NATION Builders, champions for the upliftment of the community through empowering women, hosted the Woman Wired to Lead Seminar at the Umhlali Country Club on Saturday, December 2.

One hundred women gathered in an effort to uplift themselves and discover their leadership potential.

Founder of Nation Builders Annet Michelle Sewraj set the tone for the seminar.
Speaking on “Traits for Trailblazing”, she provided delegates with the barriers that prevent women from rising up to leadership roles and also inspired them with various principles on how to overcome these barriers.

From leading at home with her family to rising up as a leader at the workplace, women are born leaders, she said.

Michelle Munn, one of the managing partners at MultiSearch Recruitment, used her wealth of knowledge and experience in the business world to encourage the woman not wait for hand-outs, but to rather get out there and take responsibility for their development.

Through her topic “Mastering the Marketplace”, she stressed how important it was for women to become experts in their field and to know the demands of the job market.

Managay Pillay, the second guest speaker, is the regional fund-raising manager of KZN Boys and Girls Town. She shared on “Elevation in the Workplace”.

Her experience in business over the past 26 years allowed her to inspire women to be brave enough to progress and succeed in what still remains a male dominated society.

Sewraj said seminars like the Women Wired to Lead, are held with the intention to give women hope, inspiration and encouragement to unlock their true potential and become nation builders themselves.

The event saw many women begin to
network with each other for future programmes.

Many more such programmes and events targeting women, youth and children are being planned by Nation Builders for 2018.
