Krystal is and has been a member of Toastmasters International since 2016 after being a participant on a speech craft program to now delivering these workshops herself with her team.

Krystal’s Public Speaking debut as a speaker began in 2012, when asked by her training centre, where she was a student to speak about her trials and tribulations with mental illness.

Krystal’s honest and Frank account of her ordeals, pain and suffering with depression became an inspirational and motivational speeches and talks to which she delivered in many organisations both corporate and voluntary sectors to now becoming a trainer and instructor. Working with people from a mental health, physical or intellectual disabilities, Krystal knows only to well that a disability should in no way hinder a person’s desires to get along in life.

Krystal has over the past 7 years learned the fundamentals of speaking in public and mastering the art of presentation skills, Krystal has become involved in empowering others to find their voice and speak with confidence.

On the stage, behind the lectern, off the stage and everything in between Krystal can assist you to be the speaker you envisioned yourself to be.

Just like you Krystal has started with no experience, terrified of speaking in public, so much so that she used get very unwell before taking to the stage.

Being involved in Toastmasters has allowed Krystal to practice her skills, learn from her peers and constantly developing and learning the craft of public speaking.

Krystal and the team are looking forward to delivering speech craft public speaking workshops to empower participants to unlock their potential and to speak with confidence in all areas of their life.
