Due to developments linked to the COVID-19, Future Females announced that it will take its events online.

According to Future Females Swakopmund ambassador, Beatrice Schultz, ticket holders for the initial event, which was supposed to take place at a local hotel, were refunded.

The event, titled ‘Management and Mindset’ was then rescheduled and moved online allowing viewers to tune in and participate from a safe distance.

“I decided to make this first experience free of charge, so that everyone at home could have the chance to participate and get the feeling of the community which was created, whether it was physically or digitally,’ said Schultz.

Over 30 people from all over the country tuned in this past Thursday night, when Beatrice went live and virtual with her two speakers Maggy Sam and Panduleni Shiimi.

The event was hosted by Jerine Gebhardt and Carene Smith, who added a relatable, warm and creative connection for the viewers.

The Swakopmund team also gave two local entrepreneurs a platform to pitch their business.

The new event format was supported by the software tool Zoom, which allows participants to join the speakers and host conveniently from their laptops or phone screens.

Participants could win one of the two giveaways, sponsored by the entrepreneurial speakers during the virtual session.

Another online tool called Toasty, was used to facilitate networking in a digital manner. Attendees were able to connect via the software.

By using tools like Toasty and the live chat, Future Females Namibia managed to implement the important element of networking into their offering.

The next Future Females event titled ‘Money: Digital Marketing’, will take place online on 23 April. It will cost N$65 to take part in the event.

The broadcast link will again be in a format supported by the Zoom software, which will be made available to participants upon payment.
Future Females’ mission is to support female entrepreneurs.
