Happy 10th birthday!
What an incredible 10th birthday celebration! When Covid-19 put paid to a real party, we decided to host a virtual event on Zoom to honour the people who have helped our team to achieve what we have over the past 10 years. Never dreaming that he would say yes, we invited Simon Sinek (simonsinek.com) to be our guest speaker. Not only did he agree to participate, but he gave us 45 minutes of his time and provided our guests with positive, insightful and inspiring nuggets of wisdom to contemplate. Thank you to the over 500 donors, volunteers, sponsors and supporters from all around the world who managed to join us for this celebration. We were delighted to give each of our South African participants a goodie bag of wonderful party treats to use to celebrate with us while still keeping safe. It really was a very happy event and a great celebration of the people who have helped us to reach this milestone.
Our grateful thanks to the event sponsors:
– Dan Stillerman, from Excel Academy, who was the coordinator of our Zoom webinar. His attention to detail and incredibly professional handling of the whole process made everything run smoothly and on time. We are so grateful to him for all his advice and support, and totally recommend his services.
– Cathy, from Catz Balloon Decor, who provided the perfect background for our Zoom webinar! It converted our office wall into a cheerful, colourful backdrop.
