Mrs South Africa hosted a successful empowerment workshop and Annual Women’s Breakfast over the weekend of 25-26 March 2023 at Emperors Palace, with over 820 women in attendance. The programme offers semi-finalists a chance to receive mentorship, expert guidance, and advice from experienced industry leaders through the MBA of Life, giving participants the tools they need to thrive.

The intensive one-day workshop featured exceptional guest speakers and industry experts who shared their insights into online content creation, social media management, media and public relations, sponsorship acquisition and management, and emotional intelligence. The Annual Women’s Breakfast offered an opportunity for women to come together, share their experiences, motivate each other, and learn from Mrs South Africa’s National Board of Directors and Alumni.

The sold-out event was a remarkable success, with the presence of reigning Mrs South Africa Queen Palesa Matjekane, Chairman of the Board Matapa Maila, and prominent key note speaker Alison Botha. Headline partner Dallmayr Coffee sponsored fabulous goody bags, MSC Cruises announced the first-ever Mrs South Africa Queen’s Cruise, and iStyle and Kryolan makeup South Africa hosted an exciting best-dressed competition.

The organisation also launched the very first Mrs South Africa book which showcases the many inspiring stories of the 2022 Finalists. Joani Johnson, CEO of Mrs South Africa, said that the journal stands as testimony to what can be achieved by a group of powerful women if they stand together, and how their lives can be transformed within the space of a single year simply by taking the leap and entering the Mrs South Africa programme.

For over twelve years, Mrs South Africa has remained steadfast in its commitment to uplifting and celebrating women from all walks of life. The organisation prides itself on being transparent, fair, and ethical in all its endeavours, and celebrating the immense strength and talent of South African women from all walks of life.
