Giving you the tools, tricks, and techniques to bring your performances to life in easy-to-follow, short courses both virtually and in person. Cure stage fright through theatrical techniques, working on presentation skills and communications of ideas to bring you corporate and academic success.

Public speaking made easy!

We help hit the mark in presentations to bosses and investors, facing an audience or journalist, maybe an interview in-person or online, and gain the confidence to present in any setting.

You might be:

  • an academic facing a TED talk, who secretly wants to be a YouTube sensation.

  • a leader who knows that your team could do incredible things with a bit of self confidence and unique speeches. 

  • pitching to investors for the first time, as you scale your business.

  • wanting to know how to be refined, professional and charming,  while under fire from an investigative journalist.

  • a student with a big presentation that needs a little theatrical boost.


No matter which scenario you find yourself in, you’ll be able to get  on stage or in front of a camera without fear, building catchy keynotes and presentations that stick with your audience.



Sanja Hendrick

Founder & CEO, Talent Academy

Since 2000, I’ve been working as a certified Coaching Professional who specialises in helping people cope with presentation anxiety and public speaking fear. I coach my clients in a way that utilises both their heads and their hearts to build a unique presentation that suits them and their audience. I first learned about coaching when I hit a roadblock in my own life and was struggling to move past it. The techniques I developed were so successful that friends and family began asking me for help with their own challenges for confidence. This motivated me to turn my newfound passion for public speaking into a full-time career. If you have any questions about the courses and services we offer, or would like to schedule a consultation, please get in touch today.
