Public Speaking


Annemarie is an engaging and motivating speaker that speaks from real-life experience, sound business acumen and exstensive one on one coaching expertise. She appreciates, and shares with her listeners, the fact that mind-set is a moment-to-moment choice and with her knowledge of neuroscience and how the brain works, illustrates how you can be in control. She discusses a model of how to interact with people to get them into a “toward” state, which can be applied in every relationship.

Her fusion of real life stories and her conversational technique connect with her audience at an intimate, intense and individual level.

These presentations have been well received by organizations such as Hearing Innovations and South African Association for Audiologists (SAAA).

  • "Annemarie is an Audiologist, a business mentor and a life coach. Due to her specialised knowledge we approached her to present at conferences on a number of occasions. She gave a presentation at a conference with international speakers that I organised in February at the University of Pretoria with the title: Mindsight: Neuroscience and the Audiology Practice. She was able to captivate the audience instantly and hold their attention throughout. Her presentation was organised systematically. She included examples, case studies and narratives and focused on her audience, displaying confidence with her appearance and her presentation, conveying intellectual character. She was well-prepared and showed insight and enthusiasm. She was authoritative, clearly conveying the message that that she is an expert in her field. Annemarie is credible, professional and knowledgeable and I can highly recommend her as a public speaker."
