Born in New Zealand, raised in the UAE, and fortunate enough to have travelled the globe being exposed to different ways of living and working, it’s no surprise I ended up an entrepreneur.
Starting out with a laptop, a dream and a little (okay, a lot) of passion, today my team and I have evolved to help entrepreneurs do business better – no matter where they are on Earth. How?
By showing them simple ways take their messages to the world (without bombarding clients with social media and spammy emails) and – most importantly – encouraging them to share their authentic personalities and what they stand for.
Our Academy by Anna features a range of effective online communication training programmes. These help entrepreneurs transform their dreams into plans and show go- getters how to confidently share their messages through effective strategies that I use myself.
Our 2 Week Fear Detox programme, meanwhile, gets you out of your comfort zone and speaking like a boss, while our free training, Amplify, offers you free and effective communication insights and strategies.
“not everyone knows this, but i’m actually an introvert at heart… i see it as a strength of mine”
People often ask me, “why do you do what you do?”. Working on TV and radio and as an international speaker and moderator for over a decade, I began to notice that communication training was lacking a modern and more personalised approach. I saw that the people who needed the most help communicating effectively – the entrepreneurs, start-ups, and new brands of the world – didn’t know where to start.
So I set up the Academy by Anna.
Not everyone knows this, but I’m actually an introvert at heart. Mastering the art of public speaking, communicating, and talking to large groups of people was something I had to work at, using the tips and tricks I share in our academy’s programmes. I don’t believe that public speaking is about shouting your message on a stage or sounding like a scripted robot.
The Academy by Anna nurtures your natural communicator with a gentle approach that respects your personality and draws on your inherent strengths, showing you how to use them to your advantage.
We have designed our comprehensive self-directed video-based online series to give everyone the skills they need to establish contact with potential clients, leave a lasting impact, make the planet a more connected place, and share their messages with the world across a multitude of platforms.
From public speaking training to getting camera ready for media interviews, our courses are innovative and fun and (gasp!) might make you love speaking your voice.
No person wears one hat. I am an entrepreneur, communication strategist, broadcaster and writer, but I am also a daughter, wife, sister, mother and friend. I believe that to thrive in business and experience the fulfilment and happiness you deserve in your life, you must embrace your whole, authentic self. That includes your sense of humour, personality, unique talents, and values.
Looking back at my own journey – growing from a shy introvert into an award-winning broadcaster and entrepreneur – I know that no matter what you’re dreaming (read: planning!) or what’s stopping you from getting there today, effective communication can help you break through your perceived limitations. I know because I’ve been where you are. Our tools give you the power to not only transform your business and your life but, dare I say it, the world. After all, a great communicator is one that creates the most significant change.
My beliefs (paired with hard work) have offered me some incredible opportunities, for which I am grateful. I’ve been fortunate to travel the world interviewing high-profile CEOs, heads of government, and award-winning athletes. From these inspiring people,
and my clients, I continue discovering new approaches to living and working, expanding my beliefs about what makes people genuinely successful. I’ve found that opportunities are everywhere if you’re looking for them.
Which brings me to you. I want to help you find opportunities and do business better. I have built my company and academy on passion, love, and a dedication to sharing useful communications tools that help entrepreneurs just like you effectively share their stories.
I appreciate authenticity, empowerment and a platform of shared knowledge. That is why – through our free content, paid online training programmes, and more – we provide a structure that you can follow for your own communications needs, showcasing how communication is key to not only business success, but fostering a life that is creative, inspiring and fulfilled.
I know what you’re thinking… We need to talk about money, right? Yes, we are a
business. Yes, we do sell services and products (and we are grateful to earn a living this way). At the end of the day though, our core focus really is helping you get your message out there while crafting a life you love. While we do charge for our online programmes, a considerable portion of our work is offered for free.
Thank you so much for reading this far. To get your dreams rolling, I’d like to gift you access to Amplify, our beautiful 3-part video framework that showcases essential communication insights and strategies to help you get your message into the world.
I’d love to learn more about you. The best way to share your story with me and stay connected is online @ImAnnaRoberts on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube.
I love using these platforms to share beautiful, captivating content that elevates my imagination and dreams. You’ll also find my celebrations in business, motherhood, and life. I promise to always try and inspire you!
Thank you so much for dropping by. I’m thrilled that we’re connected, and I’m excited to see how we can transform your business (and the world) together.
