Networking for a Cause in Johannesburg

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa – SOS Children’s Villages South Africa attracted various corporate individuals and celebrity crowds at the Munro Boutique Hotel in Johannesburg for an afternoon of networking and giving back.



The afternoon kicked off with a heartening message from a CNN producer and a friend of SOS Children’s Villages who is also a speaker, trainer and an author Nadia Bilchik. Nadia shared her experience of how giving can impact your life positively and how you can make memorable contact with people through being genuinely interested in people situations, struggles and hopes.  A chiropractor, Dr Martin Kruger was also one of the speakers for the afternoon who shared a moving personal experience of why he chose a career that changes lives of ordinary people on a daily basis and how to live a fulfilling life by giving your time, resources and intellect to people who are in need.

Keynote was delivered by a motivational speaker, author and TV personality Justin Cohen who delivered an electrifying exchange that encouraged most people to open their purses to donate and give back to our cause. The auctioned items raised a healthy amount of money which will directly go to advancing SOS programmes, and donations kept streaming in for the duration of the afternoon.
