Sally Mabelle Speaker


My mission is to catalyze a culture of authenticity, collaboration and innovation through empowering people to express their "Voice of Leadership".

The 'Voice of Leadership' is a voice and presence that is clear, confident, and connected physically, mentally, emotionally, and energetically.

I've spent 25+ years developing the ‘Voice of Leadership’ method of developing positive presence and influence.  Combining my professional background in Communication, Education, Psychology, and Acting,  I now promote and teach the essential leadership skills of voice projection, emotional connection, and presence to help people step up and show up to make a powerful difference for themselves, their teams, and their organisations. 

I was born and raised in the US and worked in project management, customer service,  sales, and facilitation for software and leadership development companies before taking a leap to follow my passion as a professional actor and personal and professional development teacher. Always passionate about learning and growing, I received my B.A. with honours at the University of Virginia, a Masters degree in Education, at Chestnut Hill College in Philadelphia, and a Spiritual Psychology certification at the University of Santa Monica, California.  I also completed many acting, dance, and voice courses with various teachers in the US, the UK, and India. 

I am a dual citizen of the USA and New Zealand and am currently based in central Auckland.  I love making local and international connections and helping to create a more connected world.



Sally works with a wide range of clients ranging from executives needing focussed coaching in certain areas to large groups and corporations. Based in Auckland, she has also worked  in the US and the Pacific. 

Sally tailor-designs programs to suit your particular needs. She employs specific tools and techniques as well as facilitates her clients in finding their own 'voice of leadership'.   Some of Sally's clients have included:
