Speaker Testimonials

Being invited to speak at one of Xtraordinary Women’s events is a great honour. The level of professionalism regarding arrangements and administration is fantastic. You simply just have to arrive and do your thing. I also love speaking at their events as the guests are so engaging and interested in developing themselves and their business. You leave knowing that the knowledge you have shared is appreciated and making a difference, no matter how small.

Thanks to Gwen for inviting me to speak on how to 'Discover your personal brand and professional image' at the Xtraordinary Woman Blouberg networking breakfast. Not only was the audience delightful, but I was impressed with how well the event was organised and run. I first met Gwen years ago when Xtraordinary Woman was merely her vision and dream. It's wonderful to see how she has turned her dream into a reality and is inspiring and supporting women in business.

 I just love what Gwen is doing through her channel Xtraordinary women. As mothers, Career women, caregivers, co-coordinators, wives, ex wives, taxi drivers, mediators, daughters, sisters and so much more we rush buy one another at such a pace we forget to connect with other women experiencing the many challenges we all seem to have in common. These events and uplifting testimonials that are shared with women that attend, give us the opportunity to stop and breath with the profound relief that we are not alone. Someone else understands.

"Well done Gwen for making a difference in such a very very big way"

~Nicole Morris - Director of the House of Fashion

I had the privilege of speaking at the Xtraordinary Women cocktail evening 'Success In High Heels' in November 2011 and have to say it was one of best organised events I have spoken at in a while. Gwens' attention to detail - from the venue, to the catering to the amazing goodie bags - was fantastic. To see over 100 women at an event, all ready to be inspired and network is something very special. I speak at events around the country and Xtraordinary Women certainly know how to put together extraordinary events for women that are inspiring, uplifting and of incredible value. I hope to speak at another event soon!"

Gwen,  Thank you so much for having me - what a magic evening - you can be very proud! I loved being there and am sorry that we had to sneak off - so much going on at the moment! Thanks for my gorgeous flowers! Sending love and thanks.

Hi Gwen, What a fantastic experience working with you on the Success in High Heels event. As one of your guest speakers I felt included, encouraged and appreciated every step of the way. Your organisation was fantastic, your choice of venue magnificent and your sense of humour unfailing. It's been a real pleasure working with you. Thank you! I wish you every success in the future. Warm regards

"As a small business coach I had the opportunity to do a presentation at the networking breakfast. It was great to make new contacts in an area I had previously not serviced. Gwen, the host, did an outstanding job on the organisation of the event and I'll be happy to come again with a new topic!"

You know that you are at "fault" that I'm moving into a completely new direction with all the online marketing for local biz? :) ... started with your little FB status of wanting to figure out how to do a simple website .... it's morphed a lot since then but that's how it all started. Eternally grateful for the inspiration M'am!

Hi Gwen, Thank you so much for the opportunity to be a guest speaker at your networking group. It was a well organised event and I felt your guests were very receptive to my subject matter.

I have had a number of leads generated as a result of doing a talk at your meeting. You really are skilled in the art of networking and getting the best out of the women who attend. It’s because of this that all who attend benefit. Thank you for making this possible. Many thanks and keep up the good work!

It was an honour to be invited as guest speaker and share my experiences and offerings with a group of Xtraordinary Women.  The focus was ‘Creating the life you want’ and included aspects from my “Women’s. Worth Workshops”, my experiences of being a Nia Teacher as well as my journey through the Corporate World into my life as it is now.  Gwen’s passion of creating a platform for Women to meet and share experience adds value both from personal and business perspective. ~Jillian Lambert - Director The People Practice  

“I have had the privilege to address Xtraordinary Women functions on several occasions and have always been gratified by the professionalism of the audience. Gwen somehow manages to draw together an interesting mix of people who are genuinely interested in learning about different disciplines and how to apply them to their business. They are also interested in assisting each other so each event offers an incredible networking opportunity”.

Guest Testimonials

Dear Gwen,

Please accept my sincere thanks for a wonderfully organised and most successful cocktail evening. I arrived a bit on edge and tired, but came home totally content, having enjoyed an evening in which I could not find any fault. I just felt inspired by these seemingly ordinarily people rising to do extraordinary things not only for themselves, but for all those who come in contact with them.

The evening was just so conformable and the sharing from the speakers and singer, was so incredible. I wish I could have had my daughter there because it is the young people, especially, who need to see that we grow through pain and challenges. The world is so full of opportunities which you can embrace or you can choose to become a victim.

Attitude is all. I know that you will pass this over and say you had a lot of help, and support, which I know and my thanks and appreciation goes also to the sponsors, and the people who worked so hard to make it happen . But without you leading from the top and inspiring people, and manifesting your dream, we would all be a lot poorer. I salute you for your vision and for having such a true generosity of spirit. I don’t do Facebook, twitter etc ( one day one day) but I would like, if possible for you to post this as I would like everyone to know how I feel about your achievements and the amazing difference you have created for so many people, including me.

