KZN Top Business

Through the KZN Top Business web site, hard copy book, multimedia interactive CD-Rom as well as the use of the video, social media, electronic media, the Top Business Awards and events, KZN Top Business Portfolio has taken the lead in marketing the province of KwaZulu-Natal to both local and international stakeholders. The various communication tools utilised ensure that an integrated and dynamic approach to marketing and branding is optimised. These avenues are all designed to satisfy the demand for easy-to-use business and investment vehicles. We have consistently branded KwaZulu-Natal as being associated with success. In addition we have provided a platform for local businesses, municipalities and the KZN government to be profiled and promoted in a holistic and comprehensive manner.   The high profile of our work is evident as in addition to our database of private companies, district municipalities and government departments, the KZN Top Business book and the CD-Rom’s are distributed by the Office of the Premier KwaZulu-Natal as well as Trade and Investment KwaZulu-Natal. The books and CD-ROMs are distributed at local and overseas trade shows, to visiting foreign delegations, and other local and national business events.        

FNB Top Business Awards

The annual KZN Top Business Portfolio Awards sponsored by FNB is now in its sixth year and continues to be highly successful. We believe that we need to communicate the importance of striving for success in South Africa, through transformation and innovation. Traditionally, business awards are about financial returns, increased sales or market share. However the FNB KZN Top Business Portfolio Awards acknowledge business success, innovation and ethical practice. In particular, the awards recognise companies and organisations that integrate responsible business practice into their mainstream operations, which result in a positive impact in the marketplace, environment, community and workplace, creating a better life for all in KZN.
