An action-filled programme with a variety of contributors from local and international speakers gave the WEConnect International in South Africa Annual Conference on 11 May, 2017, a particularly memorable character. Inspirational contributions by host Val Davies, Chief Operating Officer, EY, and keynotes Ms Susan Shabangu, Minister for Women in the Presidency, and Chargé d’Affaires of the US Embassy, Jessye Lapenn, emphasised the importance of mentoring, training and connecting women. The event was sponsored by EY, ExxonMobil, MSD, Accenture, IBM, Marriot International, Johnson & Johnson, and Ingersoll Rand.
Programme director Lynette Ntuli (woman business owner and TV presenter) infused the programme with humour and enthusiasm.
