Hi, I’m Miss Cathy
I founded the business when I was 20 years old, as a sole speech and drama teacher. A decade later, Speak Up has developed a full primary drama syllabus, a series of in-demand creative holiday workshops, and has over 800 students participating in weekly lessons across our Brisbane venues. More importantly, the Speak Up community is thriving and I am surrounded by a team of remarkable women.
I have Speech and Drama to thank for that.
Speech and Drama lessons made me the person I am today. It taught me how to talk to people, to believe in myself, and gave me the license to express my creativity.
It’s no wonder communication, confidence and creativity are our core values. I am where I am today because these highly transferable skills were cultivated in me as a child.
