As the university year started winding down before exams, I sought to gain some insight about digital and innovation from a fresh perspective. With an interview date set, I paid a visit to the Ogilvy & Mather Cape Town offices where I was warmly greeted by the perfect interview candidate for a tour around the office and an insightful chat.
Allow me to introduce you to Chris Rawlinson – a man of many successful projects, achievements and entertaining stories. Chris currently covers an executive role in Group Digital Innovations for the Ogilvy & Mather South Africa group. With a tech savvy career that started in creating smart-homes (think IoT, but more than a decade ago!), Chris got sidetracked in the wonderful world of advertising. Many successful technologically integrated advertising projects lead Chris to where he is today at Ogilvy. I was glad to get a moment of Chris’s time this week and it was a pleasure to hear about the many exciting projects that he has been involved with at Ogilvy.
