A Story That's Far From Ordinary
With offices in both the USA and the UK, Intellek is a founding member of the learning technology industry. For over 30 years we have pioneered the development of cutting-edge learning technology, with a large and diverse portfolio of international clientele.
In 2010 Claire Revell, who joined the business in 2003 as a developer, worked remotely for the business while she lived in South Africa pursuing her other passion – philanthropy.
It was at that time Claire knew she wanted to be at the helm of Intellek, for three reasons:
1. Strive for female representation in STEM and leadership roles.
2. Leverage technology to solve real-world problems.
3. Pave the way for a real change in technology to strengthen skills, maintain a culture of continued learning, while empowering people to excel in every education institution and business worldwide.
Claire believes that learning should be considered not only a tool for eradicating poverty but also as an opportunity to ignite a revolution for future progress.
In 2017 the board of directors bought into a bigger, bolder, braver vision for the business and Claire was appointed Director & Chief Executive Officer.
Intellek, in Afrikaans means ‘intellect’, creating an important link to Claire’s altruistic involvement in South Africa.
A Logo That's Far From Ordinary
The Gazelle is a genus of the Antelope group, with only one species occurring in South Africa – the Springbok. Alongside being recognized as the national animal of SA (where the dream of Intellek was first realized), our female Springbok logo depicts strength, agility and intelligence, it is a powerful symbol of women rising above adversity.
This amplifies that we are proud to be a female-led company, that stands in the gap for women in business, continually fighting for fair and equal representation in STEM and leadership roles.
In a business sense, the Gazelle is a company (often found in the tech space) that shows high growth and increased revenue. Gazelle companies are also known for job creation and are credited for being among the best sources of new employment in open, entrepreneurial economies.
Intellek is most definitely a Gazelle!

Charities We Support That Are Far From Ordinary
1000 Hills Community
1000 Hills Community Helpers is situated in Inchanga, Kwazulu Natal in South Africa. With the dedication of their Volunteers, Staff Members, and Partners, they strive to improve the lives of everyone who needs help within the Community. 1000 Hills began in 1989 serving soup out the back of a truck, the same year that Intellek was founded! Today, they serve more than 1000 meals per day. They also provide a medical center, a pre-school, a counseling facility, an HIV/TB support group, and a skills development program.
In 2010, Intellek’s CEO Claire Revell lived in South Africa for some time. During this time, the support for 1000 Hills began and she implemented Intellek’s eLearning to enhance the skills programs that they were running. Claire also implemented the office-based eLearning into several schools in the surrounding areas, to enhance their training curriculum.
Today, a percentage of each purchase goes directly from Intellek to 1000 Hills. In addition, Claire visits the Inchanga community every other year to volunteer. She always takes as much additional luggage as possible, (8 suitcases last time!) so that she can take clothes, shoes, and books for all those visiting the Community Centre.
