Instructors

Sarah Ewen

I am an internationally experienced public speaking trainer, facilitator, coach and speech writer with a desire to actively listen and partnering with others to improve their public speaking at their own pace. I regularly take to the stage myself to deliver speeches, compete in speaking competitions and even braved stand-up comedy. I have a passion for empowering others to feel comfortable on stage with an ability to deliver their key messages in an authentic way. I bring energy, insight and honest feedback and most importantly I have a heart to see YOUR public speaking dreams become a reality.

Tarek Said

I work with people to overcome the fear of public speaking, develop ideas in a clear and concise way and build genuine rapport with the audience. My passion is to empower people to connect with their true inner selves and share it with the world. I believe public speaking training is all about learning how to connect with others. It is not about delivering polished yet robotic presentations, rather it is about developing natural and authentic style. It is a skill that we all need, not only on stage, but also in our everyday life.
