Ashley Hayden

Location: Based in Johannesburg



Television presenter, actress, motivational speaker, corporate trainer and MC Ashley Hayden, has travelled the globe to shoot in Europe, North and South America, Africa, and Asia, while her appearances on M-Net have ensured that she is an instantly recognizable and glamorous addition to any function.

Having taken away from the cameras to raise a young family, 2006 saw her make a welcome return to showbiz with a role in the BBC production “Coup”, as well as finding time to travel the country to host launches, conferences and MC Gala evenings.

Recent highlights include the 100th episode of “The Weakest Link”, where she won the show and donated the money to the SPCA. Dance fans were delighted to discover that she has never been one to back away from a challenge. 2008 saw her taking to the floor for a new series of “Strictly Come Dancing”, where despite breaking her toe early in the series, she and her partner Muntu Ngobane continued to the quarter finals. And 2010 saw her back on the small screen as one of the contestants in M-Net’s Survivor: Santa Carolina, a grueling undertaking that called on all her resources to make it through to the final. Having set a new Survivor record by winning 5 back to back immunity challenges, South Africa voted her as their choice of Ultimate Survivor.

A versatile and talented performer, Ashley has spent the last decade presenting on television, acting for both the big and small screen, hosting numerous events in the corporate sector, and delivering talks to selected audiences. She has been sharing the fruits of her experience with business executives, training them to face audiences and media via her Present Like a Pro Development Programme. She also speaks to female audiences with her Women Mean Business series of talks and seminars, and to mixed audiences with her presentation The Game Of Life which extrapolates lessons learned on a desert island about teamwork, leadership, and individual goals.

  • Women Mean Business
  • The Game of Life
