Through BWA, business women from across many industries connect to share and discover new ways of doing business better.

It has had huge benefits for me in my role at Cushman & Wakefield Excellerate.” Nomzamo Radebe, CEO of JHI - part of Cushman & Wakefield Excellerate, comments: “It is fitting that, on the eve of Women’s Month, we celebrate women achievers in business. We congratulate Liezel Conradie on this noteworthy achievement. JHI has a proud history of building a nation of empowered women and promoting gender equality.
