Speaking with Impact.
Event Moderator and MC
Sandra is passionate about the theatre and loves entertaining people, which is why she brings together the world of theatre and public speaking. What can performing actors teach us? A lot! From projecting our voices to bringing our words to life and learning how to use the stage are three of her most important. Mastering the art will ensure audiences are engaged so that they remember the message when they leave the room.
