Regional-Award-2010The  AFRIVAN  VAimpact awards are annual outstanding ovation awards in different categories awarded to Virtual Assistants and business partners who have achieved and demonstrated high standards of business excellence, creativity, professional business practice and are constantly promoting the Virtual Assistant Industry in Africa.

We are proud to announce that the founders of Be Virtual Assistant Wise, Francis van Wyk and Marietjie Steyn were nominated for 3 of the 4 categories namely:

Above and Beyond Award: This VAimpact award is for an individual who has worked creatively beyond the expectation of Virtual Assistants in a short period of time in the VA industry.

Achievement Award: This VAimpact award is given to individuals for outstanding contribution over significant period of time in the VA industry.

Regional Award: This VAimpact award is a standing ovation award for an individual or association with strong business understanding and development with incomparable business management.

We were quite humbled to learn that we won the Business Regional VAimpact Award. It is an important achievement, not only for our organisation, but also for every person associated with BeVAWise.

We sincerely want to thank everyone who are part of our community for your involvement and participation and helping us to reach this important milestone.

This award makes each of you a winner as well, since WE cannot exist without YOU!

Winning the regional award as the best VA organisation in South Africa surely motivates and inspires us to grow the industry further to the benefit of all our members.

We also would like to congratulate the winners of the other awards:
