KFC's mashups with Walkers and Pizza Hut + building your network despite lockdown

Feb 18, 10:35 AM

Creative strategists and authors Niran Vinod and Damola Timeyin discuss how to build personal and corporate brands in the age of social distancing.

Omar and Brittaney take a closer look at two KFC brand collaborations that launched within days of each other - Walkers (in which Gary Lineker imagines himself as Colonel Sanders) and Pizza Hut. What's KFC up to and do all brands win equally when marketing together?

Then Brittaney chats to Niran Vinod and Damola Timeyin, the creative strategists and authors that have released the marketing guide How to Build It under Stormy’s publishing imprint #Merky Books. They get into how people starting out in advertising can build their network despite social distancing and how brands can market with purpose authentically.
