In part II of the series spotlighting African women featured on the WiM 2020 Global Women In Marketing List - celebrating 10 years of the Women in Marketing Awards - MarkLives speaks to Zumi Njongwe.
Zumi Njongwe, Consumer Communications & Marketing Excellence Director at Nestlé East & Southern Africa Region (ESAR), shares with Charles Lee Mathews the beauty she's found in the pandemic and setting teams up for success.
“What we need to do is to set up our teams to win in this virtual world. The beauty of this is now I can work with people in my team who are not based in South Africa. This opens up a whole new talent pool for me, which I’m very excited about.
This means that I can have an even bigger increase in the diversity of the kind of people that I work with. These are the things we’re thinking about in terms of how to set up our employees for success."

Marklives.com launched in 2012 as a journalism-driven alternative to existing advertising and marketing trade media in South Africa. It actively invests in journalism and good old-fashioned journalistic systems and processes, including editing, subbing and fact-checking. It has become known for presenting a fresh, independent and investigative view of southern Africa’s changing communication landscape, as well as for the depth of its insights section, and is the go-to source for breaking industry news.
The team at MarkLives believes in covering a broad spectrum of industry businesses, both small and large, and the full diversity of its people. As part of its commitment to telling the stories of women, we celebrate remarkable women leaders in our annual #AgencyLeaders Women of the Year poll. Until we achieve gender parity at senior management level, it will play a role in punching out the glass ceiling women shouldn’t be subjected to in the first place.