Fond regards,

Good Morning Ladies, 

That was a very inspiring and refreshing women’s breakfast. I am always astounded, every time when I hear women who decide to create their own destiny and be in control of their lives. It’s very encouraging to see the variety of businesses that are available to us all, thanks to you Gwen of Xtraodinary Women. No more yellow pages for me! Social Media is something I have always loved and now armed with a few more tools to understand, I will be far more active, thanks to Bettina. 

"Know with certainty that each day that you awaken and look into the mirror that you are a magnificent and contributive being making up an important part of this amazing world. Your very presence makes an inspiring difference. The truth is that you are perfect, exactly as you are right now. The word perfect means "complete in all respects." Since you are a full quantum being, you have an equal balance of positive and negative traits, thereby making you a work of perfection, both in body and in mind. Remind yourself daily that no matter what you have done or not done, you are worthy of love". Quote: Dr.J.Demartini

To all the gorgeous, ambitious, gutzy Ladies!

Thank you, thank you. One of – actually – the most energetic breakfast, for me, yet! I walked out of that space with so much energy, insight, more GUTZ and I have to share – it has paid off. I have had an amazing week, business in the shop, success with my new dealings, Erica Groves – Graphic Design – the most spectacular designs for my new product – WOW - and just the great smile I have carried all week. The cherry to top all that - my TAKE AWAY from the Breakfast – I have the lovely Anthea from Jaydex Dist. to sort out my home office, thank you Anthea.

To add, this has spiralled –the reason Gwen has put us all together - what we all there for. NETWORKING – I have bought the most delicious PINK Bubbly from Jaydex Dist. for my Valentine promotion. My Clients slugged very well with much satisfaction. It was delivered with spark, on time, affordable price, wonderful product, (sorry girls 6 bottles gone already) - great service.... I have connected them with a box maker for their bottles – this is networking! Awesome!

Thank you.... Gwen, Congratulations, you are a true inspiration to all of us. Moral support as well as guidance. Fairy Godmother and Timea, you two just rock LEFT and RIGHT, not the last we see of you for a long time.... To all the other Divas, keep the beat of the drum. Keep moving on, trudging on, crawling, running, whatever, just keep on – keeping on....

Look forward to seeing you all in Stilettos @ the Cape Royale, next week.....

 Hi Gwen, I think that all thanks must be to you so, THANK YOU for an amazing evening. I was so struck by such wonderfully ordinary women who have such extraordinary stories to tell. It was such an inspiration to me to have been part of last weeks event. Listening to the speakers just gave me goose bumps as I realised that we all have such wonderful stories to tell and how we as women can draw strength from each others stories which makes us into the extraordinary women that we are. Thank you for arranging such a stunning venue as always. Also the goodie bag are always such a treat and so beautifully presented. Keep up the wonderful work that you do and please I would love to be at the next one as well. Much love and respect.

Hi Gwen.Thanks for a really interesting morning.  I could definitely do with more contact with other business owners.  It can be crazy trying to develop your business in your own head all the time!  I enjoyed meeting the others and of course delighted with having won a prize (Wow!!).  The Pokens were a revelation and Lorna sets a great example for selling.I would be happy to offer a free yoga class with my small yoga group in future as a prize if you need one. I seem to be working interchangeably with my coaching and yoga clients these days.I have noted all the other ladies areas of expertise.  It's wonderful to have that as a resource.  I will follow your future events with interest and come when i can. 

Warm regards,

If it wasn't for the Xtraordinary Women network support and Carol Gerber's advice and guidance to get my business up and running, I am not sure I would have started Wrap it Up PR & Communication Strategy. The network was my first starting point to get things off the ground. Starting my own small business was a lifelong dream, scribbled on a bucket list 10 years ago, and here I am, running a small business, giving back through the work I do and making a living from it. Oh, and let's not forget Martin Van Niekerk Photography who made sure I looked like a businesswoman online too. You do amazing work. It's like I told you yesterday, the networking breakfasts are the place I go to recharge and reinvigorate myself.”

Thank you to all for the warm welcome, I must confess I did "shop around" for the best "networking fit" and found that Xtraordinary Women was everything I needed as a very young entrepreneur.

Being an Xtraordinary Women Member has been hugely beneficial to me both as a person and as a business owner. Ever month a speaker provides great insight into various aspects of running a business. It is through access to these speakers that I have gained the knowledge and contacts required to not only rebrand successfully, but to be able to express my authentic voice and to successfully grow my business. In my personal capacity, knowing that I would be meeting with like minded women who are supportive and inspirational has been what has in many of those early months kept me going. It is thanks to Gwen and her inspirational work that I can say today that I am living my dream.

Dear Gwen,


I would just like to thank everyone at Xtraordinary Women. I am new to Somerset West and started my own business.

Since I have been going to the Xtraordinary Women in Business Networking Sessions I have met a lot of amazing women, gained a lot of clients and friends.
 With all the talented speakers at the events I have gathered so much information about how to run a business and how to stay on top of all the new things happening around us. It is not always possible to be on top of the ever changing environment but Xtraordinary Women keeps you informed and offers many solutions and contacts.

They are truly inspirational in what they have accomplished. All the women attending these sessions have their own life stories to share. It's wonderful to have support and positive influence from all these amazing women. Thank you Xtraordinary Women for this rare opportunity to be part of something great.

Kind Regards,
