Chantal Nominated for the Regional Business Achiever Awards

Chantal has always been passionate about business in South Africa. It's one of the core reasons KIN is a strictly South-African-made platform. Chantal firmly believes in the ethical success of South African business and of running her own company in a way which truly supports the economy, KIN's 112 contributing designers, staff and herself. Designers and customers alike love getting caught up in serious conversation with her when they pop in to drop off stock or pick a gift, and it's because her enthusiasm is boundless and her sense of true purpose wonderfully contagious.

It's very exciting news that Chantal has been nominated for the Businesswomen's Association Regional Business Achiever Award. If you popped in to KIN on Kloof last Friday, you were probably caught on the edges of film as Chantal's first interview got underway.

Who is the BWA?
"As the voice of women in business, the Businesswomen's Association of South Africa (BWASA) is the largest and most prominent association of business and professional women in the country. It plays a key role in highlighting the current status of women in leadership and acts as a lobby group that advocates on women's business issues in an effort to transform the economy."

What are these awards all about?
"Since 2001, BWASA has held the annual Regional Business Achiever Awards (RBAA) in recognition of women throughout the country who are contributing to business, whether as entrepreneurs, professionals or in corporate business or government. The RBAA are a highlight on the business calendar of every BWASA branch. The awards are run independently by each branch, and include up to six categories, including: emerging entrepreneur, entrepreneur, social entrepreneur, professional, corporate and government... With 10 BWASA branches around South Africa, the RBAA offer a mechanism to reward women across all sectors, wherever they are based, as well as a platform to showcase the talent that each region has to offer."

The award winners are announced next Thursday at a gorgeous, glamorous awards evening - join us in holding thumbs for our KIN, Chantal. We would SO love to see her celebrated with some well-deserved recognition.
