TOP PERFORMING COMPANIES SOUTH AFRICA
Visionary top companies in South Africa and government departments seek to partner with empowered, high performance companies. These partnerships result in an exchange of only the best products and services, most competitive prices and highest levels of service efficiency. Such relationships raise the corporate performance bar higher and uplift the economy as a whole, but they begin here: in the pages of South Africa’s Top Performing Companies.
The Top Performing Companies research team spends a full year ensuring that only genuine corporate leaders are profiled, based on a comprehensive survey across thousands of top companies. This sets the benchmark for measuring actual corporate performance.
The readership includes, but is not limited to premiers, CEOs, CFOs, industry analysts and commentators, senior executives of the DTI, the BMF, the Government Leadership Academy, business schools, representatives of the Presidency and embassies, and many others who are interested in top performance.
Topco Media, the top performing company behind Top Performing Companies, was established in 1996 and has published over 30 major annual B2B publications. Topco Media has mounted 33 national conferences attracting thousands of delegates, and 14 national business award programmes, including the Top Women Awards and the Metropolitan Oliver Empowerment Awards, as well as the prestigious National Business Awards – probably South Africa’s premier awards programme.
