Claire Duffy's blog about public speaking and communication (in real life). Speak well, do well!
I’m Claire Duffy, and Speak For Yourself is my Sydney based communications practice. I have 25 years experience getting messages to audiences in ways they’ll understand. My career includes senior leadership in government, arts and culture, education, professional services, and non-profits.
I work with individuals and organisations who want to be clear. To think, communicate and present well.
I’ve helped bankers, universities, engineers, project managers, human services agencies, arts companies, museums, and schools. I love to work with people moving to new jobs, facing important speaking occasions, or seeking (and winning!) scholarships, prizes and awards.
I’m especially proud to have coached a Rhodes Scholar, and a Churchill Fellow.
I have a special interest in working with women, and with students and young people. I count many award winning school debaters and public speakers among my trainees.
I have a Master’s degree in Public Policy and a BA DipEd from Sydney University, where I now present courses in their Centre for Continuing Education .
