Women’s breakfast: your opportunity to network

2011-08-25 00:00

THE organisers of The Witness Women’s Breakfast taking place at the Sinodale Centre tomorrow have promised the women of Pietermaritzburg an exciting networking opportunity.

The Witness and Sanlam have organised the event in partnership with uKhozi FM and uMgungundlovu District Municipality. The focus will be on celebrating women and encouraging those women who want to make it in life.

Three outstanding speakers will share their inspiring stories with participants. One is Laura Ilunga, a helicopter pilot. Ilunga flies a chopper in mountain and off-shore rescues and fire-fighting. She’ll be joined by editor Dorah Sitole, head of Media 24’s Developing Markets’ Books Division and formerly the editor of True Love magazine, and Iris Francis, group internal communications and corporate social investment manager for the McCarthy Group. She recently addressed the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women in Africa Forum 2011.

To add flavour to the event, Judy Umraw, who is a soul fusion dancer, will perform a specially choreographed dance called The Caterpillar Becomes a Butterfly. The theme of the dance is that the trials and tribulations of life should not keep women in a cocoon; rather, they have the power to dance through and emerge like a butterfly.

Entry costs R120, which includes tea, coffee and a muffin on arrival, a mid-morning finger breakfast and a goody bag. There are great prizes to be won. The event starts at 8.00 am for 8.30 am and runs till noon. Call Mary-Lynn at The Witness on 033 355 1110 now to book a seat.
