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.
