About the Guest Speaker:
Nelia Annandale, Founder of Keedo, two years after the birth of her twins, lay in a hospital bed after a near fatal skiing accident, she realised that she had something to offer mother earth and her children and that the time for action had come. She now appreciated that her time on this earth was not guaranteed and that she should make use of her talents to reach her goals and live out her dreams while she was still able.
Nelia battled to find comfortable, fun, colourful clothing that was soft on the skin of her twins, so she decided to create a range of clothing that suited her needs and was kind to the environment. She took a leap of faith and approached a bank for a small loan. With this, she started the first Keedo branch in Cape Town, named after her own two ‘keedos’.
Nelia has a passion to help other women and has built a successful business while maintaining a keen focus on providing sustainable employment. Her mantra is that employees should be heard, cared for, fairly remunerated and encouraged to grow and develop themselves, and through this has won the International Women’s Entrepreneurial Challenge Award, the 9th Annual Award for Top Women Successfully Leading Business: Top Gender Empowered Company: SMME, the Cape Chamber of Commerce Exporter of the Year Award in the design category and the Black Business Quarterly Business Woman of the Year Award as special recognition for transformation.
