Padma Naidoo honoured as Africa’s Business Continuity and Resilience Consultant of the Year

ContinuitySA makes it a hat trick at the Business Continuity Institute (BCI) Africa awards night.

Padma Naidoo switched from engineering to business continuity in 2006, and since then has gone from strength to strength in her chosen career. She joined ContinuitySA in 2015 after stints as a freelance consultant with Marsh and Deloitte.

It has been a long road, but 12 September was something of milestone when Padma was named Business Continuity and Resilience Consultant for 2017 at the BCI Africa Awards ceremony.

“To be recognised as the consultant of the year in Africa is a huge honour for me,” said a jubilant Padma later.

The award aims to recognise the achievement of business continuity professionals with  “exceptional all-round skills and broad experience in the continuity and resilience space”. Her boss, Jeremy Capell, who was named Industry Personality of the Year at the same function, was warm in his praise of Padma’s achievement: “Since joining us, Padma has built a solid reputation for professionalism and innovation, along with a deep commitment to delivering what her clients need. Nobody is more deserving of this award.”
