"Maharaj made us proud as she was selected as the Top two and Runner-Up of this highly talented community of 100 top global CMOs," says Paul Jackson, CEO of Grey Advertising Africa.

Jackson adds, "The announcement was made at a graduation ceremony held in Cannes this week. Maharaj's topic on humanised growth is around creating shared value for women in the South African alcohol industry. On behalf of the Grey and WPP team, we would like to congratulate Maharaj on this achievement and deserved recognition."

Companies today are seeking out a new kind of growth — the human kind.

According to Grey, this growth addresses the needs of colleagues, customers, communities and capital markets. We call this Humanised Growth. As a marketing leader, your connection to all the different stakeholders perfectly positions you to help your business recognise their needs and create value for them.
