Ireland Davenport Agency reboots

Posted by radio On September - 7 - 2017 ADD COMMENTS

Communications agency Ireland Davenport has launched into an exciting new phase as a fully representative, truly South African agency.

 

The fresh and ready Ireland Davenport has already secured blue-ribbon clients like Standard Bank (PBBSA division), Primedia and EWN, leveraging strong client relationships and relevant creative skills to produce authentically South African campaigns. The new clients join established ID clients Isuzu, Avis, Bliss Brands and Plascon.

 

As a young agency, ID has been recognised for its revolutionary impact in the industry since it commenced operations. ID has also long been known for visionary management and an entrepreneurial spirit, having snared the AdFocus 2014 Agency Leader of the Year award.

 

Ireland Davenport has recently been rated as a Level 1 BEE, 51% Black owned QSE, and the current executive management comprises Qingqile “WingWing” Mdlulwa as executive creative director, Brenda Khumalo, nee Mtshali, as executive client service director and Sharon Bergmann as chief financial officer. Mosidi Seretlo serves as non-executive chairman, and co-founder John Davenport stays on as an executive director.

 

Executive client services director Brenda Khumalo recently returned to Ireland Davenport, bringing a proven, 12-year industry track record with clients like Edcon and Vodacom, and a network of contacts across the industry.

 

Non-executive chairperson Mosidi Seretlo has worked in management at leading SA companies for more than 26 years. She started her career at Unilever, followed by a stint at SAB, where she was general manager of Hansa Pilsner. She joined Vodacom in 2013 as executive head of brand, then served as brand director until 2016. She now owns her own consulting company, in addition to her non-executive chairperson role.

 

Mdlulwa joins Ireland Davenport as a 21-year industry veteran, with his credentials as a creative innovator and a driver of change almost unmatched in South Africa.

“When the Ireland Davenport opportunity came, I was immediately interested,” he says. “I was thrilled to see the new dynamic taking shape and the commitment to real transformation. “

 

Brenda Khumalo hustled her way into the advertising industry in Durban, making contacts and soaking up knowledge as she became one of the most respected account directors in the game.

 

“I am greatly thankful for all the training and mentorship I received when I was starting out,” says Brenda. “This is why today ID puts such value on mentoring to drive the next phase of our industry development.”

“Transformation for us means identifying future leaders in the staff we hire, with preference for black females. We groom and incentivise them. People who believe in you sometimes see things you don’t see in yourself. That drives people’s confidence, and confidence drives the work.”

 

Soweto-raised Mdlulwa has been a mainstay of the creative industry and a trailblazer for black talent since his early work on Vodacom’s Yebo Gogo campaign. He also worked on Eskom’s Operation Khanyisa, recognised by the World Economic Forum as an inspirational social-issue campaign.

 

His other iconic campaigns have included Chicken Licken, True Love magazine and Toyota, en route to spells running his own agencies, being appointed chairman of the Loerie Awards, serving as a Cannes jury member and being D&AD jury foreman. Mdlulwa is also a past Financial Mail Adfocus New Broom award winner.

 

“Creating the quintessential South African agency starts here, now, at Ireland Davenport,” says Mdlulwa.

 

“I’m tired of defending advertising for issues like the stereotypical depiction of black people in ads. In most cases, we as black advertising professionals haven’t had the real power to change that.”

 

Now, as an empowered management team, Khumalo and Mdlulwa are able to craft culturally relevant campaigns, partnering with their clients and speaking truth to power in creating authentic campaigns that really matter to audiences.

“We as an industry have not even begun to scratch the surface of the magic that South African culture can give us,” says Mdlulwa.

 

“It’s not always easy to challenge the brief,” says Khumalo. “But in the end, clients appreciate it. It’s real talk, but that’s what they want from us – real, authentic, targeted work.

“We have great client relationships,” says Khumalo, recounting how some clients drop by the agency unannounced. “We had a client in here hot-desking the other day. That’s when you know you’ve got a good thing going!”

 

“This new phase feels amazing,” says Mdlulwa. “The agency is packed with young, energetic people who walk the talk.”

 

Ireland Davenport is refreshed, transformed and open for business, an authentic, relevant agency that’s in touch with the market, with the creative chops and the client-service experience to do brands justice.

The Los Angeles based DISCOP organisation is excited to announce a new programme, dubbed DISCORE, that will bring the world of music production closer to the African editions of the DISCOP Film, Television, Digital Content Markets.

 

With the inaugural event to kick off at Côte d’Ivoire during the next Abidjan edition of DISCOP (29|31 May 2018), DISCORE will be co-organised with Nairobi-based PHAT! Music & Entertainment – a celebrated authority on African music since 1999, under its social enterprise arm, ONGEA! Africa.

