This year’s edition of AFRIMASS saw Mr. Bright Ladzekpo, Managing Director of Ph.D. Media Ghana was honored by AFRIMASS NETWORK in partnership with CAVEMAN WATCHES for his immense support and thought leadership contribution to the conclave of industry professionals.
Raymond Kofi Smith, Founder and Managing Partner of AfriMass Network mentioned that the summit aimed to shift focus on the challenges that have come to bare as the shift takes place and the myriad opportunities that can be explored in the constant existence of business in the media advertising space.
The shift, he said translates from consumer to content consumption to the means of consumption; the public now consumes what interests them rather than what is in their interest anytime, anywhere as innovative technologies that disrupt traditional business models have come into play.
“With this inevitable change in media consumption, we are resounding the call through this year’s summit for a rethink of strategies, it is time for us to unlearn and re-learn, to be properly in sync with the new, and foster a common industry thinking and interest towards a sustainable media advertising business”, he said.
“We have all worked so hard within our own space to build this trail within our advertising space, let us, all and sundry, gathered here today; make it a point to leave this summit with a rekindled fire to blaze that trail”, he commended the participants.
