Jeanne is best known as host and producer of the internationally syndicated (130 countries) TV program “Fashion Television” (FT) which ran for 27 years.

From Toronto, New York, Paris, and Rome, Jeanne has interviewed and rubbed shoulders with the world’s elite from top models such as Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell to designers from Valentino to Karl Lagerfeld, to celebrities from Beyonce to Madonna.

Therefore I ROSE!

A Soulful Chat with Author, Speaker,

and Award-Winning Global Businesswoman Amanda Dambuza


Wednesday May 3rd 2022

12:30 pm EST/9:30 am Pacific/6:30 pm Paris/5;30 pm London


Amanda Dambuza gives real meaning to the words “Therefore I Rose” which is the name of her new handbook for those seeking an extraordinary life.

That’s because her early life as a young black girl in South Africa was “Baked In Pain”, which is the title of her memoir.

Abandoned by her parents, physically and sexually abused by extended family members, while also segregated under the oppressive white minority rule known as Apartheid, Dambuza had a seemingly impossible task to escape and rise above her circumstances.

Yet she did — eventually working up her way through corporate management to start several of her own businesses, all of which have earned awards and accolades including being celebrated as one of the TOP 30 Businesswomen in South Africa.


Join me to hear Amanda’s remarkable story and how she rose to become a beacon for female creativity and leadership with a worldwide following.

Celebrating the BEAUTY of Women Of A Certain Age  

With Award-Winning Photographer Susie Lang

September 2022  Date TBA


Susie Lang grew up on a farm in rural South Australia and developed a passion for photography as soon as her father handed her the one and only camera the family-owned. Lang’s expertise and experience flourished from amateur to professional after she graduated from London’s Photographic College, earned her BA in Art and Design and won the Kodak award for her work.

Feeling her own anxiety of becoming invisible as she aged, Susie started photographing women over 60, creating the most remarkable portraits of an under-served and under-represented demographic.

Susie is able to see into a women’s soul aided by the fact that she is also a psychotherapist with a successful private practice in Manhattan where she now lives.


If you cringe whenever a camera appears, you will definitely want to join me as Susie takes us on a journey through her amazing repertoire, and why she believes photography is the key to unlocking and embracing our true essence and value as women of a certain age!





Heidi Evans (centre) In Paris


 The WOMEN OF PARIS Step Into The Spotlight

With Heidi Evans

November  2022   Date TBA


With a degree in English Literature, Heidi Evans came to Paris from the UK to learn French, fell in love with the city, along with its relatively unheralded history of the women who shaped its literary, artistic, and theatrical arenas.

In fact, frustrated with the predominantly male narrative in these areas, in 2016, Heidi started the very first Women of Paris Tours devoted entirely to its heroines from Mata Hari to Edith Piaff, from Simone de Beauvoir to Sylvia Beach, from Colette to Natalie Clifford Barney.

Join me as we tap into this woman’s knowledge and passion as she explores the lives, loves and struggles (one writer had to pen under a male name!) of the women of Paris.

Note Heidi’s tours stop at a few of the neighbourhood’s pastry and chocolate shops!

Because, well because it’s Paris!
