Cape Town businesswoman Helen Johns the Powerhouse Behind Women’s Lifestyle Expo

After a few years on the catwalks of South Africa and Europe, Helen Johns (Atlantic Seaboard/ City Bowl) found herself in the Mother City to complete a university degree. In between lectures and socialising in the city, she and a friend started a small clothing company on Greenmarket Square. Once her entrepreneurial spirit got a taste of the opportunities out there, there was no looking back - she co-founded The Source, a wholesale homeware imports’ company, and created an events’ company within an advertising agency. This eventually became Mint Productions & Destinations, an expert events’ company operating across Africa. Finally, Helen decided that merely leading by example was not enough to uplift and empower women in the real world, which is how the Women’s Lifestyle Expo was born. What better way to celebrate empowered women than bringing to South Africa its first Women’s Lifestyle Expo. “The Women’s Lifestyle Expo is about female empowerment and promotion of the extraordinary skill and talent found in every industry across the country,” explained Helen. “Women are masters at the art of multitasking, which is why the Women’s Lifestyle Expo has put together a diverse array of presenters and inspiring feminine experiences to be relished over one weekend.” Join her at the Women’s Lifestyle Expo (#WLE2018), which will take place at Joburg’s Montecasino Piazza from Saturday, 29 to Sunday, 30 September. It promises to be a weekend to remember. Tickets are available at www.itickets.co.za. For more information about the #WLE2018, visit www.womenslifestyleexpo.co.za

Women’s Lifestyle Expo brings you the top 5 self-preservation rules every woman should know

A young girl has a far greater chance of being raped in South Africa, than learning to read. This horrific statistic brings home the reality of the country’s violent crime, specifically against females, and it’s time for every woman to act. This is why Mark Grobbelaar, founder of Women INpowerment (WIP) will be on hand to get you ‘boxing smart’ at this year’s Women’s Lifestyle Expo – brought to you by FMI - taking place at Montecasino Piazza on 29 and 30 September.   After the rape and attempted murder of Alison Botha in 1994, her close friend, Mark Grobbelaar, was driven to make a difference…and so he developed WIP: “South Africa is the rape capital of the world with one woman raped every 20 seconds. Women need to get INpowered so that they don’t become yet another victim,” said Mark Grobbelaar. “WIP is an extremely simple yet remarkably effective self-INpowerment system that has been designed specifically for women.”   Mark has outlined his top 5 rules for self-INpowerment:   1.       Be prepared Every woman I’ve ever spoken to, when asked the question, ‘What would you do if you thought you were going to get raped or murdered?’ has either said: ‘I don’t know’, or ‘I think…’. As a woman, you need to learn to immobilise a man even twice your size before finding yourself in that situation. Be prepared.   2.       Never underestimate anyone Just because a man – or woman – might seem physically less dominant than yourself, it’s important not to assume you will have the upper hand. We also often feel a social responsibility to take a more lenient approach with strangers, rather than risk a socially awkward situation. If you
