What people are saying about speak

“When I first came across SPEAK! Canada, I really didn’t see how it would benefit me since I have taken several speaking programs in the past and have been speaking for many years. Once I was in the program, I realized it was unlike any other program I had experienced. Charlene was masterful at drawing out greater clarity within me, really nailing it, resulting in a crystal-clear message. The intimate nature, one-on-one attention and peer support fostered a quick learning curve and was highly effective in getting almost immediate feedback. If you know Charlene, she does everything with purpose and with the end in mind. Upon completion of SPEAK, I ended up several deliverables that I have been able to implement immediately. Thank-you Charlene, and thank you SPEAK! Canada!”

Janine Brolly, Advocate | Facilitator | Speaker

“The SPEAK program is so much more than learning how to present and speak. I found a community of women that offer support, encouragement and friendship. My journey with SPEAK has really tapped into my purpose and helped me dig deep to cut through all the BS and just get to the heart of my matter. The coaching and accountability is bang on. The modules are perfectly timed and progress beautifully to uncover clarity and a strong message. I can’t recommend SPEAK enough. In fact I will probably come back to this program over and over! ”

Zena Amundsen, Certified Financial Planner | Adding Heart to Business + Money
