Posted on: May 18th, 2016 by Butler Academy 3 Comments

Move forward for a professional approach to manners! The South African Butler Academy team is hosted on the incredible morning show on Heart 104.9 Thursday`s with Tracey Lange.


Tracey is a self-confessed triple-B girl, bright, bold and bubbly with a boisterous laugh that gives her away every time. She is known for her infectious energy and is a well-known face on the social scene.


In addition to her radio career, spanning over the last eight years, Tracey presents the Afrikaans lifestyle show Bravo! She is also quite the media personality and has been voted as one of Cosmopolitan’s Awesome Women and one of SA’s Top IT Girls by Elle Magazine in the last two years.


As an ambassador of a leading shoe brand, you will rarely see her with the same shoes more than once and thus she has a shoe closet that could rival that of Carrie Bradshaw’s!

Catch Tracey between 9 and 12:00 as she hosts a three hour audio indulgence that goes back to the heart of radio: quality music presented by a likeable and connected personality.


The South African Butler Academy covers the world of Etiquette, what to do when things go south… How to entertain and the best part “Braai & Office Etiquette”
