Five Reasons Why You Need To Buy Tickets For AFI’s Women’s Month Event- Power To Empower

AFI Founder and CEO, Dr Precious Moloi-Motsepe hosted a panel discussion at The Leonardo in Sandton, with some of the most influential women in various industries, with some guests tuning in from Durban’s Oyster Box Hotel and Cape Town’s Twelve Apostles Hotel.

It was an event that left attendees feeling hopeful, energised, and eager to apply all that they had learnt from the keynote speakers.

Power To Empower returns this year and will be an in-person event that is all about holistically celebrating women who are unapologetically driving their vision.

Power To Empower is centred around celebrating women, creating opportunities and an environment that exposes them to empowerment possibilities. It is unapologetically about what drives women, their vision, and the importance of celebrating each other’s wins. This is an opportunity to network with current and future leaders and a chance to be in the room with some of South Africa’s most prominent women.


Powerful women have an affinity for powerful vehicles and what beats a driving experience at the Jaguar Land Rover Experience Centre in Lonehill? Our 70 premium guests will be able to take part in the on-road experience, where they will explore their inner petrol-head. The experience has a strong focus on safety, car control, collision avoidance and skid control. The experience covers the theory on driving safety and skilled tutorials on advanced driving technique. Key to the experience is about enhancing confidence, building awareness through the expert instructors who will guide you through the experience.


The fashion show at the first Power To Empower event at The Leonardo Hotel, was well-received by attendees. This year’s fashion show will feature 42 looks by designers and will be available for purchase at House of Nala and on the House of Nala e-commerce platform.

It is important that we note how this year’s Women’s Month is filled with heaviness, thanks to the incessant issue of Gender Based Violence that seems to be engulfing the country. Women are afraid to be in their homes, communities and in public. It’s debilitating and tragically takes the focus away from celebrating the strides that South African women continue to make in society. Power To Empower will acknowledge all the wrongs that are happening, while also celebrating the women actively driving their vision. Our special guests this year are four players in the CAF Women’s African Cup of Nations winning team, Banyana Banyana. They will be in conversation with Dr Precious about their secrets to winning and how you can follow their tips and apply them in your life and career.
