Why is networking so important for young entrepreneurs?
Young entrepreneurs must know one thing: success does not happen overnight and it is not without perseverance. Networking builds confidence, inspires, motivates and opens up opportunities you would otherwise never have access to. Young people get to meet other successful people, who can mentor, coach, educate and encourage them on their way up.

Success Summit is designed for professionals – not of a certain level, occupation or age but of a particular attitude – businessmen and women who seek to increase their ability to achieve and succeed and are looking for proven strategies that work.

The summit is for budding entrepreneurs who believe they are on the right path, but can’t figure out what they need to do to in order to get better and faster results.

Interview with the Founder of Success Summit

Nondumiso-Mzizana2

What is Success Summit all about?
“After winning the award as South Africa’s Businesswoman of the year, entrepreneur category, I felt that the next step would be to impart this knowledge to young entrepreneurs. I would like to empower, foster excellence in the area of small and medium enterprises, coach and mentor successful as well as aspiring entrepreneurs.”

“Success Summit is about personal and business self-development. We wish to enable a new set of entrepreneurs who will not have to depend on employment for survival, and thus create more jobs in the process.”

“Our focus is on building successful enterprises. We focus on helping people with entrepreneurial skills, leadership skills, marketing, innovation and sales skills. We deliver training programs focusing on communications skills, presentation skills, referral marketing, networking skills, coaching, mentoring and more.”

What was the inspiration behind starting this Initiative?
I have found that women and youths in particular face unique challenges in business. Women struggle to balance their everyday lives with their careers, to say “no” assertively, have difficulty with self-promotion and suffer from lack of confidence. In addition they lack negotiation skills, and have doubts about venturing into business deals. They also suffer from procrastination and other problems.

Young people in the corporate world and aspiring young entrepreneurs wanting to start their own businesses struggle to get accurate information, advice and direction due to lack of appropriate mentors, coaches or role models who have appropriate experience and have succeeded in their own right.

I wanted to create a forum where women and youths can overcome these challenges and help each other by sharing best practices, tactics and strategies and partner with a financial and government entity that understands the mind of an entrepreneur.

What do you hope to achieve with this summit?
I believe with these summits we shall create a “get up and do it for yourself” mindset amongst upcoming entrepreneurs, where youth and women won’t have to depend on being employed and thus create jobs in the process. The key focus will be mentorship with follow up, the success mindset, innovation and creativity. Some profit made from these workshops will be invested in rural women and rural high-school youth, who I strongly feel are very much neglected.

Why are small businesses so important today?
Small businesses are vital in today’s economy because many of the revenues obtained by government are from small business taxes. Since we are currently in a global financial crisis, which is affecting nearly everyone round the world, the existence of small businesses can really stimulate the economy and hopefully improve the economies globally and especially in Africa. Finally, small businesses are important because they are in a position to provide more job opportunities for our people, in a way that can have an impact on the unemployment rate.

Why is networking so important for young entrepreneurs?
Young entrepreneurs must know one thing: success does not happen overnight and it is not without perseverance. Networking builds confidence, inspires, motivates and opens up opportunities you would otherwise never have access to. Young people get to meet other successful people, who can mentor, coach, educate and encourage them on their way up.

Can you give us three networking tips?
Be authentic, build trust with your contacts and see how you can help others. Ask yourself what your goals are in participating in networking meetings. Ask open-ended questions and follow up on your referrals.

What inspired you to start this summit?
Upon the recognition of being South Africa’s businesswoman of the year, I was definitely not going to watch the trophy gathering dust without giving back to that which is close to my heart and that is entrepreneurship. I am aiming these summits at the youth and women, who I believe really need the skill and expertise of running successful enterprises in this country. Lastly, I felt the importance of breaking the get-rich-alone syndrome that exists amongst South Africans, where skills and knowledge can be transferred to others without fear or a feeling of being threatened in the process. When you give back you get more satisfaction for existing.

What do you hope the speakers will bring to this summit?
The speakers are successful leaders and entrepreneurs with expertise in their industries. They have excellent business acumen and have succeeded in their own right. They will transfer the same to entrepreneurs who want to take their businesses to the next level, or those who aspire to be successful in business.

Why are you focusing on inspiring young people with this summit?
Young people are the future of this country; it is as simple as that. We need to invest time, energy, resources and walk the talk on youth development and empowerment by showing them that it is indeed possible to achieve the best if you have passion and zeal.
