Celebri­ties, busi­ness­women and read­ers joined us for a beau­ti­ful lunch at Sum­mer Place in Sand­ton for the 2018 FAIRLADY Santam Women of the Fu­ture Awards, where we in­tro­duced the fi­nal­ists and an­nounced this year’s win­ners. We were hon­oured to part­ner with Santam as our head­line spon­sor and Issey Miyake as the event spon­sor.

Our pres­ti­gious panel of judges awarded the Woman of the Fu­ture ti­tle to Pa­tri­cia Schröder of Re­clite SA; Vere Shaba of Shaba & Ram­plin Green Build­ing So­lu­tions won the Ris­ing Star ti­tle, and Lindiwe Mat­lali of African Teen Geeks snagged the first-ever So­cial En­tre­pre­neur Award.

Each win­ner re­ceived a cash prize, a men­tor­ing ses­sion with one of the judges, a me­dia train­ing ses­sion, an Issey Miyake fra­grance ham­per from our event spon­sor and prizes from IMM Grad­u­ate School, Michel Her­be­lin, Sam­sonite, Jekyll & Hide and Cross pens.
