The W&RSETA and its Public Relations partner decided to target the broader South Africa market with this year’s awards by incorporation strategic interventions that would ensure the awards are highlighted in the mass media rather than a celebration that includes the Sector peers only. The Good Practice Awards are endorsed by the Deputy Minister of Higher Education: Mr Mduduzi Manana who is also the Awards Ambassador.
The decision to adopt the Celebrity Presenter component was not taken lightly, as each celebrity needed to represent excellence in the brand they have showcased to the South Africa and African market.
