At the regular Economist Businesswomen Club breakfast last Friday at Hotel Thule, guest speaker Agnesia (Mara) Booysen of Standard Bank explained the seven steps every person must take to succeed in life. Mara is the Head of Continuous Improvement Management at Standard Bank Namibia and is widely respected in business circles for her delicate approach to the hard world of finance.

She emphasised that a person needs both wisdom and vision, stressing that it is never too late to live your dream. She advised women to write down their vision, to talk about it and to share it. Avoid negative people, she advised, telling her captivated audience how important it is to safeguard a good name.
She added that time management is very important and never to be late. For senior women, information becomes very important and they must also be prepared to learn from everyone.
The Economist Businesswomen Club provides a forum for the exchange of ideas and expertise. Through planned networking, it aims to encourage the personal development and management skills of its members and to advance the standing and power of women. The activities of the club are sponsored by Telecom Namibia and by Standard Bank Namibia. Current Businesswoman of the Year, Mrs Ericah Shafudah is the club’s patron.
