About Teen Talk

Finding your voice leads to freedom. It’s within who we are. It is our essence. It is our core. It changes lives.

After the birth of my daughter Adèle, I knew I could not let her grow up without a voice. I was that girl in grade school and high school; shy and withdrawn. I had many ideas but never knew how to share them. I was overwhelmed with emotion and never knew how to express it. As I shifted into motherhood, I wanted my daughter to feel empowered at all times to speak her mind listen to her voice and master the art of communicating effectively. I knew this was the time to be the example – to share my passion for these areas!

Teen Talk was born from a conversation. ‘Can you do a workshop with my grade 8 students?’ I said: ‘Yes.’ I am an authentic soul who connects people to living life and having fun. There is no better way than bringing your voice alive. I help our teens learn to communicate with ease, brighten their outlook on ‘public’ speaking and lighten the process with humor and fun!

Tailored to youths aged 12-15, the program aims to help teen’s master self-confidence and self-expression. As a public speaking coach and the founder of the Teen Talk™ concept, communication skills can make all the difference in a young person’s future success and personal happiness: “If your son or daughter can express themselves with confidence and feel good about themselves, it gives them a huge leg up.”

The key, is to make the experience fun and inspiring: “Speaking is about so much more than a presentation. I want this program to give our youth the tools to express themselves with ease but, more importantly, powerfully celebrate their unique voices. That is what will take them far.”

Nathalie’s public speaking course helped give me the self confidence I needed to take my public speaking ability to a whole new level. I became aware of and learned how to get rid of all of the filler words I was using so often.

Each week she gave us new ideas and information that we could then put to practice during the classes. It was amazing to see all the participants improve dramatically week by week. I highly recommend working with her! Thanks to Nathalie’s course I decided to join Toastmasters to continue to improve my speaking skills.
