DESTINY MAN CELEBRATES POWERHOUSE MEN & WOMEN THIS AUGUST
“In a country of so many competing interests and priorities, it is easy to rest on our laurels and forget that a lot still has to be done in order to ensure that little girls and women are allowed to thrive ” – DESTINY MAN Editor, Thabiso “TT” Tema
This August, DESTINY MAN plays its part in celebrating women by profiling the powerhouse executive assistants (EA’s) supporting the powerhouse CIO, CE and CEO’s. In a first of its kind, this Powerhouse feature focuses on women such as Portia Mtsweni, Verna Samson and Michele Stuurman who are the EA’s at Airports Company South Africa (ACSA), Standard Bank and Carol Boyes define what it means to be in roles that drive efficiency and results. In Analyse This and Exit Interview, women who are making a name for themselves in male-dominated industries such as politics and football are profiled.
Our cover story features media dynamo Bob van Dijk, CEO of the trillion-rand titan Naspers. It is not everyday that people are hand-picked to lead organisations by the likes of Koos Bekker, so this promises to be a read worth engaging with. In Man Fulfilling His Destiny, we feature another man unlike others – Kutlwano Masote – the groundbreaking musician and conductor who celebrates 10 years in the classical music industry and is renowned for the concerts him and his wife organize, such as the exclusive Pretty Yende concert held in April 2016. The Entrepreneur Report sponsored by IDC, will give you all the tools and tips to help you create your own success as a leader such as van Dijk and Masote.
