“After completing the Business Acumen Training by South African Tourism and Nedbank for Women in Tourism, I was inspired to think about ways to enhance market access for women-owned businesses in tourism. After receiving training on how to run our businesses better, the natural next step felt like taking businesses to meet their customers. This is what Womxn Xplore aims to do through the attendance of domestic travellers, buyers, and the media.”
