June 2015: 18 stories in 11 publications

Winter is coming for those of us down south. Why not get cosy in front of the fireplace with afternoon tea in Stellenbosch, especially with the yummy pastries at Majeka House? You could also wine and dine at Haute Cabrière or savour the authentic Spanish cuisine at VickyCristina’s in Camps Bay.

Yes, there are some amazing restaurants in the Western Cape, which makes sense when you have top chefs like Margot Janse and Luke Dale-Roberts, both of whom share what it means to be included in the list of 100 best restaurants in the world. So why not treat yourself to a special meal? If it’s at a StreetSmart SA eatery, you’ll be doing something good for other people too.

In entertainment news, rock group Gangs of Ballet chats about overcoming obstacles in their musical journey while Maylene Chenjerayi prepares to dance at the National Arts Festival early next month. Richard Griffin also has details about “The Celebration”, a spectacular new show in honour of Madame Zingara turning 15 while the Fleur du Cap Theatre Awards celebrates its 50th year.

Further afield, free diver and conservationist Hanli Prinsloo talks about her love for the sea while Alan Leibman shares his experience as CEO of Kerzner International in Dubai. And in business news, Nicola Kleyn (Dean of the Gordon Institute of Business Science) and Piet Naudé (Director of Stellenbosch Business School) discuss the rise of African MBAs. As the authors of The Wealthy Freelancer point out:

“There’s something about being able to decide what you work on, whom you work with, where you go, and how you’ll get there that will bring out the best in you.” Don’t settle for anything less.