 

DISCORE will be launched at DISCOP Johannesburg, taking place from 25th – 27th October 2017, at the Sandton Convention Centre.

 

Designed as a knowledge-transfer and matchmaking programme, DISCORE will specifically target African-based creative, production, and technical experts from within the expanding Pan-African music industry.

 

These African music producers and experts will be offered the unique opportunity to learn from the pros, as well as to build relationships with international music supervisors and film, television & digital content producers seeking original songs and scores that can accompany entertainment content destined for global audiences.

 

Given the ever-increasing range and diversity of audiences, the selection of music for content is playing an increasingly decisive and important role in establishing atmosphere, tone, and even the appeal of original content.

 

“The conflation of the music, film, television & digital content industries continues at a rapid pace as storytelling recipes change to adapt to the commercial imperatives of an increasing global market for diversified content”, explains Patrick Zuchowicki, General Manager of DISCOP.

 

Founding Director of ONGEA! Africa – Mike Strano, concurs: “It is clear that within this global context, the time is right for African music creators and producers to stake their claim, as the demand for more original scores, and particularly for African sounds, is rising fast.”

 

This increased appetite for African sounds is demonstrated by the growing number of collaborations with African artists hitting the global airwaves.  From the likes of Britain’s Ed Sheeran collaborating with Ghanaians Fuse ODG and KillBeatz on “Bibia Be Ye Ye” that has over 37 million views on YouTube, the 2016 Collaboration between the highly acclaimed Canadian Hip-Hop sensation Drake and Nigeria’s Wizkid on “One Dance” that became one of the top selling songs globally to the 2017 hit from Tanzanian artist Diamond Platnumz and American RnB Superstar Ne-Yo, “Marry You,” African artists and sounds are reaching new heights.

 

Other developments such as content streaming are also adding to this demand, according to the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) 2017 report, the global music market grew by 5.9% in 2016, with streaming as the clear driver of this growth due to a 60% increase in revenue. Interestingly, there was a 334% growth of streaming in Africa, driven by increased smartphone penetration on the continent and forward-thinking partnerships between tech companies and music corporates.

 

The IFPI further reported that the global music synchronisation market grew by 7% in 2015, and by another 2.8% in 2016. Midem 2016 even featured a panel exclusively dedicated to African music, entitled: Tapping into Africa – an Emerging Music Sector, that echoed the sentiment that there is a growing global demand for African music and its licensing.

 

The time, therefore, is now for DISCORE – a unique platform that will bring together all relevant players in the industry for a focused B2B meeting and business environment.

 

DISCORE will be an interactive experience, bridging the worlds of music and filmed content, to:

  • Give creative, production and technical experts in Africa’s music industry a unique chance to break into the global content production market, while learning from the world’s most visionary entrepreneurs.
  • Provide key music supervisors, from the global film, television, digital content and advertising industries, unparalleled access to creative and production talent in Africa, with a proven aptitude to captivate the ears of multi-cultural audiences.

 

From 2018, all DISCOP African markets will include a full-day DISCORE programme,that will provide participants with valuable, actionable information and tools, along with unparalleled access to networking and meetings.

 

The proposed programme will include:

  1. Knowledge-transfer:Designed expressly for composers, music publishers, independent producers, agents and lawyers, as well as for recording, sound-mixing and post-production studios aspiring to play a role in the fast-evolving, cross-border film, television, digital content and advertising global ecosystem.
  2. Sync Connect: Enabling leading composers and publishers from Africa to pitch their works to established international music supervisors working on the production of film, television, digital content and advertising.
  3. Matchmaking:Providing qualified creative, production and technical talent access to key music supervisors, through scheduled meetings.

 

In order to ensure a continued momentum, and to bridge strategic Regions of Africa, DISCORE will take place three times in 2018 and four times a year at the four African DISCOP markets from 2019: Nigeria (March), Abidjan (May), Zanzibar (July), and South Africa (October).

“I love the ability to put all music together to a point where you can manipulate a party and get it going.

It’s not a shock, people will be grooving and want to know more about your music,” she explains

 

Anané would go on to accomplish a great number of feats in her career so far. These include singing the opening song “One Dream” at Super Bowl XLI, being personally invited by Cirque du Soleil to partake and performing at the President Obama’s Ambassadors Ball.

 

She is also extremely busy managing her music labels, Nulu Music and Nulu Electronic, which already boasts an impressive 50 album releases and is signing artists from all parts of Africa, the USA, and Europe. Her labels are extremely well regarded for bringing the afro and electronic sound to a wide audience.
