A Seychellois businesswoman has again been awarded for her pioneering role in shaping Seychelles’ tourism industry.
Daniella Payet-Alis recently was named Africa´s Most Influential Women in Business and Government and Titans Building Nations for her achievements in the tourism and leisure sector. The award was given by CEO Global, an organisation that leads business coaching opportunities for learning and development through peer group meetings led by experienced CEO Group Leaders.
Winning two awards in a year has underlined Payet-Alis’s beliefs in the need for women to remind themselves to believe in themselves.Earlier this year, Payet-Alis won a similar award from the Indian Ocean Commission.
“There is only one you and you are blessed with a mix of talents and qualities that no one else has, in building economies and creating a future for younger generations on the African continent,” she said.
Payet-Alis added that while it is fair to say that women face a number of unique challenges in the business world, it is also important to recognize that it is not only external challenges that can hold women back. She said that there is a need for women to question their own thinking before they can break through into new ventures and leadership roles.
The Seychellois businesswoman who has worked in the tourism industry for 13 years, dedicated the latest award to the hard-working woman in Seychelles and those in Africa.
