“Learn to Love Your Face” – Face Profiling Workshop

March 27, 2014 in Uncategorized

“Learn to love your face – it catalogues your life journey” – Face Profiling Workshop:

Face Profiling Workshop

Bedroom Boutique recently hosted a Face Profiling workshop presented by face Profiler, Beatrix Pickard-Cambridge of Facesense who has 16 years experience in the field of Face Profiling.  She offered some insight on how face profiling allows for a greater understanding of an individual’s personal dynamics, his aptitudes and challenges and how to reframe those challenges to benefit the greater whole of an organization.  Said Beatrix “The face can be subdivided into smaller portions to reveal various character traits.  For example, the left side of one’s face reflects one’s personal life, while the right corresponds with work and professional relationships.  By studying the lines on someone’s face, I can get an insight to their perceptions, social dynamics and certain behavioural traits.” Attendees were in awe as Beatrix took them through many practical examples on how Face profiling can be applied as a successful tool for Human Resources.

Margaret Hirsch – Changing Lives

December 30, 2013 in Uncategorized

MARGARET HIRSCH – CHANGING LIVES.

Since winning the  BWASA Business Woman  of the Year Award in 2012 and going on to win the SANLAM  Lifetime Achievement  Award in Entrepreneurship, the TOPCO Enrepreneur of the Year and the Award for the Best Women’s Empowered  Community Driven Project this year, Margaret Hirsch’s feet have barely touched the ground.

As well as managing the eighteen Hirsch branches and concept stores in three different provinces, she has made it her goal to motivate and inspire young girls throughout the country, to work hard at achieving their own goals and to make sure that those in the poorer urban areas are able to attend school on a regular basis.

Margaret took under her wing the Girls With Dignity project when she heard that millions of young South African girls were unable to attend school for one week every month when they had their periods.  It drove her to personally buy thousands of rands worth of “Girls With Dignity” reusable  sanitary packs and pads made by KZN Entrepreneur, Sue Barnes and distribute them to girls schools around the country.  As well as distributing the packs, she used the opportunity to set the girls a task.  To write an essay about what they would like to achieve in their lifetime. Margaret gave a cash prize to the best essayists at the schools. Some heart  wrenching stories came back from the girls.

Said one: “It was hard when my mother died.  Growing up without a mothers love and care is bad enough, but being abused and then falling pregnant was like a bad dream.  I knew I had to rise up against this and look to a bright and better future.  Fall today.  Rise tomorrow.  My future is going to be wonderful. I have mapped it out and I know that I will be successful and I want to thank  Mrs. Hirsch for helping me to see myself as the person I really want to be in the future!”

Said Margaret “I have been touched and overwhelmed by the tenacity and the strength of these young South African girls.  They are our future and we need to nurture and inspire them to reach their own personal goals and ambitions.”
