How we work for you
WPO South Africa
Anni Hoare - Head of Women Presidents Organisation South Africa. Cape Town Chapter 1 | Cape Town Chapter 2 | Johannesburg Chapter 1 | Platinum 7 | WPO is a global and premium peer advisory organisation for women president, CEO's, Managing Directors, Partners and owners of companies with mature revenues. WPO extends over 85 cities and 6 continents, with 140 Chapters serving 2000 members. A WPO membership is a valuable privilege and a notable recognition as a woman business leader in the community. The organisation is dedicated to developing the best, most innovative solutions to business challenges using collaborative and creative problem solving processes.
Enhancement of Leadership/Advancement of Entrepreurship
It was late her 40's that Anni Hoare discovered her purpose which was the enhancement of leadership and the advancement of entrepreneurship. By complimenting the businesses of the few who affect the lives of many through employment, she realised that she could tangibly contribute to society, the community and her country. Through the facilitation of peer advisory groups she was able to provide purposeful guidance to increase the effectiveness of leaders, the results in their companies and their personal and professional growth.
Mentoring and Guidance
Mentoring and offering guidance to business owners (who are often serial entrepreneurs) to resolve their issues and maximize their opportunities results in them making better decisions, creates better results within their companies and in turn fosters better leadership. Why does this matter? It matters as it creates a lifestyle and legacy for the business owner, local employment and strong companies who impact the economy and country. Providing a platform for helicopter strategic thinking and accountability whilst finding answers to their own questions is gratifying and more so, when CEO's achieve and surpass their perceived limits, reaching their greatest aspirations.
Anni's business experiences have provided a unique knowledge derived from success and scars from failures. She takes advantage of all the lessons through her years of leading WPO groups and her own businesses to hone strong leadership and strategy skills. Having an appreciation for the challenges that business owners encounter every day synced with an innate entrepreneurial spirt and intuition provides the fertile grounds for her to probe and challenge others to generate their own insights. Connecting with people and challenging leaders to be better leaders is her natural forte' and coupled with the collective genius of a peer to peer platform has proven to be a sound formula for positive outcomes for WPO members.
