Mpho Maboi’s inaugural “Women In Sports Sessions”, taking place Saturday, 30 September 2017, is set to feature some of the country’s prominent and influential women within the industry.
With the theme centred around broadcasting the panellist of speakers include Lebo Motsoeli (SABC Sports), Kate Nokwe (E News), Busisiwe Mokwena (Kaya FM) and Itumeleng Dibatane (Stylist).
An empowerment-networking event, MMWIS 2017 seeks to show appreciation to women in sports as well as inspire young women with aspirations of being in the sporting arena, by providing a platform for mentorship, branding & networking.
Sharing her motivation behind the event Mpho says, “A lot of young women have followed my journey as a sports anchor since 2009 when I first started in the industry. I believe my experiences, lessons, mistakes and pretty much everything I’ve learned while building my career will go a long way in inspiring, motivating and helping other young women get ahead in the sporting field. I get a lot of emails from young ladies wanting to get into sport. This tells me that there are many who are interested but just do not know where to start. The journey has been amazing. I want other women to know what’s it’s like to not only have a passion but to live it as well.”
With her career soon reaching a decade in the sports industry Mpho is undoubtedly amongst the country’s most respected and celebrated sports casters.
Currently a studio and touchline sport presenter for SABC Sport as well as a sports contributor on SABC 1’s Mzansi Insider, Mpho also presents her very own sports show on Metro FM’s newly revamped “The Ultimate Sports Show”. Taking listeners on a journey into the world of women in sport, her show airs every Thursday 18h00-19h30.
