This annual conference draws together esteemed business leaders who are passionate about exemplifying and driving gender empowerment. This year’s programme showcased some of the most successful stories and strategies being implemented around the development of leadership roles for women and network influencers who are serious about economy-wide progress.
Margaret inspired with her talk on; Empowering Young Female Entrepreneurs. “Having run a successful business for the past 38 years I have made a lot of money, however I never felt fulfilled until I made it my life’s mission to empower and mentor young entrepreneurs to be able to tell their own success stories. It is our responsibility as business women to touch as many lives as possible and leave behind a legacy of knowledge that will effect for eternity” said Margaret Hirsch.
