Excelling in business

Updated: Aug 29, 2022

We are proud to feature the winners and finalists of the Standard Bank KZN Top Business Awards 2022 in this edition of Business Sense.

Taking the time to enter business awards can be very time-consuming, but the return on investment can be significant, even if you don’t get chosen as a finalist or winner. There is often the belief that business awards are only for large companies. However, the Standard Bank KZN Top Business Awards are inclusive and those that don’t put themselves forward stand to miss out. As is often mentioned, “You’ve got to be in it to win it”.

On the front page and page three of this edition we feature Isaac Mbatha, founder and CEO of Sky Tents, who was the winner of the entrepreneur category. He strongly believes that “consistency is key to success.”

Visit pages 5 to 12 for all the other winners and finalists – we congratulate all of you as well as all other nominees on your successes.
