DOCUMENT INFO
Description: Sindi Zilwa is heading up one of South Africa's top black owned firms. She qualified in 1990 and became South Africa's 2nd black woman CA(SA). She is the co-founder and current CEO of Nkonki Inc. Having been previously nominated as ABASA'S most active member, we talked with Sindi about mentorship. According to Zilwa, women must set a goal for themselves and understand that it takes time, tough times, to achieve one's ambition. They must not look for "happy ever after" scenarios, as they are nonexistent in the business world. They must focus on depth rather than breadth of expertise, and be generous in transferring skills to others.
