If you’re looking for a young, energetic speaker for your organisation or event, let’s chat!
I offer the fresh perspective of a Gen Y-er who understands that success isn’t handed to you on a plate. I’ve seen what it takes to stand out and succeed in a professional environment, and I also know the challenges of starting out as an entrepreneur.
When I speak, I aim to inspire people to make positive changes and to challenge the way they think. I am super passionate about everything I teach, and I bring this energy to all my presentations.
Entertaining and teaching an audience of 60 women is definitely not an easy task but Christina did it with ease and style. The energy in the room after her stint on stage was electric. Can’t recommend Christina highly enough!
– Sheryl Thai, CEO, League of Extraordinary Women
I believe we learn best when we’re engaged and entertained, which is why all my presentations are highly interactive. Audience members will be eyeballing each other (literally), getting out of their seats and encouraged to Instagram…(but no Tony Robbins-esque fire-walking stunts, I’m afraid. My insurance doesn’t cover me for that).
I’ve spoken at organisations and conferences in Australia, the Philippines and the USA. My audience consists mostly of driven young professionals and entrepreneurs – but I also speak to university students and podcasters.
Christina Canters is an inspiring speaker. Her presentation on improving presentations was a huge hit with our students. Many of these same students told me that they successfully applied Christina’s tips and suggestions in their final presentations with great success!

Associate Dean, New York Institute of Technology
Below are speaking topics I get asked to present most frequently. If you have a specific topic in mind, please contact me – I’m happy to speak about tailoring a workshop or keynote for you.
If you’re from a school or university, click here for speaking and workshop topics specifically for students.
Each of these topics can be delivered as a small group workshop or interactive seminar for larger groups.
1. Small Talk Skills
Want to be more effective? You’ve got to be able to communicate well – and small talk is where it all starts. This highly practical session teaches easy and effective conversation skills, and provides a safe environment in which to practice. Participants will build the skills and confidence to communicate effectively at work, at networking events and in social situations.
2. Create Your Personal Elevator Pitch
Many people lack the ability to clearly explain what they ‘do’ – and to speak it with confidence. Unfortunately, it holds them back from creating clients, referrals and ultimately, achieving the success they want. This workshop will challenge people to think differently about how they speak about themselves, and provides simple, practical ways to help them effectively answer the question: “What do you do?”
3. Public Speaking Made Simple
The majority of people fear public speaking more than they fear death. In this presentation, participants will discover how to how to overcome nerves, structure a presentation, deliver it with confidence and handle Q&A like a ninja.
4. Pitch To Win
You may have a great business idea, but if you can’t explain it simply and clearly, it won’t get very far. In this workshop, participants will learn how to construct and deliver an engaging 2-5 minute business pitch.
5. From Architect To Entrepreneur – why I quit my job to travel the world, start a business and sing in public
A keynote-style presentation about what it takes to leave a promising career to follow your passion and venture into the unknown world of business. Participants with be inspired to set their own comfort challenges, find their unique strengths, overcome their fears and dream big.
I work with select clients one-on-one to help them build confidence in themselves and communicate in a way that is authentic and, most importantly, effective. Please see my coaching page for more information!
I was originally drawn to Christina because of her genuine, down to earth, caring and laugh out loud funny personality. All the coaching tips I received from her were really practical and some have actually been invaluable life lessons.
– Sarah, HR manager
We are likely to work together well if:
- You understand that confidence and communication are skills that CAN be learned and developed
- You want to advance your career, but you know your lack of clear, confident communication plays a part in holding you back
- You are committed to your professional and personal development
- You are willing to get out of your comfort zone
Christina was heaven sent. After the first test run of my presentation, it became clear that I was very nervous and not presenting the complex ideas in an engaging, concise way.
The pointers Christina gave me and her calm, positive persona gave me the confidence to approach the presentation feeling prepared and excited. Even though the material I was presenting was highly technical, Christina was able to assist me with the visual slides and how to approach what I was saying. Needless to say the presentation went exceedingly well.
– Simon, Architect
