Interview with Thebe Ikalafeng on the Branding and Reputation of Africa

Very pleased to be able to bring you this interview with Brand Africa ‘guru’ Thebe Ikalafeng, who gives us an update on the current state of the branding and reputation of countries in Africa – and the continent as a whole.

Thebe’s interview is as much a talk of inspiration as it is a call for action. It is also a wake-up call aimed at those of us not living in Africa, to check whether our perceptions of Africa still match reality.

Learn about:

  • The incredible volume of innovation happening across the content of Africa;
  • The strongest and weakest points of Brand Africa, according to Thebe Ikalafeng;
  • The biggest changes in Africa’s image abroad in recent years;
  • How a country’s political leadership influences its Place Brand;
  • How great brands have a catalytic impact on their societies and create a better way of life.
