9th Annual Leadership Development for Women Highlights

Dear Women in Leadership,

Thank you for being part of the 9th Annual Leadership Development for Women Conference which  attracted over 350 delegates.

Delegates were privy to a wealth of knowledge by speakers who shared their unique experiences in their journey in influence and leadership. The Minister of Home Affairs, Hlengiwe Mkhize rendered a motivating speech that encouraged women to leave no stone unturned in excelling in their career. 

The networking sessions saw delegates interact and move outside their comfort zones to meet their peers. Women were treated to an express SPA treatment which was a welcome break away from their daily duties.
