Men's Health Best Man recognises South Africa's great achievers - the men who make us proud and who shape our country. These are men who've gone beyond everyday expectations to achieve greatness in their field of expertise. Leaders in six categories were honoured at the annual Men's Health Best Man leadership event on Thursday, 7 June 2007, which was held for the first time in Johannesburg.
Comments Men's Health editor Andy Ellis: "The point of this leadership programme is to recognise the men who are making a real contribution to our society. We aim to highlight the efforts of South Africa's true best men, making this award an important social barometer reflecting the male achievers in our society."
Now in it's fourth year, Best Man recognises those who are successful in their field and are an inspiration to our readers. Award categories are: Sport; business; science and technology; arts and culture; public service and media.
Finalists were selected following a public call for nominations, direction from a panel of specialists in the respective categories and finalists from previous years, with readers influencing the ultimate selection of finalists. Winners were selected by the readers of Men's Health via the website and the magazine.
Winners were announced at the Sandton Sun in Johannesburg where guests were entertained by music acts with David Kau playing host MC. Supporting the Men's Health Best Man programme are Ford, Breitling, FNB and Lab Series.
