About the event

The W Summit, hosted for the third year by De Beers Group, has the  theme this year of ‘pioneering the new business brand’ and highlights  women who excel in business. It features sessions on such topics as  marketing is dead; engagement is alive, investing in women-led  enterprises, the power of influencers, a story of diversity, and  wellness and health.

Keynote speaker is Her Excellency Neo Masisi, First Lady of the  Republic of Botswana, and opening remarks were by Dr Linah Kelebogile  Mohohlo, University of Botswana Chancellor and former Governor of the  Bank of Botswana. Other high-profile speakers include Connie Ferguson, actor, producer,  model and business woman, jazz diva Mary Starling, and Carmen Smith,  Vice-President of Creative Development at Walt Disney Imagineering. The one-day event at Notwane Farm in Gaborone is one of a trio of  conferences hosted by De Beers Group under the umbrella of the Diamond  Symposium Week. The others were the Entrepreneurship Catalyst event last  Saturday and the Diamond Conference on Tuesday.
