Acknowledgment is one of those things that you donâ€™t think about until you notice itâ€™s missing.
As business leaders, we often donâ€™t take time to celebrate the successes and achievements, of ourselves and of our businesses. However, a celebration provides a moment to pause, acknowledge the good work that has been done as well as the people who do it.
As such this copy of KZN Business Sense is proud to feature a number of the KBCC membersâ€™ annual award events, which acknowledge their members or associatesâ€™ endeavours in a range of categories.
These awards comprise:
We congratulate all those individuals, companies and organisations in the public and private sector who have participated in and supported these events.
The Durban Chamber of Commerce and Industry, in partnership with Transnet Port Terminals: KZN Exporter of the Year Awards.
iLembe Chamberâ€™s The Entrepreneur 2018 competition
The Minara Business Recognition Awards
The Pietermaritzburg Chamber Business Awards
The Zululand Business Chamber Business Awards are to be held later in November.
In addition, we would like to congratulate eThekwini Municipality and its investments promotion unit, Invest Durban, who cooped no fewer than eight Diamond Arrow Awards in the prestigious PMR.africa awards. Business awards are a way of recognising the amazing contributions of these individuals, companies and organisations to our communities and to the economy of our province of KwaZulu-Natal.
By acknowledging and celebrating success, we are acknowledging the hard work, outstanding achievements and vision that has so often driven these journeys.
In addition, winning an award is a confirmation that you are successful in a competitive environment. This in turn will greatly enhance your reputation to your customers, which will generate more revenue for your
company and motivate you and your employees to reach greater heights.
A business award win or nomination can open doors and have a greater impact on the growth of a smaller company. We therefore encourage all business people to continue to strive for greatness in all that you do and to welcome the recognition that success brings. We look forward to celebrating with you in 2019.
We would like to thank our editorial partners for their continued support throughout the year. We wish you and all our readers well over the upcoming festive season.
