Testimonials

I really loved the time spent on this … looking at myself from a different angle. I found the exercises on the throat and voice projection very practical and helpful. The activities were gentle and well thought out, with a clear outcome.

One of the most rewarding aspects about the workshop was Natasha and Rosie’s gift of time for reflection … Much to digest, much to process, much to be inspired by.

I have learnt so much from this workshop … It’s really empowering to be invited to contribute to a circle that has a shared respect and purpose. 

Thank you for setting this space up so that everyone could contribute when/how they felt they needed to. Rosie and Natasha, your passion and generosity in sharing your experiences is invaluable to me.

I have to confess I had visions of the usual “stand here, say this, talk now, don’t talk now”, stage-between-us, standard presentation lecture. Having worked hard to escape from the corporate mold in my life, part of me was apprehensive. Perfect Pitch … was none of those things. It was intimate. Subtle. Big picture ideas and simple truths tied softly together with ribbons of practical information.

This is awesome, I really recommend this to anyone [wanting] to improve their public speaking.
