It is not where you came from, but where you are going that matters….
Multi award winner and business woman of the year Margaret Hirsch is Avontuur Business Breakfast Club guest speaker this August!
Margaret Hirsch has become a leading example to business women in Southern Africa – coming from a humble background, to co-founding and running the multi million rand Appliance and Electronic retail organisation, Hirsch’s.
Margaret has been recognised through her efforts in building a successful business, and her determination to give back to the community by, over the last four years, winning a multitude of business awards, including two Lifetime Achievement Awards in business and entrepreneurship.
As Chief Operations Officer of the Hirsch group, a sought after speaker at business events and schools – where she has established a successful motivational programme – across Southern Africa, this dynamic woman, who is passionate about her business and the people who work for and with her, has become a legend in her time.
Putting it simply she says “You can work for a boss and make a living – or you can work for yourself and earn a fortune, but you have to be passionate about what you do.”
Margaret regards herself as a “jack of all trades”. having done the selling, invoicing, demonstrating, being a delivery person on the trucks, installing and demonstrating in customers homes and generally taking care of almost everything at Hirsch’s for the past 37 years.
Margaret’s knack of empowering everyone who works for the company is extraordinary. What amazes people is that Margaret does not have an office in any of the branches. She sits at a desk on the floor and helps deal with customer complaints and queries on a daily basis. Margaret Hirsch has become a sought after motivational speaker and is a champion of women’s Empowerment.
