Hirsch’s Silverlakes recently hosted their monthly business networking event where they provide a platform for business-minded people to come together to network and also help to uplift and empower each other.
Margaret Hirsch, Chief Operations Executive of the Hirsch Group, was the surprise host for the morning and welcomed the guests and introduced Guest Speaker, Wilna Grobler.
Commented Hirsch’s Tsz Yan Lau, “ Wilna is the owner of Business Women Unite and she has a passion to grow women in business and communities. She is also one of Hirsch’s Centurion’s Margaret Hirsch Women in Business finalists and will be attending the gala dinner on Friday with fellow nominees. Her topic this morning was “How to network effectively”.
Wilna touched on how one can achieve an elevated 30 second pitch that’ll leave a good impression for a lifetime. She also created a vivid scenario where one must imagine they’re in an elevator with Richard Branson and they can pitch their business idea to him.
The function ended with all attendees introducing their business for 30 seconds by applying Wilna’s tips and tricks. Afterwards, there was a lucky draw for a Hirsch’s cookbook, and this was followed by attendees swapping business cards over coffee.
