Topco Media


As South Africa’s leader in business research, recognition and networking, Topco Media has helped over 2 500 organisations during its 21 years – including multinationals like Microsoft, McDonalds, Mercedes-Benz and Coca Cola.

We have worked with government departments including the GCIS, DTI, DIRCO and DEA; with agencies such as Brand SA, BBC and BUSA and with all of the major Public Entities including, in recent times, the Richards Bay and Coega IDZs.

Among the many JSE-listed companies with ties to Topco are Standard Bank, PPC and Anglo American.

The 10 000 organisations we research each year trust us to use quantitative and qualitative data to objectively grant external accreditation to the best-managed and best-performing companies in South Africa; to its BEE and gender parity leaders; to implementers of national development and to HR/tech innovators.

This external accreditation carries significant weight in the market. From my own 21 years at Topco, I can give you several examples of how it has helped these organisations.

Through the Top Empowerment platform Microsoft, for example, entrenched its image as a multinational demonstrably committed to BEE in South Africa. Through listing in Topco’s Top 300 Companies of the Western Cape publication, many years ago, Old Mutual secured a host of new business clients. There are many more such case studies within the huge bank of data we have aggregated on South Africa’s private and public sector.
