Event Review: Our Amazing May Dinner

The Girl Geek Dinners in Johannesburg have proved to be an extremely successful initiative, which continues to grow from strength-to-strength.

The Girl Geeks have shown their support for the Dinners and our May event was no exception.

 Our venue was the gorgeous Grand Central Cafe in Melrose Arch. The food was fabulous and guests raved about the meal.

 

Mardia van der Walt-Korsten, Regional Head for Middle-East & Africa region atT-Systems gave an inspiring talk on being a woman in business and her personal journey.

 

 

Some key insights from her talk:

  • The fundamental job of a leader is to bring hope to those around you
  • Do something special to differentiate yourself and move from success to significance
  • Balancing work with being a mother is difficult

As always, our Girl Geeks received a lovely goodie bag. A huge thank you to our sponsors: Bodythrills, TLC wipes, Amajoya Sweets, First for Women, Butterfingers cupcakes and Get Smarter. A special mention must be made of Worker Ant, who assist us with all our presentation and design needs.
