This past weekend, 56 delegates attended the annual Switch Seminar held at the Standard Bank Incubator in Johannesburg. Upon reflecting on the seminar, this is what several Switchers had to say:
“The Switch programme has taken my mind and put me on a journey where it shifted my thinking to an innovative person passionate about business. I took time to research and learn about everything which involves health to understanding the human body as a whole. The Switch Seminar made things even more interesting by bringing in amazing speakers which made me identify my weakness and gave me direction on how can I use them to my advantage and succeed. The speakers made me realise that I doubt myself too much because I think I don’t have enough knowledge and experience while I have the potential to carry this journey and be a success. Even though people do not understand why I took so long to start my company they will now see that I was not just building a company but a legacy.”
“On day one I learned alot about mentorship and understanding funders. Understanding funders was a presentation that opened my mind and now I understand what I should have before approaching funders.
On day two I learned to understand my personal finance and how to have a budget in place in order to be in a good financial position. I’ve managed to get all that I’ve wanted for my project to start running. This seminar has made changes in me. All thanks to Carrie!”
Day 1 – “We all know what we want to do and have an idea how,coming to the seminar from all the different speakers from different sectors and views gives you that extra push you need,reignites the passion, repositions you to the right track and challenges you to close the. Seeing other Switches also encourages getting those partnerships and exchanging best practices.”
