Excitement is rising in the Centurion business community where the ten 2014 “Margaret Hirsch Business Woman of the Year Competition” monthly winners are due to meet for their final interviews with Margaret Hirsch, COE of the Hirsch Group. With strong business women participating, each in their own unique capacity, Margaret has been delighted with the response and the calibre of participants.
Over the last few years, Margaret has been the recipient of a variety of awards to acknowledge her contribution to the business world in South Africa, from the BWASA Business Woman of the Year (Entrepreneur) Award in 2012 to SANLAM’s Lifetime Achievement Award in Entrepreneurship in 2013.
“Winning these awards has been wonderful – both for Hirsch’s and for me personally – and I wanted to see this happening to other women in business.” Margaret explained when she decided to launch the Margaret Hirsch Business Woman of the Year Award in each area in which Hirsch’s operates throughout South Africa. “As women, we tend not to be assertive enough. There are so many fantastic women out there who are not coming forward to be acknowledged for their contribution to the business world, and through this competition, we have helped to encourage them to do so.”
