Synopsis:
PRESENTATIONS by Zelda la Grange

As an inspirational speaker, Zelda la Grange has mesmerised audiences throughout South Africa and the world. With her unique ability to convey her time as Madiba’s personal aide in the form of anecdotes and stories to her audience in a way that is always fondly remembered, La Grange is changing lives one speech and event at a time.
 
She uses anecdotes of her experiences through life to convey lessons related to discipline, leadership, respect, integrity, honesty and transparency. Because of her vast field of experiences her speech can be tailor made to apply and focus on the theme of any conference.

La Grange also doubles as an effective moderator. Having served Nelson Mandela in different capacities her unique outlook on life, inspired by one of the greatest statesmen of our time, provides an ideal opportunity for any company to benefit from her experiences. Her experiences have brought about a complete metamorphosis within her thinking and attitude towards others and life in general.
 
She is thus the perfect candidate to moderate debates, public speaking events, conference discussions or any event that would need such a service to be performed. As a moderator, La Grange will act as a neutral participant in a debate or discussion, will hold participants to time limits and try to keep them from straying off the topic of the questions being raised in the debate. She may at times also ask questions intended to allow the debate participants to fully develop their argument in order to ensure the debate moves at pace.
