On the 26th of February 2015 Times Media, as part of the Sunday Times sponsorship of the Design Indaba, secured the opportunity to host one of the Design Indaba’s most sought after brand extensions, the Dine Around with international advertising legend Dan Wieden.

The intimate dinner was held at the breath taking Ottimo Cibo in Bishops Court, and allowed guests the opportunity to have a once in a lifetime one-on-one moment with the American advertising executive who co-founded Widen+Kennedy and famously coined the Nike tagline “Just Do It”.

The Design Indaba Dine Around pairs speakers with hosts, allowing them to create a unique dining experience. Times Media used this occasion to forge like-minded creative friendships. Guests included local and international delegates and some of the top creatives in the country from agencies including Ogilvy and Mather, OFYT and Joe Public.

Natalie Stephan, Head of Trade Marketing for Times Media said “The annual Dine Around is one of highlights of the year. Sharing a wonderful meal with our advertising friends and hosting Dan Wieden, probably one of the most famous men in advertising, was fantastic. I think everyone left feeling inspired to push innovative and creative boundaries.”?
