CALLING BACK THE PAST
While opening another Marshmallow Easter Egg I realised that this year is literally hopping away with us. Time is waiting for no one.

The Presidents Inaugural Lunch was great and we have fabulous people in this industry of ours. The new council were introduced and we look forward to a year of growth, development and fun with a number of new faces bringing with them fresh ideas and new energy. If you missed out, check our Facebook Page for photos of the event.

Our calendar of events have been updated so clear those diaries and make note of your IIKZN events. The ever popular Night Racing will be held on the 15th May so watch this space for booking information.

And the winner is..."RISKSA wins 'Best Niche Magazine Award' in USA" .

"What does all of this actually mean? For a small publishing house like COSA, the winning of these accolades actually means a great deal. It affords marketing directors, media buyers and clients alike the comfort and security of knowing that their hard-earned marketing budgets are being well spent on the right platforms. It enables COSA to attract the brightest young talent, keen to work on its many successful titles. The most important benefit of COSA's successes on an international stage, however, is perhaps that by benchmarking its efforts against the best international media, COSA is able to consistently bring quality products across all its channels to a growing audience. " Congratulations to our Media Partner! EPIC!

Until next time "As soon as something stops being fun, I think it's time to move on. Life is too short to be unhappy. Waking up stressed and miserable is not a good way to live." ― Richard Branson, Screw It, Let's Do It: Lessons In Life
