Some history

A-Z coverReg Rumney and Janet Wilhelm were both full-time journalists when Penguin Books and the Mail & Guardian published their “Movers & Shakers, An A-Z of South African Business People” in 1999. The book looked at the personalities that were shaping South African business, and through that at the business scene itself.

This website was originally designed to update the book, and keep track of the comings and goings of top South African Business People until the next edition of the A-Z. We have since moved on to other, exciting fields, though we are still involved in media. While we don’t write much about South Africa’s newsmakers any more we’re more in tune with the news behind the news, especially business, finance and economics, than ever. This website will tell you what we do and what we’ve been doing as editors, writers, teachers and media strategists.
