The Hub is happy to announce that in November 2015 we will be launching Job-Ready-Fridays! They days with special activities geared at providing our members with skills, motivation and inspiration!
Job-Ready-Fridays will take place every Friday. The day will be split into two main sections:
Skills Sessions will be held from 11am to 2pm. The sessions will cover a wide range of topics, including financial literacy, entrepreneurship, goal setting, preparing for the world of work, money management, and presentation and leadership skills. These sessions are open to members of The Hub, who will need to register in advance, as space will be limited.
Hub Talks will be held from 3pm to 5pm. These talks will feature invited guest speakers, all of whom are accomplished and up-and-coming Basotho working in a variety of fields, ranging from the arts to entrepreneurship. The speakers will present the work they do, their accomplishments, and how they have overcome any challenges they’ve faced in the past. Each talk will be followed by an open Q&A session. Hub Talks will not be restricted to members of The Hub – anybody is free to come and listen!
Introducing the first two Hub Talks speakers:
November 13: Lineo Segoete – Director of Ba Re E Ne Re Literature Festival
“Ba re e ne re aims to revive a culture and appreciation of creative writing in Lesotho and the response so far has been motivating and inspires us to do more. The challenges we face however, range from de-stigmatizing literature in Sesotho as many young people complain about the difficulty experienced when reading the language, to poor access to publications as distribution is very limited.” – Lineo Segoete
November 20: Bokang Kheekhe – Co-Founder of Basutoland Ink Clothing
“There is definitely a need for more entrepreneurs in Lesotho. And when I say entrepreneurs, I am not talking about tenderpreneurs, people need to understand that there is a difference between the two. Entrepreneurs are game changers in the growing of our economy; they are the key element in the growth of our country.” – Bokang Kheekhe
