About the City's Organizers

  • Bronwyn Hesketh

    I have THE coolest job on the planet. I get to work with extraordinary human beings on a daily basis, connecting them with audiences who need to hear what they have to say. In fact - it's not even a job: it's an adventure and way of life for me. I see it as healing the planet, one audience at a time. I am a founder member of the Professional Speakers Association of Southern Africa and sat on that board for two years. I have also served on the regional committee for the South African Association for the Conference Industry. Speakers Inc was also the pioneering South African agency to belong to the International Association of Speaker Bureaus. Until recently I sat on the Cape Town Branch committee of the Business Women's Association, and currently sit on the Board of the Cape Town chapter of the PSASA. I also own an independent gym with my husband, and - my most important job of all - I am a homeschool mom to my eight year old daughter.
