Kerrie Finch, Founder, FinchFactor, Amsterdam & London (Speaker at the brand magic summit 2018)
"I was impressed by the full auditorium for every speaker session and the quality of engagement. The audience proved to be eager to learn. The festival organisers are extremely professional and detail oriented. This is a quality experience for both speakers and attendees alike. From welcome committee and general support to dinners and accommodation, I've never been treated better. It was a pleasure to be involved and I'd return in a heartbeat."
Fredrik Härén, The Global Conference Speaker on Business Creativity, Change, and Global Mindset, Singapore (Speaker at the brand magic summit 2017)
"I have been invited to speak in 67 countries on 6 continents and I can honestly say that speaking at Brand Magic Summit was one of my highlights in my speaking career. Mauritius is such a rare place on Earth - a place where people from different cultures, backgrounds, and ethnicity live together in harmony creating such a positive human experience. The Brand Magic Summit had a profound impact of me showing what happens when positive, creative people come together."
Alvin Teoh, Executive Creative Director, Naga DDB, Malaysia (Speaker at the brand magic summit 2015)
"Brand Magic Summit 2015 was a great experience of sharing and learning and meeting like-minded people who are hungry and restless to be better marketeers, brand-builders and storytellers. It was a great personal experience for me also because I got to share the stage with people who inspired me too and met people who felt like long-lost friends. For that reason, I am grateful."
Colvyn Harris, Founder Harris-Mint, India/Former JWT South Asia CEO (Speaker at the Brand Magic Summit 2017)
"I have been fortunate and privileged to be a Speaker at the Brand Magic Summit 2017. My experience to say the least has been magical - from the most impressive line-up of globally acclaimed and recognised speakers, to the curation of topics and content - for anyone in branding and marketing with responsibility for their brands and businesses, this Summit will recharge you and your knowledge. What's current, what's relevant and being ahead of changing trends, will help you develop a comprehensive and effective plan to make you a better professional and help your career as you use the knowledge in your respective companies. I wish The Brand Magic Summit even more success in the future. Best wishes."
Sumit Roy, Founder Director, Univbrands, India (Speaker at the Brand Magic Summit 2015)
"As if there is not enough that's magical about Mauritius, in 2015, I was privileged to be part of the first Brand Magic Summit held there. I think of that as one of the better organized meets I have attended across the world. Three reasons make that so. Wonderful guest speakers, who are now friends. Wonderful hosts, who are now friends. Wonderful attendees, many of whom stay in touch. May the tribe of brand-builders in Mauritius grow."
Philip Thomas, Chief Executive Officer and President, Ascential Events / Chairman, Cannes Lions (Speaker at the Brand Magic Summit 2016)
"I was fortunate enough to be asked to attend and speak at the Brand Magic summit; it’s a fantastic initiative aimed at raising the bar for creativity in the country, executed to a world-class standard. Even the smallest country, as we have seen many times at Cannes lions, can excel on a global level, but only if there are efforts like the Summit to help people learn, network and be inspired. I wish them all the best for the future growth of the event."
Ravid Kuperberg, Partner, Mindscapes, Israel (Speaker at the Brand Magic Summit 2018)
"The experience at the Brand Magic Summit was exactly as the name suggests – magical and proficient. A magical venue in a magical place with magical people excited about learning and experiencing valuable knowledge. I personally made a variety of new friends within the event and cast of talented speakers. Found myself staying at the event after my lecture to hear further interesting lectures, rather than leaving early to explore the island and beaches of Mauritius (as I originally planned)…"
Jonathan Tavss, Co-Founder & Director, Kaleidoko, UK and USA (Speaker at the Brand Magic Summit 2018)
"Before we even started our travels to Mauritius for Brand Magic Summit 2018, we could feel the warm hospitality and phenomenal attention to detail that made our ultimate experience easy and productive. While the event was produced beautifully by Mind Initiatives and everything was top-notch, the opportunity for true interaction amongst our hosts and fellow speakers - in ways not normally afforded at conferences - made this one truly stand out. The rich beauty of the island and the smooth tempo of the schedule allowed for professional and personal relationships to be built that will absolutely last forever."
Carla Enslin, National Academic Navigator, Vega School of Brand Leadership, South Africa (Speaker at the Brand Magic Summit 2016)
"A truly enriching experience. The points of view were diverse and thought provoking. I met individuals who are genuinely passionate about their fields and dedicated to making a purposeful difference through their brands and businesses."
Piers Schmidt, Founder, Luxury Branding, UK (Speaker at the Brand Magic Summit 2015)
"I was delighted to be invited to participate as a speaker in the inaugural Brand Magic Summit in Mauritius back in 2015. Having been involved in a number of high profile branding exercises across industries in Mauritius, this was a fantastic opportunity to support this bold new platform that Mind Initiatives was establishing by sharing my experience as an international practitioner with their local audience. Both the attendance and the level of engagement from the delegates was impressive, not least for a first event and I was hosted magnificently by the Mind Initiatives team.
I can recommend the Brand Magic Summit to speakers, sponsors and most importantly to the senior executives, whether from marketing or other departments, of regional enterprises with hesitation.
I look forward to watching this successful annual event continue going from strength to strength."
Annicia Manyaapelo, Founder and Creative Director, Nich Luxury Africa and Executive Business Director, FCB Africa, South Africa (Speaker at the Brand Magic Summit 2017)
"I got the opportunity to be one of the International Speakers at Brand Summit 2017 in Mauritius at the invitation of Ravin Lama, representing my country South Africa. And I must say, what an experience it's been! The platform gave me the opportunity to have a voice and share my passion for brand Made in Africa. The presentation was well received and opened doors for me back home as I was subsequently invited to more talks because of it.
Its been an honour to be part of the global speakers network that Mind Initiatives work with, I've made lifelong friends and look forward to doing more work with the team. The conferences are so well organised and always give great insights plus relevance to the ever changing world of branding.
A big congratulations for many more successful Brand Summits in Mauritius and beyond."
