Awakening Excellence was founded in 2004 by Dr Mariam Sha, in the belief that people have the talent and resources within them to achieve their purpose and contribute more fully to organisations. It was a start to her journey to support people and organisations to be more engaged and productive.
The business over the years had evolved to meet the needs of business and people and be relevant and aligned to current thinking and research in the space of people management and development.
In recent years through Dr Sha’s research and background as an accountant, has created more focus on the impact of learning interventions on individuals, teams and organisations. Hearing the needs of business, she has begun to specialise on calculating meaningful return on investment on learning interventions. Several of her recent talks at conferences in South Africa and internationally has been on measuring the benefits of learning and development and applying the results for continuous improvement in the business.
