The Marie Claire Power Summit—#MCPowerSummit2018—will take place on Wednesday, 18 July at The Lyric at Gold Reef City in Johannesburg from 08h00 – 15h30. This one-day power conference, featuring keynote speakers and interactive panel discussions on the issues that matter right now, will also provide networking opportunities for taking action.
Attendees of the Marie Claire Power Summit, in collaboration with the Nelson Mandela Foundation, which this year launches the Nelson Mandela Centenary programme to mark 100 years since Mandela’s birth, will learn what it takes to be a leader from today’s most prominent trailblazers and change-makers, including Nomzamo Mbatha (actress and Audi South Africa Brand Ambassador), Redi Tlhabi (author and media personality), Terry Pheto (actress), Panashe Chigumadzi (novelist), Lindiwe Mazibuko (politician), Uche Pézard (CEO of Luxe Corp and Founder of Luxury Connect Africa), Aisha Pandor (co-founder of SweepSouth) and so many more.
Make lasting connections
Be inspired by their plans to take action in their own communities; and make lasting connections with likeminded leaders and cultural icons from South Africa and abroad. The Marie Claire Power Summit 2018 will focus on the issues readers care about most— gender equality, career, business and activism—which aims to leave participants motivated and empowered.
‘We at Marie Claire South Africa are proud to launch the first-ever #MCPowerSummit2018,’ says Marie Claire Brand Director, Emilie Gambade. ‘Our aim is to celebrate the collective power of women – which is at the core of what Marie Claire stands for – and highlight the worldwide shift in the way women are campaigning for change. We want this summit to be the source of inspiration and support that connects and empowers women across our continent’.
According to Asif Hoosen, Head of Marketing and Product at Audi South Africa, a progressive partner to the event, ‘The Marie Claire Power Summit also resonates with what Audi stands for; we are a South African brand at heart, so being able to inspire other South Africans in this way is a unique opportunity. Audi is a brand committed to driving progress – so being able to help our audiences realise personal progress is very rewarding.’
