Launch of the Black Business Woman Association (BBWA)
20th November 2006
The launch of the Black Business Woman Association (BBWA) was celebrated in true African style at Moyo Restaurant at Spier Wine Estate in Stellenbosch, Cape Town.

The event, co-sponsored by The O'Shea Group, was attended by the Deputy President,
Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, MECs Tasneem Essop, Richard Dyanti and  Marius
Fransman and other prominent business people.

The Chairperson and driving force behind the BBWA, Hilda Ndude,
believes this is a
landmark event as it marks the formation of the first formal organization and voice for
 black women in business, specifically within the Western Cape.

In line with AsgiSA (Accelerated & Shared Growth Initiative for South Africa)
President Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka says she is thrilled and supportive of the formation
of an association for black women to connect through business and added that it was
long overdue. "Industries that should be targeted by black women include Tourism,
Property, Construction, IT & Call Centres and ICT Manufacturing" says the Deputy

"There are huge opportunities in the Western Cape and it is time for the
and organization of black women in business within the province. Given the economic
and growth opportunities inherent in the Western Cape the timing is perfect for black
business women to seize the opportunities that are available " says Patrick O'Shea,
CEO of the O'Shea Group.
