“When we become that which we were always destined to be, everything else falls into place.” – ZoyaSpeaks

Zoya made the leap out of the comfort zone called corporate SA in 2014 and traded medical aid and pension funds for uncertainty, courage, and purpose.

A year after leaving corporate, she found herself standing on a world stage inspiring audiences in Las Vegas. She spends her time now as a Speaker, MC, Coach, and Facilitator.

Zoya believes that each of us has a FIRE inside of us – she’s here today to stoke your FIRE!


Zoya is the past Southern African Evaluation Champion, the 2015/16 Public Speaking Champion and represented the continent at the World Championships of Public Speaking.

She has her own TED talk titled “Using tradition to renegotiate our African identity.”
She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Rhodes University, a certificate in African Thought Leadership from the Thabo Mbeki Leadership Institute (TMALI) a certificate in Leadership from the Gordon Institute of Business (GIBS) and is an accredited Organisational Design Facilitator.

She has spoken at numerous conferences locally and abroad, her most recent being at the inaugural Africa Shared Value Summit 2017.
