PfP at Oprah Magazine's O You! Conference

Stephanie Dawson-Cosser was amongst the fortunate Partners for Possibility team members who attended the Oprah Magazine O You! Conference at Gallagher Convention Centre, Johannesburg, on the 14th of October 2013.

This was the first ever O You! conference on the African continent.  Over 5 000 people were in attendance, the majority of which were women.


The Bookery, an organisation dedicated to building, stocking and staffing well-equipped school libraries across South Africa, has joined hands with Partners for Possibility to provide libraries to deserving schools who are part of PfP. This collaboration was launched at the Oprah Magazine O You! Conference.

“I met ladies who had travelled from Swaziland, Botswana, Zimbabwe, just to see Oprah!” says Stephanie, "it was a totally inspiring event."

Oprah was joined by three other speakers on the day; productivity consultant and master organiser Julie Morgenstern, change expert Ariane de Bonvoisin and South African author and radio personality, Redi Tlhabi. The conference is dedicated to equipping readers of O Magazine with the inspiration and encouragement to make the most of their lives.

“It was great to be on the receiving table with young adults from Tembisa who are Equal Education activists, The Bookery staff and representation from Partners for Possibility,” Stephanie concludes.
