WeLead exists to inspire current, emerging and future leaders.

For 20 years, WeLead has been celebrating and highlighting the extensive women’s leadership potential that exists on the African continent. Women’s leadership initiatives are an essential element for creating a society that is gender neutral and empowering for all.

WeLead creates opportunities for real conversation to create real change.

By actively challenging the status quo, real conversations need to focus on inclusivity, rather than exclusionary practices.

WeLead takes the women’s leadership conversation to a variety of sectors and through a wide range of mediums.

For 20 years, Quality Life Company has focused on the power of conversation and collaborative learning to develop leaders and fasttrack learning

The unique impact of a QualityLife event is derived from our commitment to conversation and collaboration. We engage, discuss, collaborate, learn and laugh together. A Qualitylife Event provides a rare and valuable opportunity to network with extraordinary people. Some famous, some who you would otherwise never have met.

The networks, connections and friendships extend way beyond our events. Because when you attend a QualityLife conference or workshop you are not just a passive delegate, you’re an active contributor to the wisdom of the crowd.
