This is being facilitated by Al Karaki, Prof Gary and myself on behalf of Gauteng WordPress community, and in conjunction with Bridgette Khonkhobe of Ebony Park Training Academy.
The video below was filmed during a Stress Management workshop I ran for Sihlangene ECD Forum (ECD means ‘early childhood development’). This organisation represents approx. 300 creche owners, all of whom are women, and they’re based in Kaalfontein, Ebony and Ivory Park areas. These woman inspire me enormously because of their big hearts and willingness to serve their community unconditionally. See my involement as their Patron
“Next to share her story with the audience was Bridget Edwards, an amazing author and Emotional Change Catalyst and founder of the company sharing her name. She gave a motivational and highly personal talk on how to manage and harness stress as entrepreneurs, turning it from a negative to a positive” Melanie Hawken, Lionesses of Africa Founder and CEO
“I met Bridget Edwards at The Lioness of Africa Networking Breakfast in 2016. I was interested in what Bridget had to say, more especially as I was in my 3rd year of studies in Organisational Psychology. I found her writing and tips on coping with stress very informative and honest. I then invited Bridget to talk to a team of ladies at my place of work and they were most intrigued and found her book and talk very helpful. Interesting read.” Judy Nydoo, MIS and Admin Manager at Standard Bank
“Bridget is uplifting, enlightening, entertaining and really connects with her audience by capturing them with her energy and undeniable truth in her messages. A true leader. She is most definitely a ‘breath of fresh air’ when conveying her motivational talks.” Brigitte Thysse of Hirsch Fourways
“Once again a big thank you for arranging Bridget to come talk to us last week. I received excellent feedback from the Pretoria staff that it was extremely beneficial and they really enjoyed the talk.” ~ Dr Farhana Paruk, Pearson Institute of Higher Education, Pretoria Campus Principal
“One of the most incredible virtues of Bridget as a speaker and coach in her field, is her ability to connect with people of all cultures and socio-economic backgrounds. She speaks to people’s hearts, not the market. As the Consulting Agency of Sihlangene ECD, I’ve witnessed her natural people skills, and felt compelled to have her speak at our ‘Escaping the Rat Race’ event. Keep up the great work Bridget!” Patrick (DaBizDr) Moraka, Managing Director of Pheme Consulting
