South African Chamber of Commerce (UK)

Business & Community Awards 2018

"Outstanding efforts deserve reward and recognition"


The South African Chamber of Commerce invites nominations for well-deserved efforts in business and the community.  Please join us in the celebration of achievements at the Annual Awards evening in the The Conservatory, Millennium Gloucester Hotel, Harrington Gardens. London, SW7 4LH, where we will sip bubbly and watch the evening sunset.

The Chamber offers network and sponsor opportunities to those who wish to position their companies, generate awareness, gain media exposure, respect and recognition while providing support and recognition to new comers in the market.

Features of the Awards

This year we have increased our Award Categories to 10 to broaden the range and offer more to both the business and the community.


The Awards recognise 10 achievers ranging from individuals who have made a difference in the small business sector or their community, the efforts made by those in the Charitable and Giving Back arenas and to those in the corporate business sector who have added value.

Nominees and Finalists will be celebrated in the run up to the event and the SA Chamber will provide a media platform to winners and their sponsors to promote their businesses during the forthcoming year.

Sponsorship is all about giving a hand up, bring your value and supporting those you believe in.


The Glorious Night

Key Speaker

Sir Nicholas Stadlen

Who is he:

Sir Nicholas Stadlen, UK High Court Judge now retired, has been involved in many high-profile cases.  He presided over the 12-year Bank of England case where he completed the longest speech in legal history for which he has become famous. 

Why are we interested:

He has  interviewed world famous politicians,  a visiting fellow of St Antony’s College Oxford, and has written a book on the Rivonia Trail which is now a feature film due for release this year. 

What will he share:

He will share with us about what really happened behind the scenes of that trial of the 10 now prominent South Africans, and particularly the lessons we today can learn -  because of what they stood for then.

(Tickets to a private viewing of the film will be auctioned on the night).


Enjoy networking in the amazing glass Atrium whilst you watch the sun go down and the stars appear. 

Once the carriages are called after 11:00 pm the main hotel bar will remain open for us.
