Discover your wings and take off at the 2014 Unleashed Woman Born to Fly Conference

You have been on the edge for a while, now it’s time to take a leap and fly at this year’s Unleashed Woman “Born to Fly” Conference on Saturday the 4th October 2014 at the Oak Leaf, Sandton. Now in its fourth year, the conference brings together woman, leaders in their respective industries, to network, share their experiences and look towards making a difference in the broader society.

Bringing a vital mix of insight and inspiration to this year’s conference is the dynamic Nonkululeko Gobodo, Executive Chairman of the accounting firm SizweNtsalubaGobodo and Standard Bank Business Woman of the Year 2014. Joining her will be Annie McWalter, CEO of The Hope Factory, a non-profit company that specialises in enterprise and supplier development and growing South African entrepreneurs.

“This conference is aimed at those who’ve been contemplating stepping out into bigger and better things in their lives, vocations and careers, but excuses or the busyness of life has gotten the better of them that they are unwarily settling for a life less than what they could potentially live,” says Lerato Thekiso, founding member of Unleashed Woman.

Unleashed Woman, a Non-Profit Organisation (NPO), was established in 2011 by a group of professional black women looking to inspire other women to realise their own personal potential. Through regular conferencing, mentorship and educational initiatives they continually aim to create thought provoking conversations.

Since inception Unleashed Woman has used their collective expertise to partner with, and support other non-profit organisations, offering a turn-key service that ensures sustainability and functionality. While the nonprofit sector in South Africa is active, vibrant and determined to make a difference, it also faces many challenges including the global recession, reduced government funding and support and increased competition. Despite willing, many initiatives dwindle and disappear due to funding issues, capacity challenges and the lack of sustainability models.

Through the working, supportive partnerships Unleashed Woman have been able to share a number of success stories with life-changing initiatives across the country, including the Shine Like A Diamond Girl Child Foundation (based in Limpopo) and the Awakening Conference initiative (based in North West).

The Unleashed Woman Born To Fly Conference 2014 takes place on Saturday 4 October at the Oak Leaf, Sandton from 09h00 to 12h00. Registration costs R220 and seats are limited. For more information or to RSVP contact Unleashed Woman at 084 926 8481 or info@theunleashedwoman.org.
