Communication lessons from The Steve & Nancy Saga: A Sorbet Story

Let me first admit two things: 1. I'm a groomer. Big time. I polish. I wax. I whiten and straighten and tweak. 2. I do a fair chunk of this at Sorbet salons, making me what they call a 'guest'...

Building accountability

I think Coca Cola's 2020 Vision sums up nicely what accountability is all about: "If it is to be, it's up to me". In the words of Ghandi, "be the change you want to see in the world". The sad reality, however, is that there are too many spectators pointing fingers from the sidelines about all that's wrong with the world. And, in South Africa especially, there exists a sense of entitlement that undermines the idea of doing what is best and right for the communities and businesses in which we operate.

Our industry needs a "Hellopeter"

Do you remember the days when there were plenty of functions (xmas and other parties) where clients, agencies, freelancers, production houses and the media got together and picked up on all the "skinner" (gossip)? This was a great source of information.

The value of social interactions - decoded

In South Africa, brand pages on social networks are undergoing an evolution. What began as me-too mania as they all flocked to platforms like Facebook and Twitter simply because everyone was doing it, is now slowly becoming a far more nuanced and strategic understanding of the role these platforms can play in a broader communications strategy.

Is CSI a farce or impactful?

It's that time of the year again, when a lot of corporates go out to give Christmas parcels to the needy. They give away food parcels, clothes, toys and school uniforms, fix schools, donate funds and everything in between. They task their PR agencies to create publicity around this razzmatazz and the agency gets measured on how much publicity they got. And if the CEOs get to be interviewed on one or all the morning TV shows, they are sure as hell keeping the account for another year.

Interruptive marketing is dead - Gloo
Interruptive marketing is dead

Marketing directors and CMOs have experienced a decade of rapid change, thanks in part to the explosion of digital media and digital technology. While this wave of change has included the dramatic ascent of mobile and social media, I believe there's far more radical change to come. Change that will directly affect the way agencies and brands work together to answer the needs of the digitally enabled consumer. What I'm expecting to see is a dramatic redefinition of marketing and the role of the marketing professional.

Why not to ignore your personal brand
Why not to ignore your personal brand

Brand consistency, in the long term, ensures consistent business and career growth. Very often business owners steer clear of focusing on their personal brand, as they do not like the spotlight.

The best brands solve the simplest problems

What would a "thought leadership" article be without an Einstein quote, so here it goes; "If I had an hour to solve a problem I'd spend 55 minutes thinking about the problem and 5 minutes thinking about solutions."
