WSWB: Women in Business Cuppa for CANSA networking event #4

Hello World. It’s time to Break out my fourth Women in Business Cuppa for CANSA post. If you are interested in reading about the others please click here, here and here to see how these events have grown!

We partnered with the PepperClub Hotel & Spa for this event . A five star luxury brand and it was evident from the moment we walked in. The staff took care of everything from set up, technical issues to break down. I knew who was assigned to the event when shifts changed, I was visited by the banqueting manager to see if I was happy with everything and because of all of this I was two hours ahead of schedule and could enjoy lunch before the event started, a luxury I have never had before.

Women Supporting Women in Business (WSWB) is a feature on the blog which inspired me to pilot The Women in Business Cuppa for CANSA event for The Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA). The feature highlights powerhouses who are doing amazing things in their field and I wanted to connect these women & start conversations in real life.

Putting together this type of event is exhausting and would not be possible without our partners. Our second collab was with The Cape Town Hotel School who I am lucky enough to have worked with twice now. They were responsible for our cupcakes, with my only brief being “PINK”!

Another crucial collab is our speakers. Our panel of speakers for this event was resident life coach,Lynne Kock owner of Evolution Incorporated Coaching & Consulting and Loren Lee Langenhoven, personal stylist & owner of StylebyLoren.

And then to the thing that people love receiving the most at this event  but the thing that  gives me the most grey hairs. The goody bag. Getting goodies to fill this amaaazing bag is usually a nightmare. But my trusty sponsors Cosmopolitan, Woolworths, Benefit Cosmetics SA , Prestige, Reydiant Natural Skincare ,The Bees Knees, Cape Town Comedy Club and The Herb & Spice Factory Shop always send over the most beautiful goodies to give away.

Recently I have also introduced an intimate shopping experience for attendees which gives business owners an opportunity to exhibit their wares and brand at the event.

As proud as I am of this event, what I enjoy most is that it has turned us all into a sisterhood, a #squad not afraid to listen or ask for help from a group of amazing ladies & know that help will be given but so will heart, soul and passion. As always thank you for reading & for supporting this event xx
