This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Sharron talks about how she went through redefining herself and who she really was, and how sustainability has become the prime driver of her life.

For the past 20 years Sharron has been driven by a deep passion for community upliftment utilising enterprise development. She began working in the area of enterprise development back in 1988 when she approached the NY State Bar Association for special permission to do her own “pro bono” projects. She began working with women from severely disadvantaged backgrounds in New York, Philadelphia and Washington D.C. She left her position as a Wall Street investment banker in 1995, relocated to South Africa and has essentially operated as a banker cum lawyer turned serial social entrepreneur as head of the Women’s Enterprise Development Initiative since that time.
