This ultimately gives us the space to develop ideas without limits!”

“This win showcases the success of our operating model, collaborative drive as well as our ability to produce work on an international level. A testament to this is the bronze award we received for the Best use of “The Operating Model” at the Dentsu Aegis Network 2014 Global Innovation Awards, for the Guinness Made of Black campaign. The Loeries win and having Carat SA being credited at the Cannes Lions Festival, in the film category for the Made of Black Campaign speaks to the world-class services that we offer our clients,” said Dawn Rowlands, CEO Dentsu Aegis Network Sub Saharan Africa.
