Sowetan Women's Club is back. Next Thursday at 6pm it will host an event to remember at the Turffontein Racecourse in Johannesburg.
Under the theme Celebrating Excellence, women can look forward to an inspirational and motivational evening.
TV personality and breast cancer survivor Lillian Dube will share her story, while renowned businesswoman and motivational speaker Angie Makwetla, pictured, will deliver the keynote address.
Makwetla, former head of the Businesswomen's Association and founder and chief executive of Makwetla and Associates, has pioneered black public relations companies in the local PR industry.
Makwetla has extensive business experience, including 15 years with IBM. She started the first black-owned computer training academy in South Africa in 1988.
In 2001 Makwetla's work in the media and communications won her the Women of Strategy Award for her efforts to develop a better community. She was also a finalist in the media and communications category of the Shoprite Checkers Woman of the Year Awards.
She is chairman of Education Africa, a trustee of the Market Theatre Foundation and founder and president of the Concerned Professional Women's Forum.
Sowetan marketing manager Lorraine Mofokeng said: "There are lots of wonderful prizes to be won, including a complete makeover by image consultant Doris Msibi, cash prizes and designer shoes from House of Phindi K."
South Africa's queen of gospel, Rebecca Malope, will entertain guests.
