Sharon receiving Woman in Business Award

Sharon Constançon was awarded by the SA Chamber in the UK, the prestigious award of “Woman in Business” for 2013 on Thursday 28th November.

The Award was presented by Chris Potter, Head of Operations at CIB International, Standard Bank London.

“I am honoured to receive this award and will focus this first year on supporting and encouraging other women and entrepreneurs to follow their dreams.” 

Business is not easy at the best of times and very challenging under current market conditions – being recognised by the business community as an achiever is truly fantastic.

“This award is a valid recognition of Sharon’s ability to add value to practically any business relationship. It also reflects her ability to get things done and deliver.”  Alan Hindley, Chairman Genius Methods

South Africa has exported amazing talent into all corners of the world.  I am pleased to hold this accolade on behalf of the country’s widely flung hard working women. 

The nomination was a surprise, and thanks to whoever your are – I hope I asked you to vote!  Requesting votes was an “uncomfortable” process, nearly as difficult as raising funds for charity!!  The outcome has had humbled me, with your support, encouragement and recognition – I will, with the support of my teams, go from strength to strength, in the UK, SA and plans include global expansion.

Thanks to the SA Chamber, the South African, my staff, family, friends, clients and colleagues.
