The annual women’s conference will this year be held under a different theme, which aims at empowering women of Botswana to venture into business.
It will try and improve the network relationship for the women of Botswana together with other entrepreneurs of the region so as to get a piece of the World Cup in 2010.
Omni Consulting has in the last two years held women’s conferences under different themes.
Last year, the theme was “Women Driving the Global Economy” and Ms Rebecca Gonzales from the USA-International Relations was among the guest speakers at the event.
The speaker for this year’s conference is the South African High Commissioner, Dikgang Moopeloa.
In an interview with Sunday Standard the founder of Omni Consulting, Ouma Rammidi, said, “The guest speaker and the theme was chosen looking at the fact that next year all roads lead to South Africa for the World Cup.”
The theme for this year is “2010 FIFA World Cup and Beyond”, which is very appropriate as the majority of the people will be caught in the World Cup fever and thus business is bound to boom even for the small businesswomen.
Rammidi elaborated that the plan is for the small entrepreneurs to grow beyond the World Cup and not to be just part of the statistics of World Cup fever. This will mean that those who take partnership with other South African companies will continue with their relationship even after the tournament is over.
The conference is aimed at bringing businesswomen of Botswana together and discussing initiatives of how to benefit from the world cup. The conference is expected to give the women a platform for business opportunities that will help them in how to make their services available in South Africa.
The same conference will be honoured by the representative of the Citizen Entrepreneur Development Agency (CEDA) and Local Entrepreneur Authority (LEA).
These organizations will take turns in teaching the attendants on how to seek finance in either to start a new business or expand the already existing one.
Rammidi is not new to women empowerment as she once worked with the women’s exposition and will this year be present at the women’s exposition scheduled for later on this year.
Rammidi also helps women find finance for their business either from LEA or CEDA. She is also the mastermind behind Opal D├®cor which has been doing well for the past four years.
The seats to this conference are limited to 100, thus all those who are interested are advised to buy tickets in advanced to avoid disappointment. The low number is meant to create intimacy between the honourable guests and the participants.
The tickets can be obtained from the Omni Consulting offices.
