In a post-World Cup South Africa, as the nation grapples with the challenges and opportunities of change the long run is a multimedia presentation produced by VWV, the award winning producers of the opening and closing ceremonies of the World Cup. The presentation offers an upbeat, informative and entertaining look at the things that make our country great while inspiring companies and individuals to get up get active and make a difference in the long run. Bruce demonstrates how we can maintain the magic of the World Cup and understand that its success was not an aberration but an example of who we are as a nation. He exhorts us to embrace the bigger picture instead of pursuing our favourite sport; that of running the country down. In a spirit of “yes we can” Bruce demonstrates that the people who are really running the country are you and me and that we hold the power to make the country great. He presents several business examples of South African pioneering work, leadership and greatness. He equates our struggle to that of a marathon runner and demonstrates that the ECG of South Africa is a volatile one. Every day in South Africa is a challenge but Bruce reveals practical examples of individuals and companies that have helped to make the country great. The long run helps to equip companies and individuals with the insight and energy they need to get on track…and build a better South Africa in the long run. GET OFF THE BENCH In a lively, thought provoking and often humorous presentation Bruce Fordyce presents fascinating facts and figures about the 2010 football World Cup. He exorts South Africans to take ownership of the "showpiece of the beautiful Game" and to help make this the greatest World Cup ever. He shows that we are already winners because we have been chosen to host the event regardless of the performance of the national team. He urges South Africans to "get off the bench" and become players and participants in this sporting epic rather than to sit back like spectators and just let it happen. His presentation is illustrated with explosive video footage of great World Cup highlights as well as some very amusing moments. His call for action leaves the audience pumped up and tremendously excited about an event that will forever change the perception of South Africa in the eyes of the World bur more importantly in the eyes of South Africans.

FITNESS AND HEALTH
Bruce offers practical but sane advice on these subjects. He discusses ways to improve health, but not necessarily to create Olympic champions.. Bruce also goes on gentle morning runs with people who request them.
 
HUMAN ORIGINS
This talk is best delivered at the Origins centre at Wits University but can be conducted elsewhere. At the Origins centre Bruce guides delegates through the museum where they will learn about our Origins as cultural beings. South Africans are particularly happy to learn that the first stone tool technologies, religious thinking, art and cultural beginnings were in Africa and most probably South Africa . It is also possible to organise DNA tests for visitors to the centre. Bruce's DNA can be traced back 300 000 years on his Mothers side to a woman in Northern Greece, and on his Father’s side 27 000 years to the Iberian Peninsula. The lecture takes about an hour and a quarter.
