[Biz Takeouts Podcast] 88: Understanding key consumer trends across the African continent

Last week on the Biz Takeouts Marketing and Media Radio show we chatted to Terry Behan, MD of VWV (@VWVGroup) Africa and the Middle East to chat about his recent book called Connect with the Continent. The book looks at key insights into customer trends in Africa. We find out more about the book and what we need to know about doing business in Africa.
Then later in the show we look at Tony Koenderman's AdReview Awards. The publication, out on 22 May will rank 64 of SA's top advertising agencies and gives marketers vital information on how to choose the agency they want to work with. We chat to Tony Koenderman to find out more.

Get all the information by listening to this week's podcast of the show, which airs every Thursday 9am-10am streamed live via 2oceansVibe Radio. [twitterfall]


Via telephone on Thursday 8 May we hosted Terry Behan, MD of VWV Africa and the Middle East.

BizcommunityWhat made you decide to publish a book about doing business in Africa?

Terry Behan: Being exposed to the business in Africa, I noticed people talk about the opportunities, but don't really talk about the understanding and differences of building brands in Africa compared to the rest of the world.

BizcommunityDo you think Africa is the next big frontier for brands?

Terry Behan: For sure, at a macro economic view, Africa is the next big thing. Africa as one unit and one market is growing rapidly and businesses coming in now are going to reap the benefits in the future?

Listen to the podcast to hear the rest of what Terry Behan had to say about doing business and building brands in Africa.
