Next Digibate | Panel announced | To converge or not to converge is no longer the question


Integration is no longer an option but the way agencies have to operate. This is the theme for the next Thought Leadership Digibate to be held in Cape Town on 3 August 2012 brought to you by Aegis Media in conjunction with BizCommunity.

 The Digibate, which aims at creating conversation, sharing insights and challenging the status quo, will address the following elements that are very pertinent to the media marketing sector.

  • The agency of 2013 – what does that mean?
  • Traditional terminologies versus the new wave of terminologies?
  • What is an integrated agency?
  • How do we shift from traditional to integrated?
  • Do current agencies have to shift as clients are forcing them to shift, or is it the other way around?
  • How does the current traditional advertising agency manage this?
  • What is the state of competition between the agencies – do traditional BIG agencies have to compete with smaller more flexible agencies?

The panel will be made up of industry experts who know firsthand the ins and outs of the integrated marketing approach. The discussion will moderated by Dawn Rowlands, CEO Sub Saharan Africa, Aegis Media

  Nic van den Bergh – Trading Director, Aegis Media SSA

Jono Swanepoel – Executive Creative & Strategic Director, LeftField

Craig Page-Lee – Managing Director, Posterscope

Awie Erasmus – Account Director, Ogilvy

Dave Bester, CEO, Bester Burke

The Digibate will be streamed live on from 09h30 to 11h00, with podcasts available soon there after.
