In 2017, what mountain are you climbing?
17 March 2017
It is often said that every mountain top is within reach, if you just keep on climbing. The most important concept attached to this notion is that it is not the mountain we conquer, but ourselves.
While tears are made and sweat is dropped, conquering the mountain is nothing but sheer happiness, accomplishment and, something you haven’t quite felt before, a sense of pride.
With that being said, Gauteng Women in Insurance (GWII) hosted an event at The Venue in Melrose Arch on 16 March with the theme ‘In 2017, what mountain are you climbing?’ with Marsh as the main sponsor.
GWII members were treated to canapés and drinks, while guest speaker, Gerry Rantseli Elsdon encouraged and uplifted the ladies with an inspirational and motivational talk. Thank you Guy Carpenter for sponsoring the sweet treats (nougat) for the ladies and to Allianz for sponsoring the welcome drinks.
A charitable cause
Those attending were asked to bring along a box of panty pads or cash donations, as GWII members always supports charity work. All proceeds were donated to Caring4girls, one of the charities Elsdon supports.
The GWII committee would like to thank all the GWII members for their donations. We are truly grateful for the huge amount of panty pads and cash received. And as always a big thank you to Insure Group, who kindly donated R5000 to Caring4Girls.
A few lucky ladies walked away with prizes donated by sponsors. We would like to thank the sponsors who contributed to the prizes. The sponsors were:
Crawford & Company
ELB Engineering Services
GWII would like to thank Marsh for their sponsorship and support for this event. Without them this would not have been possible. A special word of thanks also goes out to Absa Insurance, Guy Carpenter, Allianz, One Financial and iToo.
A big thank you also goes out to Insure Group for once again sponsoring our photographer, Nadine.
And lastly, to all GWII members thank you for attending this event in celebration and acknowledgement of our achievements and accomplishments. We hope you feel inspired and encourage to climb those mountains you are facing in 2017, and remember to not only look at the mountain at the top but to enjoy every step of the way!
