Our Gala Dinner is only a few weeks away and make sure your book your table as soon as the invite is in your inbox. Your Education committee heads into the final stretch of workshops. Much preparation continues to go into the Academic Awards Luncheon, where we look forward to recognizing those learners who have excelled in their respective subjects.

Women’s Day Feedback

On August 19 for women’s month, PG Glass and Hollard in conjunction with the IIKZN treated the ladies to an afternoon of pampering and motivational talks.
Snacks and drinks were provided and each lady was given a pamper bag to take away. The feedback was all very positive and the afternoon was a resounding success.

Many thanks to Hollard and PG Glass for their support which assists in the growth of women in the industry.
