The Margaret Hirsch Woman in Business Achiever Award finalist for March was announced at Hirsch’s monthly Ladies Networking Morning recently, and Karen Roos received this prestigious award amidst much excitement. Karen is the co-owner of Karma Events, Catering and Function Hire – a company she started in 2012. She has been in the hospitality industry for more than 25 years. A key building block of the Company has been service to the community and her involvement and support given to the “Feed the Child” charity, testifies to this.
Guest Speaker was Kotie Potgieter, owner of MiND (Mastery individual Neuro Design), who deals with people development through neuroscience. The title of Kotie’s talk was “Your Amazing Neurological Design”. She explained the importance of understanding how your unique brain works, in order to answer the question “How am I Smart” – as we are all smart in different ways. We are bombarded with huge amounts of information daily, and there are certain factors, such as stress, which can affect our ability to remember things. Once we know the way our brain processes information, we can determine what our natural strengths are – or “our Genius”.
Kotie had the audience participate in an exercise which determined which side of the brain is dominant, and her message was met with much enthusiasm and interest.
The next Ladies Networking Morning will be held on Wednesday 20 May 2015.
