The Top 40 under 40 is a showcase of local business talent under the age of 40 compiled by the Nelson Mandela Bay Business Chamber (NMBBC).
Ryan Haworth (24) is the Membership Consultant for the Nelson Mandela Bay Business Chamber.
Potential is something Ryan Haworth has in spades. The Nelson Mandela Bay Business Chamber’s Membership Consultant is responsible for increasing the Chamber’s base of new members by over one hundred percent during its successful brand re-launch in early 2011. And, says Haworth, he has every reason to believe that the positive business sentiment will continue well into 2012.
Haworth’s private business interests include a growing online marketing company, and this year saw him launch Change SA, a charity concept for which he has high hopes. “Change SA is a project to help businesses connect with charities online,” explains Haworth, who serves on the Business Chamber’s CSI Task Team. “The concept has been a year in the making, and since its launch, the site has seen over two hundred charities join, allowing them to connect easily with potential donors.” The project represents Haworth’s belief in making a positive difference in the community.
“I believe that business in South Africa has the potential to help thousands of charities,” says Haworth. “As businesses grow, so their contribution to the community should too.”
