Dale was born in Zimbabwe, university educated in South Africa and lived in the UK for six years before finally deciding to call Australia home. Dale lives on the North Shore in Sydney, with her husband Allan and son Kieran.
Having set up speaking programs in Cape Town, Dale moved to the UK where she pitched and secured Citigroup Foundation sponsorship for an innovative SpeakersBank training program and managed a team of trainers for the project. This led to her invitation to be a member of the SpeakersBank UK board (now Speakers’ Trust). Dale then brought the SpeakersBank training model to Australia (SpeakersBank Australia Incorporated) where she has worked with multiple companies, non-profit organisations and individuals.
Dale’s many speaking awards include Distinguished Toastmaster (the highest Toastmaster education award) and semi-finalist in the World Championship of Public Speaking in 2017. She was appointed President for Professional Speakers Australia NSW/ACT for 2019. Most importantly, she has helped thousands of people find their voice.
It is just as important to be able to communicate well as it is to do your job well. Speaking up at meetings, giving presentations, making short speeches: every time you demonstrate your confidence and capacity to communicate, you increase your value in the workplace. The Speaking Formula shows you how to overcome nerves, structure your ideas, communicate clearly and deliver with impact.
