Heard it through the Grapevine ... Brandon Ryan, Ben Overmeyer & Mncedisi Mpofu

How do you take your brand to the people? How do you use different media platforms to reach your audience? How do you help build a sustainable world in media? You get young, dynamic and energetic  media enthusiasts together and draw on their wisdoms, of course!

Brandon Ryan from LovePartySA shares his views on sustainability ("Eat an organic pizza", "Turn your tap off"), the industry and how they go about reaching target markets for specific campaigns. He feels it is important to see a better world ahead and that it only takes a small thing to change something: "You can't be angry at a party!"
