EP100: Celebrating 100 Episodes with Ivan Moroke

On The DOC & GURU Podcast, we celebrate a fantastic milestone of our 100th episode this week with a chat to Ivan Moroke, CEO of Kantar SA and the Marketing Achievement Awards Chairperson. Ivan was our very first guest two years ago, and we thought it very fitting to invite him back to celebrate this day with us.

We start off by throwing back to that first interview and chatting about how resilient and strong brands have outperformed others, the danger of ‘looking at brands through a Sandton lens’, and discuss brands with purpose, trust and shared value. Then onto today, and the exciting highlights from the recent Kantar webinar, ‘Africa Life’ and the growth opportunities for brands and businesses on the continent. So if you want to hear about Google’s $1bn investment into Africa and consumer confidence, technology, African lifestyle, e-commerce, health & wellness and a whole lot more…then don’t miss this episode.

And in true DOC & GURU style, our fantastic guests always give more as Ivan chat’s about the real strength and business imperative of truly diverse teams, how the initiatives of creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship are taking shape, as well as why marketers should enter the Marketing Achievement Awards. With this season’s theme of ‘Marketing Means Business’, there is no better time for top marketers to step up and show how your science and art has resulted in great business success.

We would like to close by saying a BIG and SINCERE THANK YOU to all of our fantastic guests over the past 100 episodes and here’s to the next century!
