We Are Family

“We are family
I got all my sisters with me”

Remember Sister Sledge?! Today it’s all about our International Women’s Day Summit! I want us to come together on the 6th of March like sisters! And guess what? We are holding this event in English, so everyone can join us!


Women in business face the same challenges and opportunities as men, but they don’t have the networks, the role models and mindset. This is why our Network Academy exists. I personally want to encourage more women to think of themselves as leaders and I believe the best way to do this is by showcasing role models. Because if you can see it, you can be it!

Why do we need to come together like sisters?

The number one reason is that Women-Only-Networks work really well for career women, because:
• We focus on getting more women to meet each other because in today’s market, networking is essential to a fruitful professional life.
• Inspiration is where we start, we share stories by role models that inspire women. What can we learn from them?
• It is a way to build lasting relationships with other ambitious professional women in a way that feels comfortable and an environment that empowers.
• Women’s networks play a vital role in empowering women to work together and break through the glass ceiling. Because they are less about selling and more about sharing.

So you need to work less and network more!
