VWEEP/WLP at Yale 2016 October

Attending the 2016 VWEEP was one of the best decisions that I have made in terms of my personal development. The programme was so insightful! I particularly loved the diversity of the participants who all senior and have had fabulous experiences in their countries. The session on the role of women leaders in Africa was excellent! I was fascinated by the progress on the United Nations SDG’s, particularly women empowerment issues and their forward-looking plan. The biggest take from this presentation for me was ‘what space can we create for young girls to grow?’ The speakers were well prepared and covered their topics well. The topics were also relevant to the current business environment and it was fascinating to see the similarities of issues amongst the countries represented. I would like to commend Career Nation for putting this excellent programme together and for the meticulous planning involved. I would definitely recommend the Programme to other women!

My VWEEP experience was awesome. I was amazed at the information and learning I took away. You made this program relevant to us back home and realize we can contribute as leaders wherever we are. I was particularly excited with Ambassador Robin Sander’s presentation, who seems to know more about African countries. I would highly recommend the Programme to other women executives!

Someone once said ‘Life is change, growth is optional, choose wisely’. I did when I made the best decision to attend the CareerNation’s Visiting Women Executive Exchange Program (VWEEP) at Yale School of Management’s Women. It was  life changing experience that made me reflect on my best-self and redefine my future. From Africa centred sessions to generic global sessions covering three thematic areas ‘Getting Leadership Perspectives’; ‘Building Strategic Thinking’ and ‘Leading High Performance Teams’. I feel prepared to lead in any position.
