About Me

I understand the very real fear many people experience when speaking in front of groups of people. However, I know that everyone—given effective coaching—can become a confident and engaging speaker. 

One Perfect Speech came about when my decades as an English teacher and writing tutor, overlapped with my passion for public speaking.  From helping people present successful speeches, I grew into a multi-faceted business, teaching every aspect of public speaking to clients of all skill levels. 

What sets One Perfect Speech apart is my focus on each client’s unique needs and requirements; there is no one-size-fits-all plan. After assessing a client, I develop a personalized plan to fit both their timeline and their goal. Using my Proven Approach, I guide the client through a step-by-step program that guarantees they are prepared, poised, and confident.

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 experience as an etiquette coach, I am perfectly positioned to get clients from fearful to fantastic.

I am a proud member of Toastmasters International, where I achieved both my Competent Communicator and Competent Leadership Awards. I have served as Club President and am currently a Toastmasters Club Mentor and Adviser.
