Do you know women in South Africa who are attempting to tackle major economic, financial or social challenges in the country?
I want to hear about them and help people to learn from them.
I am currently in the process of compiling a series of books looking at “Problem-Solvers” in South Africa and I want to build up a clear understanding of how they approach problems, adversity and opportunity in their daily lives. The books will be carried as a series on Amazon Kindle.
If we can learn from these high-performers, we can apply their techniques to addressing problems and opportunities in other sectors.
With women becoming an increasingly more dominant social, political and economic force across the globe, the first book will be focused on women.
Who do we want to interview and what will we expect?
Navigating corporate life or a small business is challenging, but the candidates we are looking for have identified a specific problem in the world and have set in motion a plan to tackle that problem.
Through a series of interviews, we will try and un-pack what the problem is / was, reference industry peers and colleagues and get a clear understanding of how they approach the problem they are ultimately tackling.
The definition of “Success” is not necessarily commercial or financial but I want to be able to identify how the scope of the problem was defined and how they measure their success in tackling the problem they defined.
** If you successfully nominate somebody featured in the book, we will forward you a digital copy of the book via Amazon Kindle.
