Implement GDPR or organisations risk losing business
Implement GDPR or organisations risk losing business

For businesses around the world, including Africa, the implementation of the European Union's (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is particularly pertinent. This is because the GDPR applies not only to all states in the EU, but more especially to any companies that market goods or services to EU residents. Without GDPR-compliance, which was widely enforced on 25 May 2018, these organisations risk losing business opportunities.

Cause marketing for millennials
Cause marketing for millennials

From poverty and lack of feminine hygiene products to access to clean water, financial services and education, it's no secret that our country faces enormous challenges. Government and Non-profit organisations are doing their best to champion those who lack access to the basics in life, but they can't succeed alone. The challenges are too big, too complicated, and too expensive. There is an overwhelming need for public and private sectors to come together to help better our society.

Time-saving hacks for event planners
Time-saving hacks for event planners

As great as having an abundance of time to plan an event would be, in most cases we find that ample lead time and manageable timelines are more best-case scenarios than actual realities.

Experience, it's more than entertainment
Experience, it's more than entertainment

"The problem with the term 'experiential' is that everything is an experience. Queuing for forty-five minutes at the Post Office is an experience, and a memorable one to boot, but it's probably not something to be held up as an example of best practice. Shoppers want engaging spaces that they can relate to, that make them feel a part of a community, that show them some respect...Genuine hospitality you might call it, and it should certainly be at the very top of every retailer's list of priorities." - Howard Saunders, Retail Futurist
