Every week The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviews a famous person about her or his attitude to money (hopes and fears, successes and failures, etc.) as part of his weekly “Make Money Mondays” feature.
This week Ray White stood in for him and interviewed Jeremy Sampson, Founder of Interbrand in Africa (and Director at Brand Finance Africa).
Sampson has been a brands expert for more than four decades.
8ta, Distell, Wi-Fi… these are just some of the brands and trademarks Interbrand Sampson de Villiers, the company he founded, helped to create.
He was also “guilty”, back in 1996, for making the Springbok emblem jump from left to right, instead of the other way around, as it has done since its creation in 1908.
A few years ago Sampson was featured as a “ShapeShifter” on The Money Show.
You’ll find that interview here.
