Speaking doesn’t
always mean

you’re being heard

How would you like to change that?

My clients have succeeded in overcoming the stress and anxiety around speaking English, whether they’re speaking to an audience of 2 or 2,000.

I can’t wait to help you do the same!

Professional Speaking Coaching

Do you want to really be understood and make an impact the next time you speak English for work, whether it’s during an internal presentation or in front of a formal audience?

Do you want to feel more confident and less uncomfortable? Way more articulate and way less awkward?

How about if you could take the stress and hesitation and make it disappear?

Personalised professional speaking coaching sessions are the answer.

90% of our presentation anxiety, a.k.a stage fright, comes from lack of preparation. Through my unique process, you will transform that panicked anxiety to prepared poise.

Example projects include:

  • Ted Talks
  • Keynotes & Roundtables
  • Pitches
  • Presentations
  • Media training
  • Interview preparation

 

Conversation Coaching

Have you ever had to make small talk with international associates or potential investors in English, a language that isn’t your own?

Have you ever been invited to a dinner party or work event only to discover when you arrive that you are expected to chat the evening away in English?

Have you always wished to travel the world, but your English language skills are holding you back?

Working on your conversational English one-on-one, you will feel your nerves melt away, your fear decrease and your confidence grow. Those awkward pauses searching for your words will suddenly evaporate and be replaced by fluidity.

Say goodbye to agonising over every word before it comes out of your mouth. I’m here to help.

CORE4 Principles for Successful Speaking

After almost 10 years of working with clients, I developed my CORE4 Principles for Successful Speaking. Here you’ll get the foundation you need to ground yourself in your professional speaking and learn some of the tools you need for an impactful presentation, pitch, meeting or keynote that really captivates your audience.

Working with Perdita was really profound, helpful and definitely uplifting. It gave me confidence in the fact that I could just dare to speak – no matter if it was perfect. As a result of working with Perdita, I can now master long presentations in English without waking up with a headache the next day! I recommend Perdita for her natural empathy, our lively sessions and the interaction between coach and learner.

Avant d’être coachée par Perdita, je n’osais pas prendre la parole en public. Maintenant, je sens que je suis plus à l’aise et que je peux tenir une conversation même si certaines phrases ou expressions ne sont pas parfaites.

Perdita est extrêmement bienveillante et aide à se sentir plus en confiance dans l’expression orale. Elle s’adapte complètement à mon niveau et à mes besoins de progression. Je me sens vraiment encouragée et motivée quand je travaille avec elle.

Sessions with Perdita are really personalised. She plans our sessions depending on my needs and always suggests a variety of methods for improving. She is very thorough, working with me until she is completely sure I understand. 

I can now speak during meetings and I can work in English, which was impossible before working with Perdita. Before working together, I had no confidence and didn’t dare speak in English. Thanks to our sessions, I can now speak in English without any embarrassment!

I’m a Perdita addict! Before, I was petrified of not being able to understand people when they spoke English. It was like there was a wall of glass in front of me and I couldn’t comprehend what people were saying. I was so stressed, but Perdita helped me a lot. She gave me the key to success of being happy with my English! Perdita is like a haute couture designer when it comes to professional English speaking. With her, you get two services in one: technical clarity and the ability to communicate with confidence. Before I was scared and now I can speak freely, I can work in English, I can be at an international dinner and understand everything people say. The glass wall is gone!

about

Perdita Andrews

Throughout my life, I have been on both sides of the spotlight.
Both sides of the camera.
Both sides of the microphone.
And, I now live in a country where the native language is not my own.

My educational background, professional experience and personal circumstances put me in the unique position of knowing exactly how you feel, because I have stood in your shoes before. I know your struggles because, at one point or another, they have been mine, too. And best of all, I know how to overcome them. 

My higher education helped me master the art of speaking, performing and writing. My professional career gave me the practical and highly necessary expertise in those same three areas. Today, I think of them as the foundation of my own “Triple Threat” program; the one I offer my clients. 

I was first trained in New York City at a school for the dramatic arts in their “Triple Threat” program (acting, singing and dancing). I later studied journalism and radio broadcasting in Toronto. As for my provenance, I am Canadian born, a previous US Green Card holder and a former resident of the UK, which means I have practical firsthand knowledge of both US and UK English.

I have been helping my clients succeed and captivate their audiences in English since 2013. They have launched their dream businesses, booked new clients over Zoom and conquered the arena speaking at international industry conferences. And I have been lucky enough to have championed them along the way.
