It is my utmost pleasure to welcome you to the 2024 Standard Bank Top Women EmpowHER Conference kicking off in the vibrant city of Cape Town! As the CEO of Topco Media, I am honored to host this groundbreaking event, dedicated to celebrating and empowering women in business

The Standard Bank Top Women EmpowHER conference is more than just a gathering – it’s a powerful platform for women leaders to connect, share their experiences, and inspire one another. The term “EmpowHER” encapsulates our commitment to fostering an environment where women can thrive, lead, and make impactful changes in their industries and communities.
