For Interviews: 602-997-1101
Connie Kadansky is traveling to Rwanda, in East Africa, July 12th to teach business development and speaking skills to women leaders and entrepreneurs in a program sponsored jointly by Rwanda Women Parliamentary Forum and WomenforWealth.com, USA.
Kadansky, a Phoenix native, is founder and president of Exceptional Sales Performance, an international performance improvement company, specializing in new business development consulting and coaching. Connie has extensive training experience with diverse industries from food distribution, to financial services, to print media to solo entrepreneurs.
She was selected by WomenforWealth.com to join the Forum because of her diversity of experience and exceptional training ability in the area of sales and business development. “You can’t succeed in business development without the ability to sell, and this is an essential ingredient often overlooked by entrepreneurs around the world,” say WomenforWealth.com Co-Founder Elizabeth Uible.
The American Embassy in Rwanda has stated that this will be the first time an American group has gone down to present a conference for the Women in Parliament, something they’ve felt is long overdue. “We expect the results of this Entrepreneurship Conference for Women to have great ripple effects in terms of women starting businesses here, and a very positive impact on the economy in which the average income is $290 annually,” says Danny Stoian, Commercial Attache.
With regard to her trip, Kadansky says, “What I find so encouraging is the fact 49% of Rwanda’s legislature is composed of women – thus women are an integral part of the country’s reconstruction. This follows the country’s massive genocide of 1994, when more than 800,000 lives were lost in just 3 months.”
In addition to the international business training Kadansky will be doing in Rwanda, her stay at the WomenforWealth.com Retreat Center will include a menu of activities including trips to small villages and coffee plantations, a visit to the native Gorillas of “Gorillas in the Mist” fame, and social gatherings with Rwanda’s top political and business leaders. Also included will be Micro Lending site visits, where WomenforWealth.com has donated thousands to women to start businesses, and become self sufficient. “Women can start a thriving business for as little as $100, and when they pay the loan back it re-circulates to another woman,” says Co-Founder Uible. “I can’t think of a better way to create self sufficiency in the world! We’ve had so much interest that we are starting regular trips there with donors so that they can see and feel the outcome of their generosity.”
