2020 Winners-1

"For me personally, the award has inspired and motivated me to such an extent that my thought processes are stimulated to continue and persevere with the above proposal.  I am inspired to go the extra mile, to continue being a trend-setter, to become an inspiration to others and to make a difference in peoples' lives."

Angie Ontong, Director Human Resources Development, Department of Trade & Industry


"Being awarded "HR Leader of the Year" by Future of HR and Topco Media reminded me of my journey to get to this point. It was another validation for me that strength, determination, perseverance and confidence is that much greater in the face of adversity and a "tough" life can in fact be, a blessing in disguise - our choices, attitude, level of resilience and perceptions all have a role to play in how the story eventually ends, not just as HR professionals, but as employees, leaders and as South Africans too."

- Dirusha Ganapathy Juta, Founder & MD, Beyond Transform
