Top Media and Communications has announced the finalists for the 16th annual National Business Awards. Finalists will compete against one another for the winner’s trophy, awarded at Emperors Palace on 15 November 2018.

For the past 16 years, South Africa’s National Business Awards has recognised outstanding achievements by companies in a host of focus areas, including sustainability, customer focus, tech innovation and fast growth. With its rigorous research and criteria, the accolade is recognised as a benchmark for business excellence.

Among the Awards’ alumni are hundreds of individual business champions who have taken home the trophy for Business Leader of the Year, Entrepreneur of the Year or Top Young Executive.

“We are tremendously excited by the entries we received at the National Business Awards this year. For the first time, we have added sector-specific categories, which has meant we are able to celebrate the growth leaders across the South African economy.

“Helping us celebrate their successes on the night will be VIP speakers, Bonang Mohale of Business Leadership South Africa and Asha Patel of Google SA. It really promises to be a stellar event,” comments Company Director, Van Fletcher.

A flood of entries has come in from companies looking to outshine the competition and position themselves as leaders in industry. Altogether, well over 70 finalists are confirmed across 18 organisational and individual categories.
