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”.
