About Me

I understand the real fear many people experience when speaking up in front of others. However, it matters deeply to me that no one’s voice is silenced due to their own fears or insecurities.
One Perfect Speech came about when my work as an English teacher and writing tutor overlapped with my passion for public speaking. From helping people write and present successful speeches, I expanded into a multi-faceted business, teaching clients of all skill levels every aspect of public speaking.
I saw in my clients how improving their speaking skills positively affected their relationships and, therefore, every area of their lives. As my business grew, I found myself moving into the area of Chief Cheerleader for my clients.
By working with them to improve their communication skills, I empowered them to speak up. My positive approach – your voice is worthy of being heard! – caught fire in all aspects of their lives. In addition to developing powerful and effective speakers, much of what I do is to remind them how deserving they are of taking center stage in their own lives.
I believe it is up to each of us to make our voices heard so we can share our values, passions, concerns, and unique personalities. When we do, we are all richer for it.
I have a Bachelor of Science in English and Psychology and a post-graduate degree in Education from the University of Cape Town, South Africa. With my educational and professional background as well as my years of tutoring, I am perfectly positioned to get you from fearful to fantastic.
