Then, on Biz Takeouts, we welcomed the CEO of brand intelligence firm, Ornico (@OrnicoMedia), Oresti Patricios (@Orestaki) to talk about a recent opinion piece he wrote called: "Africa must build industries for the continent". The article looked at the impact of the recent spurt of SA agencies been bought out by large global agencies. We look at the impact on the agency management, the staff and the level of service and creativity for clients when agencies "sell out" to multinationals. We also look at the interest in SA agencies for the global agencies as well as the economical effects for SA on buy outs.
Oresti is quite clear in his feelings of "selling out" and how the only pro for an agency and owner is the payout, where the cons outway this cash benefit in many ways.
