Hirsch’s Fouways recently hosted local entrepreneurs for their monthly Women in Business Networking event. The speaker for the morning was Karen van Zyl, who spoke about the steps in discovering ones sales confidence. 

Commented Hirsch’s Marjone Barnard “Karen is a prominent female entrepreneur in South Africa and she comes from a strong sales background. She is the co-founder and CEO of VA Connect as well as SnappSales. Shestarted her session with a quote: “A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new. She  focused on the 9 day sales sprint for individuals to follow. The steps that she focused on in detail were; LinkedIn, Connect, Mind feed, Boosters & Breakers, Healthy Body, Productivity and Project Management, Network and lastly Reflection.”

After the talk, networkers were given the opportunity to present themselves and their businesses in a 60-second elevator pitch. This was followed by a lucky draw for a free consultation session with Julie, networking, sharing of business cards and enjoying refreshments.
