No-one was born with these skills but anyone can learn how to speak and present with IMPACT

Do you want to make every presentation, pitch and conversation count?

I’m a bit obsessed about powerful presenting and making an impact.

When you speak out and have your message heard, the ripple effect can be enormous.

I’ve been busy helping experts, entrepreneurs and organisations to grow their business and their brands by harnessing the power of speaking, powerful presenting and high-level communication skills for the past 30 years.

I love the results I get working closely with my clients, knowing that when I’m done, they now have the confidence, knowledge and skills to have a real impact on the people and organisations they work with.

I am fortunate enough to work with some of Australia’s largest companies (and some of the smallest) and I love to work across industries.  Progressive companies invest in high-level communication development, the most critical skill in modern business.  Call me to explore how I can work with your team too.

Who I Work With for Public Speaking and Business Presenting Training

Whether it’s training your staff, crafting your brand message, pitching to the board, leading your team or presenting at conference, I want to help you to communicate your message with clarity, charisma and confidence.

I enjoy working with business and organisational leaders who are committed to making an IMPACT. I’m just as addicted to achieving your goals as you are.

Proud to be a CSP (Certified Speaking Professional) The CSP designation is the speaking profession’s highest earned international measure of professional platform competence. Less than 12 percent of the 5,000+ speakers worldwide, who belong to the 14 member associations of the Global Speakers Federation (GSF), currently hold this professional designation.

Just a Couple of Raving Clients


I attended one of Paula’s workshops last night– Presentation skills with a twist.  I was blown away! She is sharp, to the point and creative. There are many presentation skills workshops out there, but this was by far the most professional and inspiring workshop I have attended in years. She had everyone mesmerised by her expertise.

Talk about practice what you preach!

Paula, you surpassed my expectations as our keynote speaker. Your style, creativity, delivery, engaging persona and the list could go on. Wow! would be one word to sum up the presentation. I hope we can engage in your skills again in the near future. Our organisation was so impressed. So glad we connected. I would, and I will highly recommend you to anyone who is looking for a dynamic and engaging speaker.
