A lesson for Cell C - you could have turned a moan into a tribute

Suhana Gordhan:* Advertising wizard David Ogilvy said: "The consumer is not a moron. She's your wife." I love this quote because it humanises the consumer in a way that many brands don't. The consumer is not a biological virus to be studied in a fish bowl. Consumers are so human - flawed, unpredictable, forgiving and very powerful.
