North coast businesswomen, company representatives, and aspiring entrepreneurs were out in full force for a great morning of networking at the Hirsch’s Homestore Ballito recently. The guest speaker for the morning was Coach Sheridan Pollock, and her talk was entitled “DEFINING YOUR RUNWAY.” Commented Hirsch’s Shane Spencer, “Sheridan spoke about exploring what is stalling our sense of ease in our lives and our businesses and how to overcome these. “Time goes on, so whatever you’re going to do, do it now.” Said Sheridan
Adding to the excitement of the morning, Farah Manjoo, owner of Baraaqa Healing Sanctuary and Learning Centre was announced as the Margaret Hirsch Women in Business Achiever of the year finalist for the month.” Farah is passionate about working with women, children and students of all ages and it really shows in her work, we are so thrilled to have her as our finalist for the month.” Commented Shane.
Margaret who has won many awards over the years commented on the reason behind her starting the women in business competition, “Winning these awards has been wonderful – both for Hirsch’s and for me personally, and I would like to see this happening to other women in business. As women, we tend not to be assertive enough. There are so many fantastic women out there who are not coming forward to be acknowledged for their contribution to the business world, and I would like to encourage them to come forward and enter the competition or nominate a friend or business owner who they would like to be recognized for this award and if you think you are a successful businesswoman don’t be too shy to enter yourself!” she said.
