In studio on Thursday, 6 February 2014, we hosted CEO for VWV Group (@VWVGroup), Koo Govender. Formerly the corporate communications and marketing director at M-Net, she has been involved in broadcasting and media for 22 years.

We started the show by looking at the shift in roles for Govender, by moving from client side to agency side at VWV Group. We spoke about why experiential marketing is an integral part of the marketing mix, where she explains how it gives you an emotional connection with a brand.

We also touch on how you measure experiential marketing campaigns and how campaign objectives determine ROI. Lastly, we look at the soon-to-be-launched Women's Leadership Academy, what the academy is offering, how it will change lives in South Africa and how you can get involved.
