How to connect with township youth through meeting their ‘needs states’.

With 50% of the South African population comprising under 24s, it remains glaringly clear that no brand can afford to alienate the youth market. South Africa remains one of the most unequal societies in the world, and with a Gini Coefficient of 0.63%, youth remain the poorest of the poor.

In this dialogue, Chinkanda will share insights on the illusive youth market, through evaluating ways in which to best engage them. In this thought leadership talk that illuminates the importance of connecting to township youth, Chinkanda will consolidate three key youth connectors, which he will unpack into an integrated youth communication solution.
