Keynote speaker and EmCee South Africa - Vanessa Raath

"Vanessa had me hanging on her every word. I love her down-to-earth style which makes her extremely approachable.

Her wealth of knowledge is highly impressive and her eagerness to share this with her audience truly appreciated."

- Belinda C


Public speaking has always been a passion of mine. The comment on the left is from an attendee at a recent conference where I was a keynote speaker. I love sharing my knowledge with others and collaborating with Recruiters from agencies or internal teams.

I have been fortunate to have been invited to present at several local and international conferences. Unfortunately, Covid has put an end to the travel associated with being an international Keynote Speaker but I am hoping that this will start again soon.
