About Megan Power and Power LAB

Megan Power

Power LAB is a strategic communications agency, offering a full range of communications support, including content management, brand reputation, crisis readiness and management, media relations, and customer experience auditing, mapping and execution.

It is headed up by former award-winning investigative journalist, editor and columnist Megan Power, who brings nearly 30 years of media experience and skill to the role. As part of the Sunday Times’ investigative unit for several years, Megan broke numerous front-page stories including the explosive arms deal, former health minister Manto Tshabalala-Msimang’s dodgy liver transplant, the banned dye Sudan Red in foods on supermarket shelves, and the drug trafficking wife of SA’s former spy chief.

More recently, Megan spent six years penning the eponymous The Power Report, a hard-hitting weekly consumer column in the Sunday Times, which earned her the respect of consumers and big business alike.

Megan’s extensive network of contacts, within and outside media, and her ability to select, dissect, and package key information and messaging to the right audience – in a no-nonsense way – is a unique hallmark of Power LAB.
