South Africa (May 2016) – 8 June 2016 is without a doubt THE highlight on all Garden Route business women’s calendars. The SA Council for Business Women (SACBW) is hosting their Western Cape seminar on 8 June 2016 at Garden Court, Mossel Bay.
For one entire day, dynamic topics will be presented by a number of professional speakers and an interactive workshop will be held to empower business women. This forms part of the SACBW’s national congress where they are delivering five seminars in various regions in South Africa as well as the judging for the Business Woman of the Year competition.
The SACBW is a non-profit organisation and is represented nationally by successful business women. The council was established with the goal to find an organisation that represents women in business and create a vehicle for women to network, learn from each other, grow and mentor other women in the field of business.
George’s very own Professor Quinton Johnson, Principal of the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University George Campus in the Southern Cape, will be one of the keynote speakers at the seminar. He will address attendees on how to keep up with the times. In his own words “In today’s business world, change is the only thing that is consistent – stay on top of trends, yourself and your business”.
