Earlier this week, H.E Dr. Sam Nujoma, the patron of the Sam Nujoma Enterprise Development Awards (SNIEDA) conferred the Woman Innovator Award for 2014 on Natasja Beyleveld, the Managing Director of NaMedia.
Beyleveled and her work in media monitoring through NaMedia first came onto the business radar last year, when she received the Young Businesswoman of the Year award, as part of the bigger Namibian Businesswoman of the Year awards.
At the SNIEDA awards, a passionate Natasja asked Dr. Nujoma for a hug, and in turn received two. “I have always admired Dr. Nujoma, and in my mind I knew that on the first opportunity of meeting him, I would hug him with all the love I can bear” she said.
In response to receiving the Woman Innovator Award, she thanked her team, clients and family. “From the bottom of my heart, I would like to thank each client, colleague, friend and family member for your continued support to Team NaMedia.

Our acceptance of the Sam Nujoma Innovative Enterprise Development Award for the category Woman Innovator of 2014 last night, was awesome. We have experienced open heavens, and are humbled, excited, blessed and thankful.
Clients’ hard work, innovation and passion inspire us, we celebrate this achievement with them, because without them it would not have been possible” said Natasja.
One of the senior media analysts at NaMedia, Mrs. Julia Ya Kasita-Nalisa wholeheartedly supports Natasja stating “I am proud and honoured to have been part of this great team.
The award serves as motivation to my team of analysts to work harder and to aim higher, because it seems that us Namibian women know what it takes”.   Natasja started as an employee, became the leader of the company, took over the company in 2011 and continues to view her job as her passion and purpose.  NaMedia believes in investing back into society, as each “corporate company in Namibia needs to pay it forward, needs to care about those that have less and needs a fair chance in life”.
