Our Networking Events

In a world where we should be more connected than ever, professional networking should really be flourishing and abundantly easy for entrepreneurs to action as part of their marketing strategy to grow their business.

The truth of the matter is that it’s become more difficult for an entrepreneur to:
A) Spare the time in their business to be away from the office for a few hours at a time and
B) Afford the exorbitant costs associated with business networking.

We understand the pressures facing an entrepreneur in today’s economy and have therefore aligned our vision to help address these pressures. Xtraordinary Women prides itself in being a leader in the networking arena and by doing our events online, we decrease the cost of networking events and save you, your most valuable resource, your time!

We will also be providing opportunities to meet face-to-face via our free Cocktails and Networking with our CEO events (hosted in Cape Town) and we will also periodically arrange networking events in various locations in and around Cape Town.

Our Online Networking Sessions are specifically designed to provide you with bite-sized information that can be immediately implemented in your business. These sessions also focus on effective networking and building lasting business relationships. Our Guest Speakers are hand-picked to focus on business topics relevant to today’s marketplace. Our events are hosted online in order for you to network with your fellow entrepreneurs, not matter where they are located. Our networking sessions are recorded and will be available for download.

Online Networking Sessions will be hosted once a month on the second Thursday of the Month.

What People Are Saying About Our Online Networking Events

Rose McClement: Founder of Design Monarchy

Thank you Gwen Serrotti. It was such a privilege to be part of such an innovative initiative. I so enjoyed it and loved meeting the new entrepreneurial peeps. The convenience is actually such a big benefit. I was afraid it might feel to ‘distant ‘ and impersonal. But it was anything but that. Plus, your Networking Presentation was invaluable. I’m looking forward to many more.
