Hey, I’m Anna.
I’m an award-winning broadcaster passionate about communication and how it can be used to fast track success in your business and life.
As the creator of the Academy by Anna, I recognized the need for easy to access training programs around public speaking, media training and personal branding. As the way we live and work changes, these skill sets become vital at every stage of your career and every position you hold. I can help you kick start your speaking career, give compelling media interviews and create unique personal brands that get you noticed.
When I’m not helping others achieve their goals, you’ll find me with my twin boys on the beach, hunting down hard to find ingredients for a new recipe and dabbling in interior design. I can’t wait to see you inside the courses and help you on your journey to achieve your goals!
