About the dentsu School Of Influence

Dentsu is calling for aspiring creators to become South Africa’s brightest, newest stars as it launches the Dentsu School of Influence. 

Creators have the power to shape conversations and make societal impact. And with that comes great responsibility.  

Through a custom, first-of-its-kind programme, dentsu is putting out a call for young creators who have the drive to become powerful, responsible, creative voices in influencer marketing to join the Dentsu School of Influence.  

Creators will be taken on an eight-month journey that will supercharge their careers - providing skills, tools and connections in content creation and lessons on how to work with brands, manage money and deal with the fine print. Mentored and trained by award-winning photographers, stylists, legal experts, experienced influencers and brand custodians, the creators will have access to the best in the business.
