Annelies Fujarczuk, Chief Word Nerd
Let me start off by saying this: I couldn't walk until I was a year and a half, but I could speak coherently at 9 months.
My point here is that I love to talk and I'm really good at it, but the joy of running my mouth has not always served me well.
Before I was a speech coach, I worked in television. Actually, let me flesh that out a little. I worked in television with a crew that really didn't like me, and in retrospect, I really don't blame them. I was totally new in the industry, they had a rhythm, and I was perpetually out of sync with them.
The only problem with that was that I still had a job to do, and the longer we worked together, the less they liked me. The less they liked me, the less I had the courage to open my mouth, use my words, and own my voice.
It was awful. I felt like a loser. A fraud. A liability.
Eventually I left, found my voice again, and founded Descriptor as a safe-haven for those who felt like I did. My business is a bit of a communications agency with a twist: I coach, create and consult online and in-person to make sure that my clients sound their best however they choose to express themselves.
So if you need some help behind the mic, if you're smack-dab in the middle of a creative block, or if you need a reminder why communication matters, I'm your girl.
A little on me outside the office: HBA from Queen's University in English Language and Literature with a minor in Music (Ethnomusicology,) Honours Diploma from Humber College in Broadcast Television and Videography, member of the Royal Conservatory of Music, and I hosted a talk show on RogersTV called "Her Business, Her Voice." I'm rarely without a pen in my hand, I'm a closet Metallica fan, and I have never successfully solved a Rubik's cube. One day though. One day.
