Women’s Month at Greyvensteins Inc
04 September 2018
This month has been a very busy Women’s Month at Greyvensteins Inc.

In preparation for Women’s Month, we hosted Professor Thuli Madonsela and Clinical Psychologist Charissa Bloomberg from Hidden Dimensions at our office. We also enjoyed a relaxed boat trip with Professor Madonsela and her son and showed off our beautiful coast line. The relaxed environment made for a lovely afternoon with the down to earth and approachable Professor Madonsela.

Our guest speakers for our Property Forums were Willie Els of Standard Bank, Dr Cornelia Garner a Botanist of NMU and Sibusiso Vilane. Sibusiso engaged us in an inspirational morning as he spoke about his journey as the first black person having summited Mount Everest. We all go through challenges in our daily lives, Sibusiso gave us some perspective on the mountains we all have to climb and how we choose to overcome them.

The Women’s Day public holiday was spent with our families outdoors at Norm-Hudlin Trails with the Just Property Team at their Family Fun Day. Spending time with the Just Property Team outside our bustling office and its associated stressors was just what the doctor ordered.

The absolute highlight of Women’s Month was our Women’s Tea featuring our guest speaker, Municipal Counsellor, Annette Lovemore talking to us about the challenges of women working in a male dominated environment. This was followed by lovely models that walked the catwalk as part of our fashion show. Taking the time to appreciate the women that we deal with on a daily basis and showing the nurturing side of our profession were priceless!
