Winning this month’s Margaret Hirsch Woman in Business Competition was Marlize le Roux, Agency owner of 3 Biolink Centres in Pretoria. Biolink are Concentration Centres, and are the leaders in behavioural, cognitive and educational training. They make use of different bio-feedback exercises helping students to increase focus, concentration and become more consistent when performing tasks. Marlize’s team have been part of the Top 3 Agents nationally for 3 years running.
The Guest Speaker at the event was Louise Niemann, who aims to inspire girls and women to see and believe the best about themselves. Louise explained that until the self-image held internally is a positive one, a person cannot grow into the best version of themselves – empowered and confident. Louise gave a very emotional and inspirational talk, sharing from her own struggles and victories – she is currently a Mrs Gauteng and Mrs Africa finalist.
After a most motivational and inspirational message, each of the businesswomen were given the opportunity to present themselves and their business in a 30-second ‘elevator pitch’. Afterwards the opportunity was given to network over a cappuccino and light refreshments.
