As a young ambitious woman, your career choice is one of the most significant decisions you’ll ever make. It is important that you equip yourself with the right information to build the professional career of your dreams.
Think about it, would you rather spend your days at a job that leaves you feeling empty? Or where you are fulfilled for the better part of your life?
This is why we at SLA partnered with Darling Nigeria to bring you the Confidence In Action Summits. That will take place in South Africa, Nigeria and Kenya. The summit series kicked off in South Africa, on February 5th and it was a BLAST!
More than 1200 Mzansi queens came together to attend a free learning and networking experience. There were masterclasses, workshops and networking sessions where we saw our SA boss ladies make new connections, and then our Keynote Speaker Nicolette Mashile, made her entrance and taught us all about navigating career turbulence.
All attendees had direct access to some of South Africa’s high profile career experts, including Talent Acquisition & Employer Branding Lead at PepsiCo SSA Candice Martin, Market HR Cluster Head at Google SSA Avanti Maharaj, Talent Acquisitions Specialist at Nestlé Lebogang Mashabela and founder of Pam Cherry Coaching and Consulting Pamela Cherry.
It was 3hrs of interesting talks, coaching and loads of digital connection fun. Our Mzansi mogul ladies showed up, and showed out!
Here is how we took over the digital streets in SA
We learnt about career/ personal development, professional networking and practical advice on building a professional career of your dreams.
The attendees had the opportunity to pick one masterclass or networking session each hour.
They were also coached on how to harness communication skills needed to negotiate job offers, ace job interviews and gain strategies to propel their career forward.
Masterclass 1: How To Find A Job That You Actually Care About Speaker with Candice Martin.
Masterclass 2: How To Position Yourself As The Best Candidate For The Job Speaker with Avanthi Maharaj.
Workshop 1: How to Find A Job That Suits You Coach with Pamela Cherry.
Workshop 2: How To Position Yourself As The Best Candidate For The Job Coach with Lebogang Mashabela.
We Came, put our Confidence In Action and gave out formulas to elevate careers!
The summit had a vibe and more. The moment we went live on Zoom, Google Meet, Youtube and Facebook, we learned, unlearned and relearned, while having an unforgettable experience.
So here’s raising a glass to all our SA boss ladies who made the time, energy and resources that went into planning the Confidence In Action Summit South Africa totally worth it.
