Brand power isn't magical - it's experiential

Bringing a nutritious, quality product to market is task one. Strategising, creating, producing, implementing and effecting the story of your offering - and how it compares with the range of choice in that category - comprises tasks two through 99. Developing communications that break through the mass of clutter already in the market is a piece of the pie that experiential marketing is growing - and with good reason.

The Loerie Awards: One long stick fight

For me, creativity has always been terrifying. The first time I came across something remotely creative was at my grand parents' home in the rural village of Nzungiseni in Mount Ayliff, Eastern Cape. I was four years old. My grandfather and I were watching his cattle graze on the slopes of Intaba Yentsizwa (the Mountain of men) when a group of men, wielding spears and knobkerries, marched past chanting a song.

Is SA's positioning of "Inspiring New Ways" right?

As a proudly SA person, I am very concerned regarding the image of SA world wide. As a marketing strategist I am even more concerned.

Looking back: 20 years of African language radio

I grew up in the Eastern Cape in the 80s, we used to listen to Radio Xhosa, (now called Umhlobo Wenene) and it was the only radio station we knew. Very few houses in the village had television sets and they were only operated by using old car batteries.
