AS Women’s Month came to an end last Friday, guest speakers alongside founders of The Pink Couch, Tessa Green and Precious Gumede, involved their audience in discussions on topical issues that affect women.

At the stylish event held at the Margate Hotel, the pair were also launching their new business, which is the second sphere of The Pink Couch, The Pink Couch Live, which is an online or digital magazine that will market local businesses.

According to the organisers, the idea is to incorporate the digital era and create a new platform for advertising and promotions.

Gumede said during the show that the majority of their audiences agree that the most important thing women should practise is believing in themselves, having confidence and appreciating who they are.

“The Pink Couch will be hosting shows on a monthly basis covering various topics, as this has been the initial vision of connecting with others.

“Sharing an experiences is the main ingredient for bringing people back to a place of connecting and engaging with each other,” said Gumede.

Green said The Pink Couch Live is not to be mistaken for a marketing brand but rather a communication, advertising and events vehicle; a ‘video business card’.

“I love the idea of conversation and building up people through discussions around the social ills affecting our communities and businesses, which all equate to balance, a harmonious and safe family and community life.

“However, as a business, one must always find new ways to keep your business fresh and up-to-date with market trends. It’s on this premise that we are thrilled to introduce the next phase of The Pink Couch — The Pink Couch Live.

“Through interviews we will be able to put together a holistic look that our clients wish to portray to their client base.

“This is an exciting time to be breaking new ground, while the market and the economy are all so uncertain.

“Finding new ways to assist businesses to stay in the fight while not breaking the bank is our main goal,” said Green.
