*Internationally and Locally Acclaimed Powerhouses to Keep Patrons In Good Company at the Business Festival Curated for Women x Women *
As the much anticipated #IGCExperience
business festival gets closer, the patrons can expect an action-packed day
filled with master classes, empowering talks, and robust panel discussions
related to gender diversity and inclusivity issues by some of South Africa,
pan-Africa and international renowned individuals who are passionate about
creating a gender balanced continent both economically and socially.
The* In Good Company Experience *second edition set to take place on 26
September 2019, at Steyn City is a platform created to afford women in
business and corporate an opportunity to participate in building the
country and continent that is inclusive, especially to woment. It also
celebrates and recognises women who have been instrumental in creating a
better world for all.
Event goers can expect intense, robust, motivating and moving discussions,
and hopefully take some learnings home and implement them for their own
growth and development.
*Dineo Moeketsi-Langa*, a multi-talented woman, best known for her role on
one of Mzansi’s best telenovelas will kick off the event as the MC, and
also moderate some of the panels on the day. Her intriguing story shows the
journey of a strong woman who has not only embraced her heritage and
culture, but who does not shy away from playing her role in empowering
women. #IGCExperience patrons can expect deep and challenging conversations
during panel discussions, and get a bit of motivation to keep forging ahead
despite any challenges.
The world should not dictate to others living in it. Many people are gifted
with powers of healing, but hide it because they fear being judged by peers
– Moeketsi-Langa shows how each of her callings is a blessing that needs to
be embraced. The #IGCExperience program is that safe net for women who want
to learn and let out their fears, while building each other in an effort to
create a better place for all.
The panel discussion topics that attendees can expect include:
With recent attacks on women, it cannot be ignored how this impacts one’s
mental and physical health. Fear and paranoia have become the main
ingredients in women’s lives and it is important to delve into matters that
contribute towards better living. The *Self Care & Wellness panel* is
crucial as it is aimed at demonstrating the importance of balance at work
and home. If we look after ourselves, we will be able to perform better.
