Profile:
Andy Rice is probably South Africa’s best known branding and advertising expert.
 
At a time when companies and organisations are striving to understand the role that strong brands can play in driving commercial success, Andy’s keynote presentations bring an immediate clarity to the critical brand-building challenge.  Using an array of stimulating and creative case studies (not to mention the wisdom that results from years of consulting experience) Andy elegantly and entertainingly unlocks the secrets of building great brands.
 
Andy has spent his entire career in the challenging worlds of marketing and advertising, and has practiced these disciplines from both sides of the fence – as client and as supplier.  He is best known as a brand strategist, having founded South Africa’s leading strategy consultancy, Yellowwood, back in 1997.  Yellowwood’s client list includes blue chip brands from virtually every business sector, as well as a wide variety of start-ups which the Yellowwood team have helped take to market.
 
Andy graduated from Cambridge University longer ago than he likes to recall, and holds an MA degree in economics and history.  He first learned his brand management skills in a tough school, competing against the might of Unilever.  Switching to advertising, he joined Ogilvy where he became strategy director before taking the plunge into entrepreneurship when he set up Yellowwood.
 
To this day Andy is a leading figure in the South African brand communications industry, and has served as Chair of the Jury of the Apex Awards for marketing effectiveness for more than a dozen years.  In 2015 his professional standing was acknowledged by his appointment as a juror at the Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity.
 
Andy is an accomplished broadcaster, having co-hosted Talk Radio 702’s AdFeature with Andy Rice for many years.  He also joins Bruce Whitfield’s Money Show every week, dissecting different genres and techniques of advertising in order to answer the all-important question, “But Does It Work?”

Andy usually presents from his Mac laptop, connecting to the venue's own data projector either by VGA (he has the Mac connector) or HDMI cable (preferable). 
The venue needs to supply a good sound system and screen as he plays some audio-visual material.
