Our Coaches

Who are our coaches?

Canberra Speaking School has assembled a team of world class, engaging, supportive coaches to run our programs.


Our coaches are across everything related to public speaking and debating. Our coaches include debaters that have represented most of the major local universities at the Australian Debating Championships (where they reached the final) and the Australasian Debating Championships (which they won); a former representative of Australia at the Worlds Schools Debating Championships; a recipient of the National Scholarship of Excellence for Communication Skills; and coaches with a collective lifetime of individual successes in debating and public speaking.


Our coaches are not only the best in their field – we ensure that we only hire people who can really teach.  We ensure that all of our coaches have the right personality to engage with kids, and make sure that each and every one either comes from a strong education background, or receive plenty of training before taking their own class.
