Gail Hutchings wins Woman of Stature Member of the Year 2019!
I believe that if we support, sustain and grow small to medium businesses in our communities and in our country that we can grow and strengthen our local economies.
I’m honoured to be the WOS Network Member of the Year 2019. My association as a member goes as far back as 2016 and it’s been a life-changing experience. It’s unlocked so many opportunities and I’ve met extraordinary women from all walks of life. Over the past four years I have seen WOS evolve and grow into one of South Africa’s leading organisations. I’ve seen members thrive and blossom because of their association with WOS. I’m a member of the Fourways Chapter where I serve on the Leadership Team which has enabled me to connect with members on a different level, and it’s also pushed me out of my comfort zone to be a better public speaker. I would encourage any woman who is looking for an organisation where they are accepted no matter who they are to join WOS Network. It’s truly a community of like-minded women who care.
