Sir John Hegarty, international advertising icon, has been secured by the Sunday Times as guest speaker at an intimate dinner to be hosted for the creative heads of SA's most successful agencies, next week. The dinner celebrates the 'coming-together' of the advertising industry during the annual Design Indaba, held in Cape Town from 27 February to 1 March 2013.
Trevor Ormerod, GM Advertising Sales and Strategic Communications, Times Media says, "We know the potency of our clients' advertising campaigns relies on the ingenuity of the creative minds behind them. It is a given that we, the Sunday Times and Times Media Group, should always be closely involved in driving the impetus for extraordinary, award-winning, and inspired work for our advertisers."
"Sir John Hegarty is regarded as one of the world's most famous advertising creatives. He is the man who put Nick Kamen into a laundrette for Levi's jeans, and the man that introduced the immortal phrase, 'Vorsprung durch Technik' into our collective consciousness," reads the exclusive Sunday Times' invitation.
Willy Wong, Chief Creative officer & Senior VP of NYC & Co, the official marketing organisation for the City of New York, will also be among the diners. No doubt, he will be enjoying a preview of what Cape Town has to offer as World Design Capital 2014.
"Sunday Times is very proud to have engaged Sir John Hegarty to share his insights and experiences with the phenomenally creative personalities of our local industry. It will provide fascinating dinner conversation and debate," concludes Ormerod.
