January 2017: 9 stories in 6 publications

It’s a new year and for many people that means getting back to work. In business news, Gary Joseph of the South African Supplier Diversity Council is on a mission to transform corporate supply chains. And in music news, the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra and the Cape Town Concert Series are starting 2017 on a high note with a range of repertoire.

If you’re still on holiday, why not visit one of the top Airbnbs in South Africa, get immersed in local culture with an authentic travel experience from Tour2.0, or enjoy one of the six luxury lifestyle trends for 2017? Speaking of the finer things, get ready to celebrate International Brandy Alexander Day, savour one of the most memorable meals around the world, or feast on the bounty of Bushmans Kloof.
