I attended an SA chamber for business women's meeting during the course of last year and Ria was the guest speaker. She only had a short twenty minutes to make her presentation but from the first instant she had her audience captured with her enthusiasm and energy. Her objective was to inspire us to take and use our own resources and get to wherever it was that we wished. Her energy alone made this point. Gabrielle Andrew LEILA'S PROJECTS Ria Vorster was the guest speaker at the annual general meeting of the George Association for People with Disabilities (APD) in August 2007. Her motivational speech on “You, your Soul and Entrepreneurship” was not only a passionate talk from the heart but inspiration for the many disabled people present. She gave encouragement and hope to people who believe that because of their disabilities they are not capable of learning new skills or running their own businesses. Ria puts her soul into her work and one can’t help become excited and motivated by one of her talks.
