    ABN Productions, CNBC Africa hosts Leading Women Debate

    ABN Productions in partnership with CNBC Africa will on Wednesday, 8 August 2012, host the 'Leading Women Debate', an in-depth discussion of issues affecting women's advancement in business.

    The theme of the debate "Work - Life - Balance" will reflect on the challenges career women face in today's pressurised business environment, their vital mentorship role, as well as their take on current business trends. ABN Group executive director, Bronwyn Nielsen will moderate the debate.

    "The 'Leading Women Debate' follows the success of last year's 'Women on Top' round-table debate, and forms a part of the group's initiatives in honouring women this month,'' says Roberta Naidoo, managing director of the ABN Group.

    "The stats on women's representation on company boards at the national level makes for dismal reading and it's our sincere belief that we have to start these dialogues to open up more opportunities for women at the top level based on merit.''

    The main panellists include:

    • Nicky Newton-King, CEO of the Johannesburg Stock Exchange and a member of the Financial Markets Advisory Board. She was also one of the primary drafters of the Insider Trading Act
    • Phuti Mahanyele, CEO of Shanduka Group and winner of the 2009 'Most Influential Woman in Government and Business - Financial Services'

    The hour-long debate will be broadcast on Monday, 13 August, from 1PM CAT on CNBC Africa, DStv Channel 410.
