The Savvy Women's Circle (SWC) is delighted to invite you to our inaugural conference on Women in Leadership with a focus on Strategy for Success. This forms part of our “Making time to Connect” series in which female intrepreneurs and entrepreneurs, from different sectors and industries, come together to connect, share know-how and empower each other.
Discussion: Women In Leadership - Strategy for Success. "Inspiring women to transition into leadership roles in career, business and community"
We have carefully selected women leaders who have taken corporations, governments, and businesses to new heights. They've shown other women the possibilities and the power they hold in their own hands.
What experiences moved these women forward?
You’ll learn valuable tactics to help you move forward into leadership roles. Get your ticket today.
