Who is our coach?

Ana Sousa Gavin is a SAS parent, storyteller, applied improviser and communication skills coach. She is passionate about growing people’s confidence in communicating with each other. 

The club exists since when?

It was established in 2015 as the Storytelling Club SAS, and since then we met monthly during each school year.

In 2021 we changed the name to Public Speaking Club SAS, since we moved our focus to public speaking. Storytelling is still the heart of our practice.
