“They [winners] have distinguished themselves within their sectors, while many other companies are grappling with the challenges of our tough market and other business policies. Excellence never comes easily or quickly… It is a major, multi-year journey,” said Mathews Phosa at the 13th annual National Business Awards. Phosa will also be speaking at the Secrets to Success Conference.
