Time to own and hone the advertising industryArticle

We have long lamented the draining of the skills pool in the advertising industry. And many people have made good arguments as to why we are experiencing the 'juniorfication' of the industry and what we can do about this. However, I think that unless we are able to address this issue holistically, on an industry-wide basis, we risk a further spiral.

Birthing a renewed ad industryArticle

The Association for Communication and Advertising (ACA) is the professional body for the sector and represents approximately 100 agencies, which collectively contribute almost 95% of the total measured adspend in South Africa. I became chairman of the ACA in November 2010 and am honoured to serve an organisation with such a long history (it was formed in 1942), excited because it is a time of such big change for the industry, and anxious that, as a profession, we are able to reinvent ourselves for a new era.

From Dirty Skirts to dirty secrets at LoeriesArticle

The dirty little secret at Loeries this weekend, which no one wanted to really mention in public, but had plenty of opinion on privately, was the apparent inadvertent leaking of the list of Loerie awards results for most of the Saturday and Sunday night awards, by of all culprits – the Loerie committee itself. Loerie Awards MD Andrew Human called it an “IT error”, but industry folk were using much stronger language, with some award-winning creatives going so far as to call it a “disgusting oversight” which put a spoiler on the annual awards by taking away the element of surprise.
