HSM’s end-year party is a roaring success

05 December 2013 in General

HSM celebrated the end of year in style last Friday at Mezepoli in Camps Bay for the much-anticipated annual staff party, an event that gives everyone a chance to mingle with their colleagues and inject a bit of fun into their working relationships.



CEO Kevin Ferguson opened up the floor with an inspiring speech about HSM's performance throughout 2013 and congratulated all on a job well done for the past year. Special mentions went to Lisa Bright, Sean Cookson, Jade Cooke, Kelli Winkworth, Tracey Trantaal and Nasreen Abrahams for their positive attitudes, smiling faces and 'never say die' perspective during challenging times.



It was also an opportunity to present outstanding members of the HSM team with awards for their contributions to the standard of excellence produced on the floor. The awards were as follows:

The evening ended in high spirits (pun intended *wink*) with dancing, photobooth fun and plenty of laughter as well as the reveal of all the staff departmental photographs taken the previous week. 'This certainly is an event that offers the staff a well deserved opportunity to let their hair down and enjoy themselves with no expense spared by HSM,' says marketing executive Kim Schonfeldt.


Thanks must go to the marketing department for their outstanding efforts in putting an event of this standard together.
