Annik has over 30 years experience in being scared of speaking, declining speaking opportunities due to the fear of looking silly in front of peers and other nerve related issues. This all reached its climax in 2011 at a speaker training course – enough of wasting time worrying about what others might think – PONY Express Speakers Club was born. In between chatting-up inspiring speakers and judges, Annik loves promoting other public speaking related events and spends her time doing IMPROV, clowning or running the PONY Express Members Club and her famous ‘How to Fall in LOVE with Public Speaking’ series. In her model of the world, everyone loves public speaking as much as she loves unicorns!
