2017 Winners

FAIRLADY and Santam were proud to announce the 2017 Woman of the Future and Rising Star awards at an elegant, exclusive luncheon at the gorgeous and stately Summer Place in Johannesburg.

Tiffini Wissing Hein of Old School Cool was named the 2017 FAIRLADY Woman of the Future while Anele Mkuzo-Magape of the African Entrepreneurship Initiative picked up the 2017 FAIRLADY Rising Star award.

These two smart and inspiring women were selected from a shortlist of remarkable South African female entrepreneurs.

Our prestigious panel of judges included Santam head of people and transformation, Jeanett Modise; advocate Thuli Madonsela; businesswoman and MC Jo-Ann Strauss; jeweller Kirsten Goss; and FAIRLADY editor Suzy Brokensha.

Also there to celebrate the success of these extraordinary women were top SA businesswomen, celebrities, finalists, selected readers and other VIP guests, who all networked, exchanged ideas and thoroughly enjoyed the fun-filled and emotional afternoon.

Our special thanks go to Santam, our partner since we first launched the awards in 2015. We’re also grateful to our event sponsors, Miladys and Sisley, and to the prize sponsors, GetSmarter, Michel Herbelin, Delsey and Makro, for spoiling the winners with wonderful prizes and opportunities.

To the winners and finalists, thank you for inspiring other women (you are amazing!) and for making such a difference to the South African economy, and to all of us!
