Grant’s Whisky, together with Creative Nestlings have travelled across South Africa as part of the #IOU #StandTogether campaign to thank 15 friends that have contributed significantly to the success of Creative Nestlings by acknowledging each one in a video series has been shared publicly. These 15 phenomenal individuals who are like family to Creative Nestlings have supported, inspired and guided the Creative Nestlings team, and without them the NEST would not have made it in the creative industry.
“Throughout our creative journey, we have met many extraordinary people that have helped us along the way – friends, family, colleagues and strangers. We seldom get a chance to thank them properly, let alone acknowledge them publicly so we’ve decided to share a bottle of Grant’s Whiskey with them which they can later share with their friends,” comments Dillion S. Phiri, Founder and Creative Director of Creative Nestlings.
On Saturday, 7 November 2015, Creative Nestlings hosted their second #ConversationsOnCreativity for 2015 at 6 Spin Street, Cape Town. They launched the #IOU Video Series with Grant’s Whisky at the much-anticipated event and the afternoon was filled with dialogue, information sharing and entertainment.
