Having lived in Thailand and gotten engaged in Spain, she and her fiancé are both passionate about travelling the world! She has a taste for good coffee and if you can't find her in the office, chances are she is making a cup of tea - confusing right? This baaahd-ass Lamb is dedicated to her daily dose of CrossFit and getting that perfect Instagram photo of her coffee before taking that first sip... serious dedication and we love it! Thank you for choosing to be part of our flock.
Div entered the pasture as a Copywriter but has also become our design Jedi and IT expert. She’s a kind and caring soul known for her wicked baking skills (she brings naughty treats to the office), photographic memory and biceps to lift like a baaahd-ass. She’s our walking thesaurus and emotional rock, always ready with a lame joke or a warm hug. We don’t know what we’d do without her.
Laura has a passion for people, it's as simple as that. She started off The Social Lamb as her side hustle and as her love grew for it so did her plans to expand the flock! Laura is the true essence of our "why" at The Social Lamb, and that is BELONGING. From creating an incredibly nurturing environment to going the extra mile for all that come into her life. Affectionately known as "Mamma Lamb" or "The Mutton" Laura is feisty and fiercely protects those she cares about. She is a baaaaahd-ass businesswoman, breaking glass ceilings and forging her own path.
