What Is Heavy Chef All About?

As an initiative of digital marketing agency World Wide Creative, the Heavy Chef project is a platform for practical learning – where South Africa’s digital community collaborates, shares ideas and discusses the latest web marketing news. The name comes from the expression “Never trust a skinny chef” and our aim to learn from Heavy Chefs – in other words, those rare folk who eat their own food, walk the talk and practice what they preach.

Heavy Chef is sponsored by: World Wide Creative, Microsoft SA , Backsberg Wines, Channel Mobile and Uber.
