Watch #GoBeyond: Jo-Ann Strauss on women in entrepreneurship

After winning the title of Miss South Africa, Jo-Ann carved out a successful career in TV and media. She is now passionate about women in entrepreneurship, and believes that the key to successful change lies with SMMEs - and not government.

Women have always been history makers and trailblazers.

2017 is the inaugural CapeTalk #GoBeyond Women's Breakfast with Old Mutual, which aims to bring together like-minded women for a morning of inspiration and networking.

CapeTalk welcomes all comments that are constructive, contribute to discussions in a meaningful manner and take stories forward.

However, we will NOT condone the following:

  • Racism (including offensive comments based on ethnicity and nationality)
  • Sexism
  • Homophobia
  • Religious intolerance
  • Cyber bullying
  • Hate speech
  • Derogatory language
  • Comments inciting violence.

We ask that your comments remain relevant to the articles they appear on and do not include general banter or conversation as this dilutes the effectiveness of the comments section.

We strive to make the CapeTalk community a safe and welcoming space for all.

CapeTalk reserves the right to: 1) remove any comments that do not follow the above guidelines; and, 2) ban users who repeatedly infringe the rules.

Should you find any comments upsetting or offensive you can also flag them and we will assess it against our guidelines.
