“The concept of ‘work-life balance’ is a fleeting idea for a Bombshell [woman]. Instead, a focus on work-life success – where her time and energy shifts based on the rotating demands of each area of her life – is far more realistic.”
– Amber Hurdle, Brand Strategist, Leadership Consultant, Business Coach, Professional Speaker, and Author of The Bombshell Business Women.
We treated Birchwood’s beautiful businesswomen to a delicious three course meal, a star-studded line-up of inspiring speakers and live entertainment to celebrate the strength of women in business, the overcoming of adversity and individual achievement.
We set the tone for the event with a red-carpet welcome at our popular onsite restaurants Phomolong and the new Boma; to the mellow tunes of a saxophonist, magic tricks and welcome drinks from aerial bartenders.
Jason Greer, well-known actor, TV presenter and voice over artist, was the MC for the day as he welcomed guest speaker, Zipho Sikhakhane to share her inspiring story of growth, from a poor township in KZN to business success. Sikhakhane has held many management positions in leading industry corporations worldwide and was first black South African to complete an MBA at Stanford University in the USA.
Rounding off the day was former X Factor winner, Steven Lee Lewis, who got the room dancing to his electric live percussion, smooth keys and backup dancers.
Thank you to all those who joined us and for your continued support of the Birchwood Hotel!
