What Would You Do If You Weren't Afraid  **NEW PRESENTATION**

In this presentation Debora looks at all the things that hold women back personally and in the business world.

 
Why South Africa still Matters! Ten reasons why SA remains the best place to be!
 
“For every one South African holding out a gun, there are ten more holding out a hand of friendship.” This remains true despite all the issues South Africa faces. Renowned local and international broadcaster Debora Patta spends most of her time with the darkest part of humanity but in this talk she speaks about why, despite all the bad she witnesses, South Africa remains one of the best places to live and do business in.
This is no fluffy light-hearted address – but a gritty, tell-all approach that reveals South Africa warts and all. Be moved to tears and fall in love with South Africa all over again as Debora Patta takes a long hard look at this country through the perspective of more than twenty years of tough reporting.
 
 
Leadership Lessons from Nelson Mandela:
 
Former South African President Nelson Mandela is a global icon who leaves an enduring legacy as a former political prisoner turned president. A man who showed that true leadership is about servanthood. That generosity of spirit and power can go hand in hand. And that reconciliation and forgiveness is more powerful than any weapon. Debora Patta provides insights from her experience of covering Mandela’s release from jail, his presidency and beyond. And shares memorable personal moments spent in his company. Leadership lessons from Mandela provides invaluable insights for both individual and company growth.
 
 
Re-invention – how a phoenix rises from the ashes:
 
In May 2013 Debora Patta walked away from a 15 year television show that had become the most successful current affairs programme in South Africa. “It was time,” Patta says, “to re-invent myself and start afresh once again. I had grown comfortable and was worried that I would stagnate. “ She resigned and went on to develop her journalistic career on an international platform.
 
Renowned broadcaster and story-teller Debora Patta now brings a brand new keynote address. Drawing on two decades of high profile journalism covering stories around the globe – Patta tells riveting stories of how to re-invent, re-ignite and change.

What does Oprah Winfrey have to teach about re-invention?

Debora Patta is a renowned broadcaster with over 20 years experience in television and radio. She is famous for her no-holds barred journalism and being unafraid to ask the tough questions. Who better than to provide lessons for PR and Management in how to negotiate the tricky terrain of managing your reputation. Speaking from firsthand experience in interviewing some of the world’s toughest characters – Patta teaches how to survive crises and scandal with elegance and grace.
