Elmarie has over 24 years of experience in various fields of media, communications and training. Although her profile has a very wide experience set, she is qualified in the Marketing field, where her initial direction was, and landed up in training and development due to her passion for transformation and skills development in the social economical investment direction. 

Elmarie started her talk by expressing the importance of your own brand by explaining the Key Factors to Branding Yourself, including: Creating Understanding: If you don’t brand yourself, someone else will. Opportunities: Stand in front of the pack. Progressive Mindset: Generate brand awareness through Networking! Know Yourself: Define your brand, become an expert. Uniqueness: What is it that you want to be known for? Availability vs. Readiness: Be the one that is Ready and Available to take that promotion.

After Elmarie’s talk each of the networkers was given the opportunity to present themselves and their business in a 30-second ‘elevator pitch ’, followed by some lucky draws, networking, sharing of business cards and enjoying some refreshments.If you would like to take advantage of this amazing networking opportunity, contact Letitia Haywood on This email address is being protected from spambots.
