Audi South Africa in partnership with Mzansi’s leading female Magazine, Marie Claire will have a summit to provide visitors with motivating life-changing information.
The one-day Marie Claire Power Summit 2018 which will happen on July 18 at The Lyric, Gold Reef City in Johannesburg hope to benefit audiences with an abundance of information to shape their lives for the better.
The event will feature keynote speakers and interactive panel discussions on the issues which currently matters to South African women.

Summit organisers promise that the event, also associated with the Nelson Mandela Foundation’s Centenary programme which marks 100 years this year since Madiba’s birth, will also focus on critical issues such as gender equality, career, business, and activism.
Audi has also been a key partner with Nelson Mandela Foundation for many years.
This partnership with Marie Claire and the Nelson Mandela Foundation is a first of its kind and as such affords Audi the opportunity to bring its Vorsprung brand values to life.
Head of Product and Marketing at Audi South Africa Asif Hoosen said Marie Claire Power Summit 2018 resonates strongly with the values which Audi stands.
“We are a South African brand at heart and committed to driving progress, so this partnership is an excellent opportunity to assist all of us as South Africans in realising our own personal advancement and that of our communities,” said Hoosen.
Hoosen said Marie Claire Power Summit 2018 intends to inspire participants to forge ahead in their personal and social capacities and to celebrate important topics in our country – diversity, gender equality, and empowerment.
For the same reason, Audi is also progressing Marie Claire’s ‘Future Shapers’ edition, which appears in the magazine’s June and July issue that is currently on shelves.
The Marie Claire Future Shapers edition features several phenomenal South African women whose work is disrupting the local status quo for a brighter and better future in our country.
“We feel that by empowering fellow South Africans to make full use of their talents, vision, and personal freedom is one of the best ways to celebrate our value and the contribution that we can all make to our society,” says Hoosen.
Marie Claire Brand Director, Emilie Gambade notes that the Power Summit and the Future Shaper edition ultimately pay tribute to the collective power of women.
The event “highlights the worldwide shift in the way women are campaigning for change,” she said.
“We want the summit to be the source of inspiration and support that connects and empowers women across our continent,” adds Hoosen.
