The BBQ Awards is proud to announce that the Big Time Strategic Group has been confirmed as the Platinum sponsor for this year’s BBQ Awards. There is a particular cause for celebration this year, as the Awards celebrate their 15th anniversary, a landmark that further highlights the status of the BBQ Awards as the country’s most prestigious and longest-running business award ceremony recognising and celebrating the champions of business transformation.
The Awards will once again be hosted in style at Emperors Palace in Ekurhuleni, Gauteng, although, as Platinum sponsor, the Big Time Strategic Group have the naming rights to the evening’s premier award (the Platinum Award), which their CEO and founder, Justice Maphosa, will present on the evening.
Mr Maphosa will also have the honour of making the keynote address before handing over to Minister Jeff Radebe, who will provide the official welcome address to the Awards evening. The evening’s entertainment includes South African stand-up comedian, actor, director and all-round entertainer Kagiso Lediga, who is taking up the role of programme director. Guests will be treated to world-class entertainers such as Loyiso Bala and Black Ivory, and will also be spoiled with a four-course meal fit for royalty. This year’s BBQ Awards will also be broadcast live online.
“Big Time Strategic Group will be a tremendous ambassador as Platinum sponsor for the BBQ Awards,” explains Beverley Stone, Event Organizer of the BBQ Awards 2016. “They are composed of wholly-owned Black South African companies with business interests in the ICT sector.”
Founded in 2000, the group’s flagship, Computer Ink and Media Solutions, grew from a backyard business into the sizeable enterprise it is today through the vision, innovation, and commitment of its founder, Mr Maphosa.
“The Awards consists of 13 categories open to individuals, black-owned and empowered companies and organisations in South Africa that include Best Established SMME, Outstanding Woman in Business, as well as Transformation Champion and Community Builder of the Year,” adds Stone.
There are still a limited number of seats available for the 15th hosting of the BBQ Awards.
