BizRadio chatted to Darrell Kofkin – Global Marketing Networks Chief Executive about the changing face of Marketing in Africa and their role in assisting that change.
It is forecast that by 2020 …..
- Africa’s collective GDP will be in the region of USD$2.6 Trillion
- Africa’s consumer spending by 2020 will be $1.4 Trillion
- The number of African households with discretionary income will be 128 million
In the face of growing customer choice and market transparency, the rise in the empowered consumer, the influence of digital technologies, and the requirement for Marketing to deliver a demonstrable return on its investment, the shift in marketing in recent years has been profound. And given the forecasts above the role of today’s and tomorrow’s African Marketing Leaders is going to become ever more critical to the success of African business.
