Joyce Sudarkasa, a small business operations specialist, might be a new South African citizen, but she is certainly not a new kid on the block in business.
Armed with extensive experience in sales, marketing, customer service and strategy implementation, Sudarkasa, pictured, has made her mark in business and changed some practices to encourage growth and stability.
Her company, Phetoho Management Consultants, has assisted many businesses with internal branding challenges.
Sudarkasa is also chairperson of the Soweto branch of the Businesswomen's Association.
After completing her business studies at Florida A&M University in the US, she completed a comprehensive bank training programme. She moved to Washington DC, where she assumed an influential position at a national cooperative financial institution.
"These positions moulded my finance knowledge and made me a sought-after source of small business finance and operating solutions," she says.
Sudarkasa will be the main speaker at next week's Sowetan Women's Club. She will share her insight into the current economic meltdown and how it is affecting small businesses.
The event will be held at The Pyramid Conference and Venue Centre in Johannesburg on Thursday.
Sharing the podium will be Tshepo Selomo, make-up artist and co-founder of Karibu Day Spa, and Kathleen Nthabiseng Monareng, a family law expert.
