On Thursday 22nd August, WiM Africa was in Durban, South Africa to deliver INFLUENCE – harnessing one’s own power of influence and examining the myths, truths and longevity of influencer marketing. In association with the Durban Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the event took place during women’s month in South Africa, and brought together senior professionals from global brands, experts in influencer marketing and female business owners and marketing professionals. The aim was to hear and be inspired by the stories of professional women on how they develop and maximise their powers of influence and also to gain insights in the phenomenon that has become influencer marketing.

One of the highlights of last year's Loeries Masterclasses was the Women in Marketing (WIM) Africa launch event. Here Andrea Opoku, director and Africa ambassador for Women in Marketing, shares growth since then as well as the context of this year's WIM Africa event on the power of women in influencer marketing, with some interesting global insights.
This Women's Day in SA, we welcomed news that the Loeries has joined forces with UN Women's Unstereotype Alliance initiative, to launch its South Africa chapter, set to use the advertising industry as a force for good to drive positive change all over the world. We also learn what to expect from the UN Women South Africa multi-country office's Loeries 2019 masterclass with Dove, on advertising leading society.
