Entitlement a thing of the past: New breed of female future leaders arising

Courage, passion and tenacity. These are the characteristics that best define the VWV Phakama Women's Academy 2015 cohort who recently graduated. Following an intense mentorship programme, VWV's initiative has released 32 young women, who all received the necessary soft skills coaching to begin their journey; one of conquering the corporate world. And in the future it is hoped they will break the glass ceiling to occupy their rightful place in the C-suite halls of fame, with some even sitting at the heads of boardroom tables. For these young women are without doubt the future and represent the marketing and communications industry leaders of tomorrow.
