                                         On  Wednesday,  31st  January  members  and  supporters  of  the
                                         South  African  Chamber  of  Commerce  UK  gathered  at  Saddlers’
                                         Hall, in the heart of the City of London, to honour businesses and
                                         individuals who have demonstrated outstanding achievements,

                      ANNUAL             innovation,  and  resilience  in  their  respective  fields,  symbolising
                 AWARDS                  the dynamic business landscape of both the UK and South Africa
                    CELEBRATION          across a broad range of disciplines. The awards exist to promote bi-
                     2023                lateral trade and cooperation, to celebrate the highest standards in

                                         business excellence, and to inspire up-and-coming businesspeople
                                         with the belief that with hard work and determination, success is an
                                         achievable goal.

            Attended by almost 100 finalists, guests, members and supporters, the atmosphere was warm
            and the enthusiasm contagious. We were very grateful to the many finalists based in South
            Africa who made themselves available via Zoom to participate in the evening, which given the
            two-hour time difference made it quite a late night for them. It was wonderful to capture their
            reactions live, and heartwarming to witness the joy and gratitude the winners expressed, which
            made the months of preparation for the evening very worthwhile.  It was impossible not to
            be moved at the winner’s spontaneous reactions, showing that it makes a very real impact to

            have achievements recognised. The awards also provide a well-deserved exposure for some of
            South Africa’s finest in front of an international and influential audience.
