Thank you!! I recently received this notification and wondered who was so very generous to nominate me for a second time to this most prestigious event - Was it YOU? If so, thank you!
Secondly, I would like to bring to your attention the note in green below.....What can we as WOMEN do together? What kind of huge impact would you like to be involved with that requires more people to make it happen? Collaboration is a mighty powerful concept that I believe we should be embracing.
For myself I have a passion for the peace of global women and children. What is your vision? What could we be doing together rather than in isolation?
"Dear Dr Johnson
It gives me great pleasure to congratulate you on being selected as one of the semi finalists for the 2015 Most Influential Women in Business and Government Awards. Your achievements thus far - the meaningful contribution you have made in your industry and the positive impact this has had on our country - makes us proud to be associated with you.
Please feel free to attend the Africa's Most Influential Women in Business and Government Awards functions, which will be held in Johannesburg on 28 July. ......
......Symposium on 19-20 October where business leaders from across the continent will join together to network and unpack various topics. This promises to be an event not to be missed, filled with top speakers, promotion of cross border trade and networking. This will be followed by our Continental Gala Dinner on 21 October where the winners in each sector will be announced for the continent!
These promise to be enriching, meaningful events that will also offer you the opportunity to network with top businesswomen and government leaders.
Bring along the women in your team and invite women from other organisations - the opportunities for growth and development are immense.
Remember to book early, you will receive your invitation to these prestigious events in due course.
Finalists for Africa's Most Influential Women in Business and Government Awards will be announced during the month of June".
I would love to hear your thoughts on this my proposal to you as to collaboration. Drop me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line - WOMEN Collaboration. I look forward to it!
