Our 1st Dinner for 2013 was a wonderful success!
We had two lovely speakers for the evening – Dr Julie Taylor from Google and Melanie Minnaar founder of the Twitter Blanket Drive.
- Melanie Minnaar and Dr Julie Taylor
Julie’s talk was around technology, women and Africa. She looked at the opportunities available and what Google is doing to help women enter the tech space. Melanie spoke about using social media for good and the impact that the blanket drive has had, as well as how phenomenally it has grown since inception.
Our venue was the beautiful Gwefey. With a gorgeous view & stunning food, they were wonderful hosts.
