Preetesh Sewraj, chief executive officer of the Loeries
, says, "In the past, we hosted a Young Creatives
evening at the Loeries
to bring the community together and to hear inspirational stories from past Young Creative
winners and to meet industry leaders."
"However, with COVID-19 we have had to rethink our strategy to ensure we were still engaging with this sector of the industry, [which are] creatives under the age of 27 and in full-time work. We launched the first of five webinars last week to a full house," adds Sewraj.
Donovan Goliath, one of South Africa's comedians, and Ahmed Tilly, a renowned creative in the industry, will be hosting the webinar series.
The duo will be interviewing prominent creatives from all disciplines across Africa and the Middle East, aiming to give young people the opportunity to chat to and learn from the guests.
Guests joining the series will be announced weekly on the Loeries
social media pages.
