Entrepreneurs from within the Brakpan community recently gathered at Hirsch’s Carnival for their monthly Business Networking event hosted by Hirsch’s, with Wellness Centre’s, Rene Venter, as Guest Speaker. Said Rene “After running a successful Wedding Venue for 21 years we neglected a very important aspect in our life and that was our health.
We decided to change our life-style as a family, and noticed the difference and decided to reach out to others. We started a Wellness Centre at our venue four years ago and reached out to the community and to businesses who wanted to assist employees with a healthy body and mind.
Our personal goal is to lead a healthy life-style, maintain our weight and to increase our fitness level – and to educate as many people as possible about good nutrition and to train and empower as many coaches as possible to duplicate our efforts.”
After Rene’s talk, networkers were given the opportunity to present themselves and their businesses in a 30-second ‘elevator pitch. ’This was followed by some lucky draws, networking, sharing of business cards and enjoying refreshments.
