Johannesburg - Cherie Blair will on Thursday speak at an event hosted by her foundation, to provide mentoring to aspiring businesswomen.

Blair, a lawyer and lecturer, is the wife of former British prime minister Tony Blair.

“Many women in developing and emerging markets have the ideas and ambition to become successful entrepreneurs but are held back by barriers such as lack of access to business skills, technology, networks and finance,” the Cherie Blair Foundation's website states.

The event will be held in Melrose Arch, Johannesburg.
