*Executive Director of United Nations Women to be **Honoured** at In Good Company Experience Business Festival*

In Good Company announced Dr. Phumzile
Mlambo-Ngcuka, who is United Nations Under-Secretary-General and Executive
Director of UN Women, as the female powerhouse to receive the honorary
Award at this year’s event – powered by Steyn City.

*In Good Company Experience – *themed Building the Africa of Tomorrow is a
platform created to afford women in business and corporate an opportunity
to participate in the creation of a gender balanced continent; economically
and socially. It also celebrates and recognises women who have contributed
towards the country and Africa’s betterment. “We hold Dr Mlambo-Ngcuka in
high regard for the notable work she has done and continues to do. She has
devoted her career to issues of human rights, equality and social justice
in this continent and beyond. We are especially honoured that she is our
Honorary this year,” said Jabulile Gwala – Founder and CEO of In Good
Company – at the media briefing held at Nineteen restaurant in Steyn City.

*#IGCExperience 2019*

The event taking place on the 26th of September 2019 at Steyn City is
expected to afford a unique experience for patrons. “There is a growing
number of platforms and spaces where we can listen to our mentors and
role-models journey to success but there are limited ways of connecting
with them in a more meaningful way. Women struggle with networking, not
socialising, networking with a clear business purpose in mind. This is why
we decided this year that we will aid in connecting guests with phenomenal
women and men with similar interests as them by partnering with Steyn
City,” says Gwala.

The *Business festival for Women* will have talks, master classes, panel
discussions, business speed dating and networking, a gin bar; *IGC Network
area;* food, fashion and beauty market; as well as Live Performances – all
curated by women. It will be an engaging and interactive space for all
feminists – as described by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie as – ‘people who
believe in the social, economic and political equality of the sexes.’

Women with interests in Marketing; Construction; Property; Wellness;
Business; Technology; Fashion; Art; Music; Legal; Food; Beauty with Impact
and Humanitarian services will get to meet and greet trail blazers in the
respective industries. There will be 15 min meetings being scheduled
throughout the day to deal with specific questions they need help with from
the mentors. Further details can be found on the #IGCExperience website.
Talking about the meet and greets, Jabulile Gwala had this to say; “This is
an exciting addition to our day activities, over and above the powerful
summit programme, and the business matchmaking tool connections; guests
can take a few minutes to engage on one-on-one business meetings with
people who have knowledge about a specific field of interest for
conversations and counsel that will lead to their development.”

The main summit panel discussions and presentations topics are:

· *Wellness in a fast paced world*

· *Changing the face of leadership in Africa*

· *The new African Narrative*

· *Globalising Africa*

· *Tech changing how we do business*

· *my Story in Music*

· *Evolving with time*
