Supermodel Naomi Campbell is a formidable force in the fashion industry and has used her success to establish herself as an entrepreneur, which is why she is a keynote speaker at the Forbes Woman Africa Leading Women Summit 2019 at the Durban ICC on 08 March.
Campbell will join in the conversation on wealth creation on the continent.
Her persona, however, is one that can’t be ignored. Her presence alone warrants the R5 500pp cost to be a part of the 500 strong audience.
And while I want to pose cerebral questions about her summit of one of the world’s most cut-throat industries, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t want to know what her beauty regime looked like either.
Daily green juices? Really? But I also want to know how she used prejudice against her to find her own power.
Campbell was the first British black model to appear on the cover of British Vogue – in the ’80s – yet she doesn’t look a day older.
