My Story

I have always been fascinated by 'how' people communicate and express themselves. My interest in human behavior led me to a degree in Psychology from the University of Western Ontario, then theatre school at Ryerson University. This launched a twenty-five year career as an actor in theatre, television, film, and voice work.

Several years ago, I started a business with a partner to coach communication and presentation skills for executives in a corporate environment. Enabling people to express their messages more powerfully became my new passion.

 

My new company, Confident Communication by Angie Gei, allows me to focus on so much more than acting techniques. I regularly research and upgrade my skills to benefit my clients, who come from all walks of life.

 

I have experienced stage fright many times and have learned the techniques to 'hang my fears on' so that I am able to perform and communicate in a way that I want to, when I need to. Authentically and confidently presenting yourself is a choice and an ongoing practice. This realization has led me to develop this program, so we can be seen and heard and be present with presence. I look forward to meeting and working with you.
