How South African businesses have leveraged the art of award winning

Issued by: Topco Media | 22 Aug 2014 10:21
As South Africa reaches its 20th year of democratic freedom, it is time to reward those hands that have helped build and shape the country's prosperous economy that it is today.
In association with the Top Performing Companies publication, the 12th Annual National Business Awards is a novel event dedicated to South Africa's leading companies who exercise outstanding innovation, pride themselves on strong ethics, and sustain success.

These individuals and organisation advance our nation across a range of sectors and, in their business practices, enhance South Africa's position as a critical player in the global market.

Integr8 CEO and three-time award winner at the National Business Awards Rob Sussman co-founded the company with Lance Fanaroff in 2001. The two young entrepreneurs invested R300,000 from their own pockets into a new business venture fuelled with big dreams of revolutionising the ICT sector.

When asked what attributed to their success, Sussman said that winning at the National Business Awards gave immense credibility to their business profile. "The recognition that has been bestowed on the Integr8 brand through the Topco association has been well respected by our industry peers and the technology industry as a whole," he said.

"Over and above this, the personal acknowledgement has added an additional layer of credibility through the stamp of recognition by Topco. This is invaluable," said Sussman. "We would be honoured to enter the National Business Awards at any time the opportunity is presented to us, as apart from the credibility of the award itself, the events present a high level of networking and social engagement."

Make sure that those at the forefront of business innovation are celebrated for their contributions to the world of business and beyond. Nominate an individual or an organisation for an award and submit your applications now.
