Grow My Business Masterclass returns

The Grow My Business Africa Masterclass is back for the second running and will take place virtually AND physically in Cape Town.

The concept of the Masterclass stems from an Entrepreneur’s frustration of leaving a workshop or business conference inspired, but without deliverables, actionable steps or practical tools to apply in their business.

The objective is not to just inspire SMME’S and emerging entrepreneurs or professionals, but to EDUCATE them and provide tools that they can apply in their business or careers by means of a workbook.

Each attendee receives a Tailored Workbook on:

-Business Growth Strategies

-Pivoting

-Finance and Funding

It gets depressing to work hard and have nothing to show for it. Join us as we learn from marketer, Sbusiso Kumalo, and Leaveil de Fountain from Allan Gray, on how to better position your business for Growth, financial literacy and how to access funding.

Dont’t miss it! Book your tickets here:

About the Masterclass: It is commonplace for entrepreneurs and business leaders to leave a conference feeling inspired, but rarely does one leave a conference with the right tools for change.  The objective of the Grow Your Business Masterclass is to provide you with deliverables, actionable steps and practical tools to apply to your business.

Along with valuable insight from the keynote speakers, conference attendees will leave with a business manual that was made for this conference only that covers topics such as “How to structure your business for SCALE”, “Organisational Culture” and “Finance and Funding”.

Message from the Director

EIMyaJOWsAA9vPF.jpg

Womandla has grown in leaps and bounds this year and I have my generous team of EXCO members to thank.

The journey has been smooth and not without challenges, but these challenges have shaped us to the improved versions of ourselves that we are.

Our year started off with the pilot of the Mentorship Programme at Langa High School in Cape Town, followed by a Sanitary towel drive that was supported nationwide to keep the female learners in school. This exercise taught us about resilience, relationship building and sharpened our communication skills. Our NPO held a Careers Expo at the school with willing companies, to expose learners of the various career options, university courses as well as financial aid available.

Yolanda, who leads the mentorship portfolio, was chosen to attend the World Youth Forum in Egypt this December.

Our Head of STEM was chosen by Codespace, as of one the panelists in STEM for a coding and robotics camp and later in the year nominated for an ITTPSA award under the Social Responsibility category. The STEM department exhibited in the Women in ICT event and hosted a coding workshop for beginners – a job well done!

We held the inaugural Womandla Women in STEM Awards sponsored by Nedbank, during Women’s month and celebrated high achievers in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics in Southern Africa!

The Womandla EXCO was invited to Parliament twice to attend and participate in the Budget vote Speech and the Western Cape Provincial legislature Debate on GBV.  Critical conversations were had, especially regarding the on-going massacre of women in our country. I cannot pen this report without thinking about Uyinene Mrwetyana and many other women and children who lost their lives through gender-based violence this year. May justice prevail in this country.

Part of our strategy for 2020 is to branch out of Cape Town and further our reach to our Durban, East London and Johannesburg supporters and collaborate with other partners in Africa in our respective areas and continue with our skills development, nation-building initiatives and activism.

All these efforts listed above could not have happened without the support of the amazing team, followers and families, City of Cape Town, the DG Murray Trust, Maitland Group, Aspire Solutions, Global Kinetic and various venue sponsors, volunteers and donors. Thank you to the media Massiv Metro, Cape Talk, LeadSA, Radio Pulpit, Trace, Afternoon Express and Bizcommunity and not to mention social media for amplifying our voice to the masses.

Sithi Nangamso!

Wishing you a prosperous New Year.

Regards,

Sam Gqomo
