“When Women connect, the World changes” – Debby Edelstein

The WeLead Women’s Day Breakfast Forum gives you the opportunity to engage with some of Africa’s most exciting Women Leaders AND to explore your own leadership potential.

For the last 12 years, we’ve seen talented women relish the opportunity to take responsibility for their own leadership journey in an environment that encourages connection, inspires confidence and gives access to support networks.   It is also an honour to celebrate the women (and men) leaders who are paving the way for the future, our role models throughout society.
