Have you ever wondered what it’s like to work in the television industry? If so, Alex Okosi talks about his job as head of Viacom International Media Networks Africa while Evert Van Der Veer chats about running Comedy Central Africa.

From the screen to the stage: Greg Karvellas talks about the directing the Fugard Theatre’s production of Bad Jews, Richard Loring shares details about the dinner/theatre show Kaapse Stories from the Mother City, and Brent van Rensburg reflects on creating the Zip Zap Circus School. (“What an excellently written story,” the publicist said. “Thanks again for your interest in Zip Zap.”)

In business news, Tuletu Njengele shares public speaking tips from The Voice Clinic, Monique Rissen-Harrisberg analyses politicians with good (or bad) communication skills, and Lulu Makapela talks about winning the International Astronautical Federation’s Young Space Leaders award.

In food news, the annual Eat Out Mercedes-Benz Restaurant Awards hosted an incredible five-course Sunday lunch. Don’t worry if you missed it; you can still enjoy a meal at any of the top ten restaurants in South Africa.

And if you need ideas for your end-of-year holiday, you could try budget accommodation in South Africa, go west to explore Namibia’s “Moon Valley”, or sample some Gourmet Ghanaian cuisine. In the words of Adrian Landry, general manager of Accra’s Labadi Beach Hotel:

“Africa is like a diamond. The more you cut it and the more facets you show, the more it will shine.”
