Africa through the eyes of the West - Janine Lazarus Media Consultancy
Africa through the eyes of the West

The spate of savagery spearheaded by Boko Haram in Nigeria barely got a mention in the global media space as compared with the murder of 12 Parisian journalists working for the Charlie Hebdo publication. The fact that these tragedies took place on the same day makes the contrast in media coverage ever more stark.

Chris Midgley
Changing the mindset of cost-cutting to value adding

There are a number of issues visible when we scratch below the surface and scrutinise what it means to "cut costs". As clients continue to brief agencies to "cut costs and work within smaller budgets" (often coupled with greater demands in terms of return on investment), it's not necessarily because clients want value for their money, or agencies to explore alternatives, but rather simply interchanging channels and believing this cost-cutting alternative will be as effective as the initial option the agency presented. By making the advertising and media work into simply a "commodity" there is potential to have the effectiveness reduced as well.
