Celebrating Successful Business Women – and Mothers!
Every month, business women around Centurion get together to network and exchange ideas at the Hirsch Centurion branch. As Mother’s Day is celebrated in May, this month was all about celebrating Mothers that work.
Margaret Hirsch, COE of the Hirsch Group welcomed the ladies and spoke about the empowerment of women in the business world, how women can get to the top by being passionate about what they do, believe in themselves and be determined to get there and be successful in business- and in the home!
