StarCentral Media Group’s “Movers and Shakers” recognises entrepreneurs, emerging and established talents, models, and actors who haven’t been afraid to take chances, rethink the way they grow their brand and their business, and embrace the challenges facing their respective industries head-on. A lot has happened in the world this year especially because of the rapid and catastrophic impact on the economy created by COVID-19. While the healthcare, transport, and warehousing world continued to experience a huge uptick, sectors like hospitality, air travel and tourism, creative arts and entertainment, and sports and recreation struggled. But through it all, there were a few entrepreneurs and individuals that managed to stay on top of people’s minds.
Let’s take a look at the movers and shakers that rocked their way in June 2022.

From there, SEP began to take off.
