Social Networking Platform

#WomenInBusiness offers you the networking platform to share your skills, knowledge and passion.  Use this platform to link with like minded entrepreneurial women, locally, provincially and internationally.

#WomenInBusiness Founder and Brand Ambassador, Ali Engelbrecht, encourages supportive relationships and linkages through participation in conferences, training, workshops, online interactions, sound boarding and face to face consultations. 

Our Sound Boarding offers informal ‘mentorship’ in the form of linking members together where you can use one another to ‘bounce’ ideas and discuss your dreams without fear of judgement or criticism.  Its a free value add to being a member of #WomenInBusiness.
