My dear talented ladies, thanks again for making first SETI event a success! The after work was fun and still helpful. Connecting and sharing experiences with women from different walks of life was truly empowering.
After a playful icebreaker and proper “mingling” time we were inspired by three insightful speakers:
Hottensiah Muchai (Broadcast journalist, Singer, Songwriter and motivational speaker) shared her experience as a media personality in Austria, showcasing the stories of diaspora through her show “Diaspora Colors”. She described her journey as a young woman determined to fulfill her of her dreams as a performing artist. In her quest for fulfilment and self-discovery she mentioned the lessons she learnt along the way: Persistence, Focus and bringing out the best in others allowed her achieve her purpose.
Cyndi Moyo (Engineer, Founder of the Lean in Circles in Vienna, CEO of HeadLo) as a strong advocate for networking and mutual support gave valuable and practical tips in order to effectively network and reach out professional and or business goals. Mentioning the typical mistakes made by women when dealing with their careers, Cyndi Moyo stressed the need to be strategic and intentional when it comes to building and expanding their networks.
Louise Deininger (Author, Award winning African conceptual artist, Founder of GYCO) emphasized the key roles of self-leadership, mindfulness and money consciousness in the process of unlocking our full potential. Drawing on her experience as the president of a the Global Youth Conference Uganda, Louise Deininger explained how art empowered young adults by transforming their mindset to break the vicious cycle of economic dependency, cultural decline, and collective trauma.
Once again big up to my ladies! To be continued…
