Getrude Matshe was born in Zimbabwe and grew up in London and New Zealand. Her main activity is her company ‘Her Story Circle’ and she is also a writer, a coach and a textile artist.

Getrude is a life force. She is aligned with her gifts and follows her intuition - she has had an incredible life! She was not afraid to quit a job with no Plan B and 3 children to feed and she is always coming up with new business ideas!

After a period of depression and a strange accident, Getrude set up Women Circles ‘to bring women together to share their stories, to inspire, to motivate and to be the light at the end of somebody else's tunnel’. She posted her business idea on Facebook and it went viral.

She also mentors women on how to speak and her idea evolved into a social impact movement with a vision that every woman who comes to the platform is not only coming to speak, she is coming to teach. Getrude curates all of these stories through her publishing company into a series of books. She harnesses women's intellectual ideas and helps repackage and sell them.

She has also been hired to set up women's cooperatives throughout Africa.
In South Africa, for example, the women make necklaces with beads, then take a picture of themselves with the art piece and their story and send it to Getrude on WhatsApp. Then she sells the necklaces through her website and people get to meet the woman who's made the necklace. This also cuts out the middleman so the money benefit the families directly.

She has many other activities, including advocating against FGM.
