BBQ AWARDS was born with the purpose of acknowledging the greatness of our forefathers through generations of Black Excellence. BBQ Awards is a celebration that rewards achievers with the acknowledgement that their work is valued. The awards show approval and gratitude for each person’s good work and ensure that our people are inspired by the prospect that excellent work will be rewarded and made aware of the outstanding accomplishments of their peers.

As a young woman and coordinator of this prestigious event, I’ve come to realise that BBQ Awards is a vibrant platform in which our black pioneers and upcoming achievers can connect and build relationships with other entrepreneurs in the world of business.

The event is an upmarket showcase with live music that will provide an enabling environment in which young achievers can experiment, learn, teach, adopt, adapt, own and guide themselves through an exciting world of future opportunities.

I look forward to celebrating the 19th year of BBQ Awards in October 2022 and seeing the growth and development of our amazing black pioneers as well as the new crop of upcoming achievers, all of whom will be excited to connect and build relationships with other entrepreneurs in the world of business.

Celebrating  excellence in transformation
