RBWOYA 2019: Just a few more days to nominate the region’s top businesswomen!

JUST a few more days remain to nominate the top businesswomen of Nelson Mandela Bay and surrounds.

Nominations for the BWA/Investec Regional Business Woman of the Year Awards (RBWOYA) 2019 close this coming Thursday, February 28.

The prestigious competition annually seeks to acknowledge excellence in the business, corporate, professional and social arena.

A celebration of women in business in Nelson Mandela Bay, the winners in each category are pioneers in their respective fields, coming from diverse industries, but sharing the same drive and passion for career excellence.
