NCCI to host Women in Business Conference

The event is a platform to forge critical connections

03 September 2018 | Events

The second Women in Business Conference will be hosted in Swakopmund this week.

The event organised by the Namibia Chamber of Commerce and Industry (NCCI) Swakopmund, in partnership with Bank Windhoek, Old Mutual and Air Namibia, will take place on 6 September.

It is an opportunity specifically created to give women in business a platform to forge critical connections in the business community in order to help their businesses thrive, especially in these challenging times.

“Women’s empowerment is not a women only issue, but an issue for all of us as a whole. It is an established fact that empowerment of women improves economic and social development of a society as a whole, therefore the NCCI is committed to gender equality and we invite women, in all industries, to join us for this special event,” said the branch and marketing manager at NCCI Swakopmund, Paulina Mbango.

According to Jacquiline Pack from Bank Windhoek, women are a powerful force in the Namibian economy and a smart choice for businesses to invest in.

“This platform will empower delegates to learn and share their experiences, especially regarding the current challenges facing them in our economy. While we strive to reach our full potential and build businesses we dream of, contributing to society and leaving a legacy, we are also aware of the other, equally fulfilling roles of mother, nurturer, provider, wife, daughter, sister, chef and councillor. These roles also contribute to an empowered woman,” she said.

The event will be held at the Swakopmund Hotel and Entertainment Centre and will feature eight distinguished speakers, all of whom are well-known experts in their fields of expertise. Topics will include business start-up financing, funding and investments, the legal side of business, marketing for SMEs and business survival strategies for the current economy.

Speakers will include Ujama Mushimba (the founder of Good Women, Good Business Start-Up fund), Estelle Tjipuka (entrepreneur and owner of Kauai Franchise) and Afra Shimming-Chase (financial wealth management expert) amongst other experts in the financial, legal and media industries.

The event will be a valuable investment for any women entrepreneurs in the early stages of their business or women who have established businesses and are looking to take them to the next level. To find out more about the event, contact NCCI Swakopmund Branch on 064 406 687 or [email protected]
