            Sponsored  by  Hogan  Lovells,  a  long-term  strategic  member  of  the  Chamber,  the  awards
            celebrated individuals and businesses from across the spectrum of South African society, with
            different age groups, women, and a representative variety of ethnic backgrounds represented.
            In  his  keynote  address,  Wessel  Badenhorst,  partner  Hogan  Lovells’  Johannesburg  office
            highlighted the complications and challenges facing South Africa in this 30th year of democracy

            and likely the most pivotal General Election since 1994. He also congratulated the Chamber,
            saying, “The Awards evening was epic. Well done to Sharon Constançon and the team for
            putting together a flawless performance.”

            Andrew Selous MP, the Prime Minister’s Trade Envoy for South Africa, echoed this sentiment,
            saying, “Congratulations on a splendid evening which as a huge success.”

            Sharon Constançon, Chairman of the South African Chamber of Commerce UK, said “Being
            selected as a finalist though the layers of judging is an amazing accomplishment in itself, and I
            was delighted to see 22 finalists achieve this honour. The judges had an extremely difficult task
            and I’m glad I wasn’t one of them.”
