Hi David,

Afraid not. I focus on the global trends in the industry and the specifics of the South African market where I am based.

if you are willing to help me, please email the information to


Am not even sure if I choose a good career path in Varsity as I'm a graduate of Advertising Management. I have passion for it, very creative young woman but all these advertising agency when recruiting even for junior position requirements are cars. We may have went to Private Institution like Vega or Varsity College but our parents still don't afford to buy us cars, some do license. The are fresh minds that are doing from Colleges eager to learn & be taught in the world of advertising. Not even 10% of us in my previous class who are graduates are working. Question is what does the Ad Agency have to say about this
