During the opening remarks, Ndjaronguru mentioned why such platforms are so important for every woman. “'The Little Black Dress' symbolises the embodiment of power, confidence, strength and sophistication.

Black is an incredibly strong colour that is why it is often seen at formal and prestigious events. It projects authority, arousing people's senses with elegance, sensuality and power. That is why I personally think this is a great theme for our event to always stand in our power and to always project our strength and have a profound security and self-confidence and carry ourselves with class,” she said.

Marketing expert Marlize Maree delivered a powerful message around women and their femininity and owning their brand in every space they find themselves in.

“We can be amazing brands and change people's lives. Each of us have special traits which are embedded in us or those that we were born with. We have to find it,” she shared.

Keynote speaker and CEO of Letshego Namibia Ester Kali invited the ladies in the audience to her early childhood years and illustrated so many examples of how her confidence was shattered.

“Confidence fuels positive energy that urges you to take action and allow you to follow your dream. I had a dream, and said I wanted to work for the bank to an extent I was told I was not able to and today I work and manage one. If you are confident in yourself, not even the sky is the limit,” she mentioned.

The women in attendance applauded the organisers for hosting the event.

Various ladies encouraged this to be a regular event as it enlightens, informs and inspires women from all walks of life.

The ceremony was directed by founder of Poiyah Media, Ilke Platt, who teamed up with Divas and Gents Fitness, saying its brand aligned with their core values.

“Such events that we collaborate with and that resonate the same goal and objective and it was just the natural thing to do, to merge forces with each other,” she said.

The end of the event saw many give-aways from female business owners to give a touch of excitement on the glamourous side of the event.
