Summary Profile

Stephanie Vermeulen’s work emphasises the practical application of emotional intelligence (EQ) and, as the first person to introduce EQ to the South African market, her best-selling book – EQ: Emotional Intelligence for Everyone – was initially published in 1999. She is an entrepreneur who develops applied EQ material for both business and public applications. As South Africa’s most controversial voice on women’s issues, she launched her second book – Stitched-up: Who Fashions Women’s Lives? – in 2005. With a passion for teaching both men and women to grow into their potential, Stephanie gives insight into the habits that inhibit people’s progress and provides tools for behavioural change.

National Brands Limited You should not refer to this eye-opening course as a training programme but rather as a journey. Few women get the opportunity to become so conscious of what is happening in their lives and, now that we have taken the first step, many are excited about the road that lies ahead.
