This inspiring event, featuring an all-women speakers’ programme, will echo the spirit of the 13th annual Standard Bank Top Women Awards, which took place in August 2016.

Like many industries, retail remains traditionally male-dominated. However, South African retail has seen remarkable growth in female leadership and entrepreneurship in recent years, making this three-hour event both a celebration of success and a strategic workshop for women leaders seeking to access new markets and accelerate growth.

Guests will hear from several respected thought leaders who have overcome retail challenges and achieved their goals in an enduringly tough industry and a currently tough economy. Speakers will cover topics such as “Simplifying retail”, “Buying local”, “The commercial advantage of more women in the retail boardroom”, and more.

Topco Media Director Karla Fletcher says, “The breakfast will empower, inspire, encourage leadership and open up the industry to more women in key decision roles. It will also honour those who have paved the way for emerging women leaders and provide a prestigious yet relaxed networking opportunity.”
