MasterDrive to host its Women with Drive event during Women’s Month

Traditionally, this is hosted in October to pay recognition to Transport Month and all female leaders and influential figures within this industry.

This year, however, the Women with Drive event will be hosted in August, or Women’s Month. The CEO of MasterDrive, Eugene Herbert, said, “We were presented with the opportunity to host the event at the first Festival of Motoring since Covid-19 made public gatherings impractical. Consequently, we will be hosting Women with Drive as a hybrid event where a limited number of guests can attend in person and a virtual audience can join us as well.

“The theme this year will be Women with Drive Live – a play on the word ‘live’ as we will be hosting the event live and our theme will be centred around living your best life after we move away from the challenges presented by Covid-19.”

This year we will again host both a panel discussion and a number of speakers addressing. “The theme throughout will address issues that will help guests to move beyond a life that was largely centred around surviving and living!

“In particular, the panel discussion will feature ladies who are at the helm of helping their business return to normal as we move away from pandemic restrictions and face a number of other challenges instead, including load-shedding, burgeoning fuel prices and the devastation from changing weather patterns in areas such as KwaZulu-Natal.”

Presenters will address issues which are of great pertinence as they live their best lives. Topics aimed to be covered include:

• Guidance on how to balance the importance of rebuilding social lives as people overcome the tendency to stay home and avoid interaction that resulted from increased isolation
•     Analysing the lingering effects of the past few years and what we can do to live at our healthiest and best
•     A motivational talk from a Paralympian who not only overcame major challenges but who chose to live her best life.

Every year we like to use Women with Drive to support a worthy initiative. “This year we are supporting the South African Guide-Dogs Association. The organisation is extending their premises and making this possible through the ‘Buy-a-brick-campaign. Entrance to the event is the purchasing of bricks in aid of the association.”

MasterDrive would like to invite you to join us at Women with Drive which has become a favourite on many calendars and which we know innumerable guests will be glad to attend in person again.

The Festival of Motoring will take place at the popular Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit from August 26 to 28.
