The 14th Annual Oliver Empowerment Awards Nominations Close 27 February 2015

“The Oliver Awards provide a wonderful opportunity to get an objective evaluation and to be celebrated as a company that is committed to the realization of an inclusive economy. We are proud to have been recognized among the top companies that do this year in and year out.

“I would encourage any company that wants to take the guess work out of their transformation efforts to participate in this effort. They will benefit and getting the accolades always motivate the staff who work hard to see transformation occur,” Jerry Gule, Total SA.

The 14th Annual Oliver Awards is once again set to be a prestigious, opulent and significant event, with the Minister of Public Enterprises, Lynne Brown as the confirmed guest speaker.

Becoming a finalist means your business is in the top percentile of your sector. Your presence at the Awards gives you the opportunity to affirm this among your peers and to network at a significant and meaningful level.

“It’s an honour to be among the recipients of this prestigious award. The award aligns to our business vision of creating a legacy of leadership excellence in Africa and beyond. What excites me about this opportunity is the ability to lead the way in driving transformation in the South African business landscape and in particular our profession. Our company profile continues to be propelled to greater heights through acknowledgements such as the Oliver Empowerment Awards and other accolades our organisation has enjoyed over the years. The awards have a history of credible recipients whom in their own right have become legends of the cause for leadership excellence. Our business rests firmly on having a purpose greater than ourselves.
