ABOUT THE #KELLMAN20 CAMPAIGN
CliffCentral.com released its first annual #Kellman20 list, featuring a series of 20 exclusive podcast interviews at 18h00 CAT on Wednesday 27 January. Presented by CliffCentral.com daily afternoon presenter and creative director, the quirky-cool Arye Kellman, each podcast offers insight into 1 of 20 Influential Millennials To Watch In 2016 from around the world.
What do the Millennial generation have to offer the world? What philosophy do successful Millennials live by? What is the danger of measuring ones self-worth in Instagram likes? These are some of the questions addressed in 20 of the most intimate podcasts ever created on the CliffCentral.com platform.
Having already dominated social media conversations in South Africa within its first hour of launch, the #Kellman20 is set to be an annual list profiling some of the finest Millennials in the world.
“These are 20 of the most interesting, authentic and powerful conversations I’ve ever had in my life.” Kellman said about the campaign, which is an extension of his weekday afternoon drive show. “On the Cliffcentral.com platform we had the opportunity to talk about anything and everything with these remarkable young people from the current state of the world, to finding purpose in 2016, to the impact of going digital. I hope listeners enjoy listening to them as much as I had recording them.”
All 20 podcasts are available for audiences to download, stream and connect with, right here on Kellman20.CliffCentral.com.
