Mike Jones
All we need is time

During the South African Advertising, Performance and Excellence Awards (APEX Awards), Graham Warsop spoke about his vision for a successful marketing and advertising future. What was clear about his views, directed at the marketing, advertising, promotions, brand building and digital fraternity, is that we need to work harder at finding the intersection between creativity and business needs. Warsop defined the output from the combination of this magic, or creativity, with logic as "innovative thinking based on relevance" rather than simply creativity.

Using digital innovation to upscale Africa - Amorphous
Using digital innovation to upscale Africa

Doctors are restricted in the treatment they can administer to patients, as their data collection is still predominantly paper based, allowing for records to be lost, mismanaged and destroyed. In addition, the computers and technology available to hospitals are used mainly to record payments rather than to chart treatments and profiles.
