Durban businesswomen honoured at special awards evening

Businesswoman and socialite, Sorisha Naidoo, Cerisha Naicker of Morningside, who runs a successful bridal styling and video and photography company, together with Margaret Hirsch at the awards evening. Naicker was the winner in the Umhlanga category.

The Margaret Hirsch Women in Business Achiever of the Year awards evening was held, recently and the function was attended by phenomenal women, who have all made an impact in their respective communities.

Top entrepreneurs and businesswomen from around KZN attended the event to see who would be announced as the regional and branch winners.

The event was co-sponsored by LG, one of Hirsch’s most valued suppliers.

Guest speaker at the event, inspirational speaker and comedienne, Mary Steward, complimented Margaret and Hirsch’s for their initiative for holding the event, and for being a great inspiration to businesswomen throughout South Africa.

Announcing the winners, Margaret, who started the competition countrywide six years ago after winning several awards herself over the years, said that she could see how much of an impact the acknowledgement of her own success had been and wanted to see more women in this position.

“Awards give credibility to one’s business and as women, we tend to shy away from being in the limelight. We also tend not to be assertive enough. This was my way of encouraging women to put themselves and their businesses in the spotlight,” she explained. 

She concluded, “The winners and runners-up are people who not only run successful businesses, but are making a difference to the lives of others in all the areas in which they live and ultimately, the lives of people in South Africa.”
