With regard to equipment for her presentation or workshop, Zanele uses a full multi-media presentation from her own laptop computer (an Apple MacBook). In the case of in-person presentations, she needs the following equipment to be provided for her:
Zanele uses her own laptop as an autocue and makes adjustments to the presentation ‘in the moment’, so needs it to be positioned on the stage where she will be presenting. She needs to consistently have view of her notes and the next slide view. She will provide either an HDMI or VGA connector for his Apple Mac.
A data projector to connect to her laptop, projected onto a large enough screen that everyone has full view of it.
out – and needs to connect to a full sound system.
Sound for the full audio she uses with the presentation. This connects to her laptop computer in the standard way – the stereo head phone out – and needs to connect to a full sound system.
If the size of the venue and number of participants requires it, a lapel microphone (or equivalent – hand held, headset, etc) will be required to amplify his voice as well. A countryman headset mic is preferred.
If you are unable or unwilling to provide the above setup, you MUST confirm this with Zanele or her agent as part of confirming the event.
As a Global Speaker, Zanele has captivated global audiences with her sensational keynotes and thought-provoking unlearning facilitations.
She challenges long-standing company dogmas while developing her audiences with her unique, humorous stories and insightful views around the future of work and creating cultures of continuous self-disruption.
Zanele completed her undergraduate studies at the University of KwaZulu-Natal and engaged in two study abroad opportunities in Canada and the USA.
Zanele began her career as a primary school educator, teaching three of South Africa’s official languages and Natural Sciences & Technology to bright young minds. This was when she came to the realisation that the future skills so highly sought-after, were skills that were easily exhibited by children in the forms of inquisitiveness, frankness, resilience etc.
This indicated that a large chunk of the work to be done by society was less about learning, but more around unlearning limiting frameworks and relearning the capacity to think and act creatively.
Zanele now works with TomorrowToday Global and has since assisted clients such as ENS Africa, Marsh & McLennan Companies, First Rand, RMB and The Discovery Group to approach an uncertain future with confidence.
In 2019, she was recognised by Avance Media as the 45th Most Influential Young South African on the final list of 100 young South Africans.
In the same year, Zanele became the winner of the Professional Speakers Association’s Speaker Factor Competition, making her the very first speaker to attain this award in Southern Africa.
In 2020, she made the Junior Chamber International (SA)’s list of 21 Top Outstanding Young Persons.
She now serves fellow speakers, coaches, consultants and trainers as the KwaZulu-Natal Chapter President of the Professional Speakers Association of Southern Africa.
