For Women’s Month, the workshop will reveal inspiring insights from two leading women in businesses.
The Celebrating Women in Business workshop will be an interactive session with guest speakers Hellen El Haimer and Nene Molefi, both of whom will be sharing their entrepreneurial journeys.
The workshop will look at balancing business and life while providing effective leadership in a male-dominated industry. The discussion will also explore how women can best work together in business for mutual gain, as well as the perceptions of businesswomen and how to change them.
Men are also invited to join the session, as it will also give tips for businessmen to have great working relationships with the businesswomen in their sphere. Practical insights and a question and answer session to help you implement the tips in your particular situation will be available.
