After receiving hundreds of entries and going through thousands of pages of nominations, motivations, videos and verifications, the finalists for the 6th Annual Standard Bank Rising Star Awards were announced in July. Global Access’ very own Marketing and Sales Coordinator Carla Harris (pictured on the right), was one of the top five finalists within the Media and Advertising category. The Rising Star Programme is operated by BlackBark Productions, and is now in its sixth year. It was created to recognise, celebrate and connect young talented individuals who have the capacity to excel in their chosen fields, and who contribute to the future of our nation in an inspirational manner.
The competition saw these thousands of nominees being shortlisted to only 60 finalists. Those 60 finalists then went through a rigorous judging process where their potential as future and current leaders was assessed. Although Carla didn’t win the award, we are so proud of her and what she has achieved both personally and within Global Access and look forward to learning from her and guiding her. #ItsEasyWithGlobal
