9th Voice – Esther Williamson, Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo

This Episode features Esther Williamson, Founder and CEO at Proman House Ets

 

Esther is a World Economic Forum Global Shaper and a Fellow of the Mandela Washington Fellowship

Esther was born in the Democratic Republic of Congo before moving to South Africa with her family at the age of 10. After completing her studies, Esther returned to her country of birth to, in her own words, ‘do something big’. Esther has been widely recognised for her work by both the World Economic Forum and the Mandela Fellowship amongst others.

In this Episode, Esther talks about her father’s influence in her life, her love of music before breaking into song, feeling like a foreigner in her country of birth before eventually settling down to make an impact in the community within which she finds herself.

One thought on “9th Voice – Esther Williamson, Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo

  1. Very interesting comment.
    Listening to Esther reminded me of a Book called “How full is your bucket” by Tom Rath & Donald Clifton.
    Two exciting concepts in action she brings across
    1. a Counter intuitive view that confrontation is an indication of lack of maturity.. yet, the societal norm is lack of confrontation is an indication of lacking maturity. in essence Esther prescribes to the notion of constructive confrontation if such exists – confrontation to build-up not necessarily to succeed. Imagine that – powerful…

    2. in the book, a theory of full buckets create success comes across in Esther with her comment: “invest in family, they are the basis of all development”. in a world that accepts a me first agenda, it is incredible to hear such refreshing words out there.

    3. and lastly – no matter who you are, you need a launch. even with a niche, you need a launch.. I am inspired to ask myself this question daily – how do i launch the African child before i close my eyes to sleep. Inspired….. 🙂
