The annual Free State Mothers in Business luncheon is once again being held in honour of the women in the province who have made an impact not only in their careers but in society as well.
The women being honoured are often the wives of well-known businessmen in the community who have contributed to society, whether it be through their family businesses or through contributing towards improving their communities.
Founder and host, Matumo Molosioa, said this year they have branched out to not only honouring business women, but also women who are doing well in their careers. “This year we are going broader by including women from different professions, we have influential old medical doctors, police officers and media personalities who have also had an impact in our society.”
This year’s lineup includes a keynote address by international speaker and leader, Dr Pearl Kupe. “She has sat on many boards of companies, particularly in Africa, and her knowledge is very broad. We are trying to narrow the gap between these established women whom we will be honouring, as well as those that will be attending.”
Other guests include long serving Free State advocate, Kuni Ditiri, actress, poet and life coach, Tinah Mnumzana, and owner of Izani Guesthouse, Dolly Kenney, with the late former Premier Winkie Direko being honoured as the Posthumous Honouree. And the guest musician is Morwesi Sebiloane.
Molosioa added that the event is for any woman looking for motivation and inspiration from women in their own communities who are within reach.
The event will be taking place at the Leslie Monnyane Hall at Home Affairs in Rocklands on 16 September 2017 at 10:00. Ticket prices start at R300 till the 15th and R350 thereafter. For tickets and more information call 083-336-3699 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
