Event description


This is a two part event commencing with an interview of the author of Pearls of Wisdom for Women, Catherine N Makau followed by an engaging and inspirational session of discussions, question and answers from a panel made up of 6 seasoned speakers including the host Esosa Ikolo.

The discussions will cover a host of subjects that pertain to the everyday woman of all ages and from a godly and contemporary perspective.

We are excited that we can have this event in the month of the International Women’s day which falls on 8th March with this year's theme #PressforProgress.

The event aims to:

· Attract ladies to a haven where they can share societal and individual issues pertinent to them and receive wise counsel.

· Provide attendees with golden nuggets which will help them in their day to day life and pursuit of their purpose.

·Offer a life line of opportunities that will enable them to achieve higher heights.

· Engage with women through knowledge sharing from the speakers.

·Inspire women to achieve their dreams and potential.

·Offer practical tools they can use to ‘get back up again’ after a big set back and/or improve on their current status.
