Hannah Mangenda (BA, BA (Hons), MA) enjoys wearing many hats – among others those of facilitator, academic, teacher, actress, marketer and manager of various events – and likes to draw out and foster an awareness of interconnectedness and a unity of vision wherever she is involved. She is therefore highly interested in the intersection of communication, training, and the arts and the ways in which they can reinforce each other.
Apart from her varied professional experience in basic and higher education as well as corporate settings, Ms Mangenda has also had the opportunity to gain valuable experience in effective communication in her marriage of more than ten years and as a mother to three – very communicative - children. .
Her special interest lies in how communication in various settings can be improved through interactive and creative methods that foster community building and enable participants to look at a situation from a fresh perspective. It is this holistic view of the envisioned outcomes and her extensive professional experience that have made her a long-time collaborator with Vision in Motion and Shizaya Productions.

We have worked with Vision in Motion team for a few years now. They understand our business and culture. The strength of their offering lies in their team building products and activities. They bring innovation, creativity and unique offerings in the market. They are consistent and professional, always a pleasure working with the team. Once contracted, we rest assured that they will deliver of the highest standard.
Vision in Motion has been working with Suncoast Casino for the last 5-6 years and they are still my partners in people development for the following reasons: Their offering is entirely unique. They use multiple learning styles in their approach in order to embed and entrench the subject matter. I believe them to be very successful, even transformational in any learning that deals with Customer Service, Diversity and Team Effectiveness. Vision in Motion’s Director, Rodney Frank, is himself a very forthcoming and honest individual who invests himself wholly in what he does. He always gives off his best, and brings a wash of energy into his subject matter. He has always tried his best to meet our needs in terms of pricing and timing.
“Rodney Frank has a strong sense of overview, he sees the vision and drives hard to make that goal a reality. In an industry that demands perfection at all times, Franks ability to engage and command up front whilst paying acute attention to the finest details is rare. Vision in Motion is building momentum with each well planned step, a joy and pleasure to work with.”
“Vision in Motion is an agile and youthfull organization that provides UKZN Extended Learning with the support to enhance many of our leadership programmes, with such activities as story telling; strategic exercises; breathing and stretching and laughter yoga. The activities run by Vision in Motion support the learning of the Programmes and also give the delegates time to reflect on themselves as an holistic being. I Would recommented Vision in Motion to help your team think out of the box”
