from our founder
Dear Potential Sponsor
I was blessed with a second chance at living my dream and I am asking you to invest in the future of women so that they can do the same. Do you believe in second chances? Are you aware of how many women are struggling to live with purpose? Do you know how many women don’t believe in their talent, their beauty, or their message to their community? I am living my purpose and dream of being an entrepreneur and more importantly, leading, inspiring, supporting and recognising ordinary South African women to do Extraordinary things and helping them to tell their story because all our stories are Extraordinary.
Since our launch in 2007 our main event,
Success in High Heels Cocktail Evenings, offers an invaluable opportunity to learn from the stories and experiences of women in leadership roles in their communities and help encourage women to use their lives to make a difference and live with purpose. We look forward to having you join us as our partners to inspire, lead, motivate and support women through stories and lessons from those who’ve had the courage to take the journey ahead of others to expand their capacity, to receive greater wealth, optimal health and love
and purpose in their lives. Together we can all make a significance difference, but singularly it takes a little longer. to make a difference and live with purpose.

I had the privilege of speaking at the Xtraordinary Women cocktail evening 'Success In High Heels' in November 2011 and have to say it was one of best organised events I have spoken at in a while. Gwens' attention to detail - from the venue, to the catering to the amazing goodie bags - was fantastic. To see over 100 women at an event, all ready to be inspired and network is something very special. I speak at events around the country and Xtraordinary Women certainly know how to put together extraordinary events for women that are inspiring, uplifting and of incredible value. I hope to speak at another event soon!

I just love what Gwen is doing through her channel Xtraordinary women. As mothers, Career women, caregivers, co-coordinators, wives, ex wives, taxi drivers, mediators, daughters, sisters and so much more we rush buy one another at such a pace we forget to connect with other women experiencing the many challenges we all seem to have in common. These events and uplifting testimonials that are shared with women that attend, give us the opportunity to stop and breath with the profound relief that we are not alone. Someone else understands. Well done Gwen, for making a difference in such a very very big way.
Nicole Morris – Director of the House of Fashion
Hi Gwen, What a fantastic experience working with you on the Success in High Heels event. As one of your guest speakers I felt included, encouraged and appreciated every step of the way. Your organisation was fantastic, your choice of venue magnificent and your sense of humour unfailing. It's been a real pleasure working with you. Thank you! I wish you every success in the future. Warm regards Robyn
Thanks to Gwen for inviting me to speak on how to 'Discover your personal brand and professional image' at the Xtraordinary Woman Blouberg networking breakfast. Not only was the audience delightful, but I was impressed with how well the event was organised and run. I first met Gwen years ago when Xtraordinary Woman was merely her vision and dream. It's wonderful to see how she has turned her dream into a reality and is inspiring and supporting women in business.

Gwen Serrotti is an extraordinary leader, supporter and networker. She personifies her brand. Her business network is head and shoulders above others in Cape Town because of her attention to detail and personal care towards her members. The support received by Xtraordinary Women and Gwen Serrotti has helped me and my business grow immensely. Xtraordinary Women help their members grow through inspirational meetings, leadership, 'tribe' support, and acknowledgement and recognition. I can highly recommend this network under Gwen's leadership.
