Whether you are a PSASA member or not, women speakers (that means women who are paid to speak from the platform, or in the media) are invited to join us for an all-women speakers event – high tea in a beautiful environment, in between thought-provoking talks and facilitated conversation, using the Outcomm® Visual Mapping system to get the most out of each presentation.

We have chosen the theme of Food for Thought because our thoughts create our reality.  How we think about ourselves, our wealth, our health, energy and our future business prospects all have a direct impact on the outcome.  We must choose our thoughts and words with care and broaden our minds to new ways of thinking so that we can create new and fresh realities. Women have the capacity and ability to change the conversation, the agenda and the climate wherever they may be.  Let’s be those women!

Speaker Details

Beverley survived a violent and traumatic hijacking with her 8 month old son in January 2001. She chose to become better because of it, not bitter, and it’s with this perspective and insight that she shares her story, her journey, and hopes it may impact yours.

Bev NewBecoming Better, Not Bitter
Presented by Bev Milun

Beverley has an Honours degree in optometry and has practiced successfully for over 20 years. She has a passion for her special field of interest: Binocular Visual Balancing and is a devoted clinician and Paediatric Optometrist.
Beverley gives generously of her time in charity projects and is a director for Bona Bolo (See the Ball), a non-profit organization providing eye tests and spectacles for underprivileged students and scholars across South Africa.

Her greatest passion, however, was borne of a violent and traumatic hijacking she survived with her eight month old son in January 2001. Instead of turning bitterly against the perpetrators afterwards, Beverley looked inward to see what she could learn about herself, how she could improve as a person and how she could become better, not bitter from the experience.

She was a weekly guest for several years on a radio program talking self esteem, communication and relationships. She is an author, a speaker and an educator and has a tangible enthusiasm for educating about self esteem and how to remain a survivor regardless of our experiences.
