I was at the Mail & Guardian Top 200 South Africans
launch last week. I was there because I was fortunate enough to make the list in this year’s business category. This, however, is not about me; it’s about the incredible people I met that day. I mean, what else could I ask for? Two hundred, young, bright minds in one place.

CANNES, FRANCE: We are coming to the end of another Cannes. The big parties with small pieces of food. The champagne being consumed by ridiculously good-looking people.

The activities kick off on Heritage Day with a Mayoral Welcome for the VIEs [Very Inflated Egos] at 5.30pm, the customary Industry Battle of the bands at 7.30pm and the 10.30pm Chairman's Party with none other than DJ and chairman of the Loerie Awards, Festus Masekwameng in the mix. The catch is this - with two nights of parties to go, you don't want to overdo it at this one. Yeah right.
