Guest speaker: Annette Kimmitt
Business women get set for AGM
ness Womens Network (SBWN) for its gala event of
the year, its annual general meeting.
It really is the group’s night of all nights, and this
one will be no exception, as it welcomes Ernst and
Young’s Managing Partner, Annette Kimmit as its
guest speaker with the topic, What does it take to be
successful in this fast-paced, modern world?
Artificial intelligence, robotics and ‘The Internet of
Things’ (IoT) are reinventing the workforce.
Drones and driver-less cars are transforming
supply chains and logistics. And, changing prefer-
ences and expectations – most notably in the mil-
lennial generation – are altering consumption pat-
terns and demand for everything from cars to real
Technology, globalization and demographic
shifts are fundamentally disrupting and changing
the way the world works. So, how can we make it
work for us?
Annette will explore how business and individu-
als are responding to these shifts, which seemed un-
imaginable even a few years ago, and what it will
take to be successful in this new world.
Here’s a hint...It’s not the degree and it’s not the
piece of paper!
Annette speaks with 1000’s of high powered ex-
ecutives globally on a regular basis, SBWN are so
privileged to have her spend the evening with us.
