Present, perform and be empowered

These days, it’s not enough to have big ideas – you need to be able to express them effectively. At CIA, I prepare students for a communication-savvy world, teaching them to be creative and confident speakers.

CIA began in 1997 when I saw the need for quality speech and drama tuition. Since then, my passion has grown the business to where it is today. I love to teach, inspire and create.

My classes aim to empower students with communication skills and build their self-esteem through public speaking, eisteddfods, AMEB and Trinity College of London examinations. Small group lessons ensure each student is given the time and attention they need to shine. The program is exciting, challenging and consistently produces outstanding results.

Every year I stage a musical theatre production at the Brisbane Powerhouse, showcasing students’ acting, singing and dancing talents. They get to experience the exciting rehearsal process as well as the buzz of performing onstage.

Most importantly, the CIA program is fun! Students interact with their peers and are encouraged to think creatively, improvise and grow in confidence.
