Real Winners, Real Prizes

Competitive students automatically get entered into Stand Up and Speak contests. Sponsored by national companies, students compete for a chance to win over $10,000 in prizes each year.

Attending Stand Up and Speak was such an amazing experience for me.  No matter of what age you are there is always something to learn. 

The team is so great with professional approach and at the same time they make classes fun and make it easy even though it’s challenging.


Simply stated, Stand Up And Speak has been a sensational ‘game changer’ for both my daughters, in turn empowering them to be the best version of themselves.

Lori-Ann is the heart and soul of this stellar program. They learn not only how to be a brilliant speaker but also an effective listener. 


I would highly recommend stand up and speak to anyone. My daughter, who is 5 years old, is excited to go to her class every Saturday.

Lori-Ann is super amazing person.

Big thanks to Lori-Ann and her staff.
