Our group Chairman, Nunu Ntshingila received a Lifetime Achievement Award at the 10th Annual AdReview Awards a few weeks ago. Tony Koenderman, in his announcement speech, said “Nunu had taken over the largest communications group in the country and made it even stronger, earning the love and respect of her colleagues and competitors along the way.”
What makes Nunu’s journey even more incredible is that she started off her career as a trainee account executive at Ogilvy – her first job was reading letters from Omo users. Here’s a great interview with Nunu, chatting about how she “fell” into advertising and the changes in the industry that she’s helped bring about. Thanks to Jenny Cwrys Williams and Talk Radio 702 for the interview.
