The last installment for this month’s ‘Inspire’ sessions, in partnership with Discovery Business Insurance and Heavy Chef is all set to be an insightful discussion around influencer marketing. Join our panel of influencers in Cape Town on 26 September 2019.

How to influence people in the most effective ways is an art, and one that can have a powerful effect for businesses. This session’s panel of established and respected media personalities are gearing up to share how the right kind of influence messaging strategies can be used to attain, wield and grow business practices in positive ways.

  4. Gill Strawberry (aka Gill Attwood), the Director of Gillstrawberry PTY (Ltd), defines herself as a ‘free-range designer, media broker, photographer and concept explorer’, among other things, and will be adding her voice to offer insight into how the kinds of tactics used have an influence on the effectiveness of a strategy.
