As we inch closer to the end of the year, we tend to get our lists ready- oh, you know, the Christmas gift list, holiday party guest lists, grocery lists and that dreaded list of New Year resolutions that you lug along with you into 2020. Here’s a list that won’t make you as morose as the others- the British Herald 2019 Cover Page annual roundup!

Being a bi-monthly magazine, there have been 5 issues of the British Herald Magazine since March 2019 and we’ve got the details of it all, just for you!

  1. March-April 2019: Vladimir Putin

The March-April 2019 British Herald cover page featured a smirking image of Putin pointing away from the camera with the headline ‘Vladimir Putin: Imprint from Russia to the World’.

His term has been running for nearly two decades and he was elected to his fourth and current presidential term in March 2018.

  1. May-June 2019: Jacinda Ardern

The most progressive and youngest woman leader in the world, Jacinda Ardern was featured on the May-June 2019 British Herald cover page. This driven New Zealand Prime Minister graced the cover with an infectious smile alongside the apt caption ‘A Leader of our Times’. Ardern is a woman of the moment who has come to become a beacon of hope in the international political sphere which has become quite grim, of late. The British Herald magazine article has lauded her as a definitive and progressive antithesis to the crowded field of right-wing strongmen whose careers thrive on illiberal, anti-Muslim rhetoric.

  1. July-August 2019: Narendra Modi

The July-August British Herald cover page featured the 14th and current Prime Minister of India- Narendra Modi. He has launched a revolution of his own branded #NaMo built on steadfast promises and a leadership quality that the Indian subcontinent hasn’t seen before. NaMo has been chaired as the Prime Minister of the world’s largest democracy for two consecutive terms. He makes it a priority to constantly visit his foreign allies and strengthen bilateral relations with other countries. This July-August 2019 British Herald issue focused on how Narendra Modi has become a key world leader in the global political landscape.

  1. September-October 2019: Jack Ma

Asian business mogul, self-made billionaire, co-founder and former executive chairman of the Alibaba Group, Jack Ma was featured on the British Herald September-October 2019 issue’s cover page. The eMagazine cover features a grinning Ma with his updated stats- Jack Ma, 55 Retired.

Ending a legacy of 2 decades worth of leadership and exemplary business acumen, Jack Ma is truly an inspiration. The former school teacher, who took 4 attempts to crack the Chinese High school examination, went on to become one of the most powerful personalities in the business. British Herald examines the quintessential story of a simple man who went on to live his dreams and changed the landscape of online shopping and payments in China, a man who harnessed the power of the Internet, without ever writing a single line of code.

  1. November-December 2019: Abiy Ahmed

Abiy Ahmed, the young Ethiopian reformist and Prime Minister, has become a distinguished figure for the cause of peace in the Horn of Africa and was the British Herald cover page personality for the month of November-December 2019.
