Queen of talk celebrated


Felicia Mabuza-Suttle rose to prominence as the first widely successful talk show host in the democratic South Africa, the “Rainbow Nation”. She is also considered to have single-handedly launched the motivational speaking as a fixture in South African culture through her TV show. 


Mabuza-Suttle was voted as the 70th greatest South African of all time in an informal public poll in the TV show Great South Africans.


The entrepreneur and business woman returns to South Africa to be honoured at the Gauteng High Impact Leadership Summit 2018 in her honour. The same event last year honoured entrepreneur extraordinaire, Dr Richard Maponya, in a similar fashion.

This summit, focused on entrepreneurship in South Africa, Africa and beyond will include sessions conducted by noteworthy young, seasoned and women entrepreneurs.
