Who We Are

Quints Diction and Social Polish Academy is an upscale, boutique enterprise specialising in personal elocution coaching. It is a Corporate Affairs Commission registered training institution on Diction, Elocution, Public Speaking, Social Polish and Life Skills.
Today, good diction is on the decline. We are a nation of people who mumble, speak too quickly, or are generally too lazy to make the effort to speak clearly.
We are committed to helping our clients improve their verbal communication skills. We provide customised diction coaching fully suited to our clients’ time schedule, personal motivation and preferred learning style. We work with schools, individuals, corporate organisations and government agencies.
We transform Nervous Speakers into Confident Speakers and Mumblers into clear, interesting speakers.

“You are perceived in three major ways: What you say, how you say what you say and how you appear.”
