And the gold medal goes to...

02.02.12

We always knew the staff at Shopworks were a talented bunch. And now we have the evidence (and the photos) to prove it...

First up is MD of Shopworks South Africa, Dawn.

 

Dawn recently won a gold medal in the Adult Hip Hop Formation Team category at the World Hip Hop, Electric Boogie and Break Dance Championships.

Amazingly, Dawn only started dancing a year ago, when she joined an evening hip hop class to get fit.  After just two weeks, she was encouraged to join a hip hop competition team and was soon invited to join a professional team of vice world championship dancers (are you sure you never danced before, Dawn?).  The rest, as they say, is history. 

The team went on to take the gold medal for South Africa, beating 19 other countries... and Dawn is fitter than ever! 
The photo shows Dawn second row from the front, second on the right.

Not to be outdone...

 

Joao

Our MD of Shopworks China and portugal, Joao, is reaching gold star standard in his Chinese language studies.

He started to learn Mandarin just a few months ago after being awarded a scholarship to study the language.  Within just 3 months he had progressed from a basic to an intermediary level student and is getting great feedback from his tutors.

"Learning Chinese is hard work but a real pleasure.  I'm learning about both the language and the culture and not only am I enjoying it, but it's also proving extremely useful in terms of our business here in China." Says Joao.
