Business Continuity Africa recognises AllLife with the Most Effective Recovery Award 2015 (for Africa)
Business Continuity Africa on Tuesday 18th August recognised AllLife with the Most Effective Recovery Award 2015 (for Africa) for the business’s recovery from a fire on 21st June 2014 that destroyed AllLife’s Johannesburg offices.
AllLife, a South African firm, recognized by global business community for the great impact it is having on people’s lives.
AllLife was recognized last night by the global business community when awarded the overall winner in the BITC (Business in the Community) Prince of Wales Unilever Global Development Award in London last night. Ross Beerman, CEO AllLife Group, accepted the award at a gala dinner held at Prince Albert Hall in London in front of thousands of UK and global business leaders. Commenting after accepting the award, Ross Beerman said: “Although we know that we have real impact on people’s lives every single day, at AllLife our impact is not as a result of a CSI programme, rather we have embedded the philosophy of having real impact into the core of our business DNA. We are a social impact firm in the truest sense, in that we cannot operate profitably without having an immense positive impact on our clients and society. It is nice to realise that when we do tell our story, others take notice, and recognise the positive effect that we are having on South African society, along with a real and material impact on our clients’ lives”

When you are faced with dealing with a disabling illness, it can take you by surprise, as it’s not something most of us anticipate, and may affect you in many different ways. Coupled with being diagnosed with diabetes, this can hugely affect your day-to-day living and even cause you to feel defeated.
Sometimes, diabetes symptoms may take time to appear without you being aware of it, and sometimes not at all. If you show any of these symptoms, visit your doctor and check your blood sugar levels, to make sure.
Good heart health is essential for living a healthy life, and even more important when you’re living with diabetes. Having diabetes means that you’re at a greater risk of heart attacks and strokes.
