The conversation capitalists: Tony Koenderman | Craig Page-Lee | Yvonne Johnston | Jerry Mpufane
Creativity verses return on investment? In many instances the “money people” are running the strategic execution of brand campaigns. Is this the right way to be doing this? What has happened to creativity leading the strategic campaign and is there real value and relevance to creative industry awards.
The question posed to the guests of T’s & C’s Apply was a simple one – Creative agency awards – Are they relevant and do we need them? Neither Yvonne nor Jerry was briefed before being invited to join the conversation. They were literally given the topic and the conversation unfolded, whilst the record button was pushed.

Yvonne Johnston has had a long and successful career in the communications field, firstly for twenty years in advertising, as a Media Director where her last position was as the Group Media Director for Ogilvy and Mather from 1993-1998. It was a natural progression to move across to the Client or Marketing side of the desk. After short sojourns at Primedia and Nedbank, she discovered that she wasn’t a corporate animal, so she started her own business, Refreshing Marketing. From here she was head hunted by Frederik Van Zyl Slabbert who asked her to combine her passions for marketing and for South Africa and head a fledgling marketing authority, being instituted by President Thabo Mbeki to establish and promote a clear-cut and definitive brand for South Africa. read more…
