The winner for September is Karen de Villiers.  Karen is a CA and owner of Bizzacc, as well as President of BNI Fusion Chapter in Pretoria.  Her business offers Outsourced Financial Management, Financial Management Workshops, Accounting, Taxation Services, Financial Statements and Statutory Audits.  Unfortunately Karen had a last- minute business emergency in Bloemfontein, and was not able to take acceptance of her Award – which will be handed to her at the next Ladies Networking Event.

The Guest Speaker for today was Annie Coetzee.  Annie is an International Speaker, Human Intelligence Specialist and Self-Empowerment Author. She has 16 years’ experience in the Public and Corporate arena in the field of Human Development, which included high level Motivational ‘Power Hours’ and Inspirational In-House Workshops.

The Topic of Annie’s talk was titled ‘Transformation from the Inside out’ where she emphasised the fact that to change our circumstances, we firstly need to change our thinking.  She spoke about the Truth about our belief systems – and how positive self-talk and affirmations are extremely important, and should be done on a daily basis.  Annie is working with some older people, and stressed that if they could change – anybody could change.  Between our current reality and our vision, there is a journey – and we are being drawn to what we ‘activate’ in our subconscious mind through visualising and constant affirmation.  We need to realise that we are constantly being influenced by the media and even our culture, family and friends influence our belief systems.  To overcome negative influences we need to set goals, have a vision (vision boarding is excellent), and read books that can positively influence us.  Imagine what is possible, and then act in excellence.   Annie interspersed the talk with some fun songs – getting everybody to sing and dance together – adding that it is important to add emotion to our beliefs.

We had some lovely compliments from the ladies attending the event, and everybody had a great time.

Miele was kind enough to partner with us, and supply all the eats for the morning.  A big thank you goes to the Miele team – and especially to Liezil van Wyk.

As always we had some lovely lucky draws, with extra gifts sponsored by Annique, Miglio and The Print Factory.
