2024 Collection of Business Leaders’ Stories

KZN Top Business is proud to be publishing a leaders’ portfolio in 2024.

Much material has been researched and written about the topic of being a good leader. As has been said by Tony Robbins, “The importance of leadership lies in the ability to get things done. Leadership allows you to communicate a clear vision and then unite your team around that vision. Companies with great leaders are creative, innovative and agile. They also have positive company cultures with a sense of purpose and passion.”

More now than ever our province of KwaZulu-Natal needs inspirational people around us to face the many challenges we have. And we really need people to be focused on the right things for the right reasons.

Through the KZN Top Business Leaders’ Portfolio we are proud to recognise some of the outstanding individuals in the province who do have the ability to inspire and who are making things happen for the good of their business entities and further afield.

Some of the leaders who are participating include:
• Ashley Bell, Bell Equipment
• Michael Keats, Goscor
• Pat Moodley, Industrial Development Corporation
• Aurelia Alberts, Innovate Durban
• Jay Patel, Royal Tyres
• Rob Kelso, SA Homeloans
• Isaac Mbatha, Sky Tents
• Lubin Ozoux, Sumitomo Rubber South Africa
• Jonathan Naidoo, SmartXchange
• Pat Symcox, RE/MAX Coast and Country
• Jennifer Reddy, Morar Incorporated
• Shamla Pather, Shamla Pather Attorneys
• Frikkie Brooks, Brooks Facilitation Services

The Top Business team is interviewing each leader online and delving a little into their lives, purpose and achievements. The participants are also being asked to share some of the insights that they have gained on their journeys, which is invaluable knowledge to those following in their paths.

An edited version of these interviews can be found online.

The content of the interview will be used to create a written profile which will be featured in an old fashioned hard-covered coffee table book. This book will be an absolute classic with historical value; a must have publication. The written profiles will also be uploaded to our website and shared on social media.
