Youth Month for this year is being commemorated under the theme “Live the Legacy: Towards a Socio-Economically Empowered Youth”. Coca-Cola Beverages South Africa(CCBSA) is passionate about the future of our youth through various programmes that seek to invest and empower our youths so they can prosper and revitalise our economy. As such we have recently launched a flagship Youth Entrepreneurship Programme – Bizniz in a Box where CCBSA together with partners such as SIOC Community Development Trust, SEFA and Thabazimbi local municipality run a competitive process to source youth who can compete for an opportunity to operate and eventually own their own spaza shop. This programme was established to make a meaningful and sustainable impact on youth unemployment through enterprise development, particularly in the communities where CCBSA operates.This will include a selection, training of youths between the ages of 18 and 35 who are looking to kick-start a new business. To introduce this concept townhall sessions were held from the 11th to the 13th of June in the Thabazimbi area where youths were encouraged to sign up to reduce the 26.9% unemployment rate (Ipeleng, Regorogile, Skierlik, Northam, Smashblock, Rooiberg and Raphuthi). Jane Rambau (CCBSA North West District Manager) present at the sessions encouraged the youths to take up this opportunity as it will give them a means of livelihood. One such hopeful who is extremely excited and hoping to join the programme is Lebogile Tsieco (38) an enterprising resident of Extension 6 in Northam who currently bakes and sells biscuits on order for her community. “This programme sounds amazing and I hope to be considered for this opportunity so my business can grow even bigger, “she said. After selection, psych assessments and an intensive bootcamp for the final shortlisted candidates will push them a step closer to owning their dream spaza shop.

STATUS SHOWS RESPECT FOR MEN OF STATUS ON FATHER’S DAY On Saturday the 16th June 2018, Status hosted a Father’s Day lunch at the Rock Diner in Fourways. Status offers a wide range of great-smelling body spray deodorants for men. The brand has been around since the 1960’s and consists of both body sprays and roll-ons. As a male focused brand, Status took it upon themselves to host some of Johannesburg’s coolest dads in an effort to support their role as men of status in their homes, careers and society. In a country where social media is constantly taking a bash at men using ‘men are trash’ statements, this brand is taking it upon itself to highlight the fact that there are still some really great men out there doing great things. As part of this event, Status had some of its consumers attending the lunch as winners of a social media competition prompting them to tell the brand what makes their father a hero giving them a chance to get to treat their dad to a Father’s Day luncheon curtsey of Status. Amongst those who attended the event were, South African thespians, Kagiso Modupe and Vuyo Ngcukana; sports personality, Kabelo Thathe – all of whom are father’s and successful men in their own fields, also sitting on the Status table were other men of Status such as, host with the most for the day, model and MC Stevel Marc and Skeem Saam actors Buhle Maseko and Gift Mokhampanyane. “We want to celebrate our consumers and ensure that they know that the brand recognises them as the people who have helped Status be what it is today. We didn’t just want celebrities at the Status table but real people who represent the essence of what it means to be a ma of status” said Zandile Nkatini, Status brand manager. Happy Father’s to the Status man! A man who walks into a room and can have a conversation with anyone in it – about anything. The kind of man everyone wants to be around because he’s got a little something that sets him apart. CLICK HERE to submit your . . .

Famously effective advertising agency GREY Johannesburg recently produced a series of television commercials for Virgin Money Insurance titled “The Unpredictables”. The ads feature a bunch of fun, quirky characters called the Unpredictables, who embody pretty much all of the issues car owners encounter, and which make insurance tricky, and certainly rather unpredictable – from incurring unexpected costs on the road, to paying for the mistakes of really bad drivers to frustrating encounters with call centre agents. The point is that you can’t always control what happens to you out there – but Virgin Money Insurance puts you in charge, giving you control over your money. “The great thing about working with a brand like Virgin is that they’re as passionate and hungry for solid creative ideas as we are,” said Fran Luckin, Chief Creative Officer at GREY Johannesburg. “We had great fun producing these and look forward to creating even better content going forward,” said Luckin.

A concerted team effort involving all parties lies behind the Demacon Ladies cycling team's domination of South African road races this year. When SA national road champion Carla Oberholzer surged over the finish line to win the 140km Kremetart event in the Soutpansberg region at the weekend, it marked the 10th road success for the team in 2018. Even though they have a well-balanced outfit, team captain Lynette Burger described their 10 wins from 10 one-day races as "amazing". "We knew we had a strong team, with climbers and sprinters for all types of routes, but these efforts exceeded our expectations," she said. "There is always very good competition and you almost sometimes wonder, ‘when are we going to lose?', but we go into every race with a positive mindset. "We knew we could have a good year, but this is great on a number of levels. "The success helps to keep our sponsors happy and it also means we have set the benchmark, which keeps the pressure on us to maintain a high standard." Playing a significant role is the partnership with HEAD Bikes SA, who have come on board as technical sponsor. The company distributes the world-renowned HEAD bicycle in South Africa and Burger said this had contributed to their success. "Carla has been on her bike for a couple of months and she loves it - the results speak for themselves," said Burger. "The rest of the team received their bikes at the end of April and we are very happy. "It helps our team to look like a unit, making a statement that we are there for business. HEAD Bikes SA has given us a lot of support on and off the bikes." Besides the HEAD Bike SA arrangement, the team have concluded a deal with Positive Sports Solutions to be supplied with Gipiemme wheels this year. The SA company is the sole distributor of the highly-rated Italian brand in southern Africa. "We have each received a set of C32 carbon tubby clincher wheels, which is fantastic," she said.
