Networker | Community Builder | Events Orientated Entrepreneur

Welcome! I am so pleased you found us!

When I started my journey as an entrepreneur I found it very difficult to navigate the waters of entrepreneurship. It was through truly connecting with others and hosting my first event that I found the power of stories. Each and every person that I have come across has a powerful story to share that inspires others.

At Xtraordinary Women we are dedicated to supporting you on every aspect of your journey and provides a platform for these stories to be told. Be it through our online networking events, where we showcase the best Guest Speakers our county has to offer, or our Success in High Heels Cocktail Evenings, where our Guest Speakers share their success stories.

I invite you to have a look around our website and I look forward to being of service to you.

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 and we will also periodically arrange networking events in various locations in Cape Town.

Our 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 first Thursday of the Month.
