WOS Celebrates its 5th Anniversary
WOS CELEBRATES ITS 5TH ANNIVERSARY!
I am a firm believer that if you can dream it, you can do it and that when opportunity knocks, to open and let it in.
My vision unfolded on the 13th April 2013 when I launched WOS as a platform to mobilise, empower and impact the lives of South African women from all walks of live. It’s been a humbling journey which has challenged me in ways I could never have imagined.
I don’t think one can fully prepare oneself when embarking on a new business venture but I’ve been blessed to have the support of my husband, my children, family and friends.
My husband, in particular, has been my sounding block, my financial advisor and mentor. He is the quiet operator behind the scenes and has stood by me since I sowed the seed and has watched it grow. He lifts my spirits when I am despondent and celebrates with me when I succeed. He is my rock!
WOS has evolved and transformed over these past five years and today it’s a strong brand. WOS is aligned with strategic partners who strengthen its credibility. It hosts the annual Woman of the Year Awards in recognition of the South African women who make a valued contribution to our beautiful country. The 5 Pillars of Empowerment Learning Journey, endorsed and sponsored by Nedbank, is a self-development and business development programme taking fifty female entrepreneurs on a life changing journey from the 12th March 2018.
It is milestones such as these that make everything I’ve worked so hard to achieve, worthwhile.
I salute the exceptional women I’ve had the great honour to meet along this incredibly fulfilling journey, and I celebrate with everyone who I’ve encountered along the way who has enriched my life.
