About me


My name is Catrina Poor. I'm a professionally trained opera singer, actor and public speaking coach. I've performed on stages across the world, and worked with clients ranging from tech CEOs and professors, to radio personalities and Shakespearean actors. 

My performance techniques helped them become more clear, more memorable, and more effective. 

My skills are distilled from my experience on the stage into a program of vital tools, designed to bring your communication to the next level.

I'll teach you to grab an audience's attention and hold it; 

to own your stage, whether it's a meeting room with a new idea to pitch, ... or a conference with 5.000 people in the audience. 

With me, your voice will become your

greatest asset.

With exercises tailored to address

the tensions that hold you back.   

I'll teach you to control your nerves, 

structure your talking points, and build interest and 

anticipation in your audience, recreating the adrenaline of the work environment

right here in my studio.

With techniques I've developed over 10 years as a performer, I'll teach you to naturally improve your diction, breathing and vocal timbre.


What my clients have to say


"Highly recommended.

If you want to improve your overall voice performance, Catrina Poor is the coach you want to work with.

She has the ability to explain every single nuance when it comes to the art of speaking/singing,

no matter how abstract the matter at hand might appear.

I'm an academically trained conference interpreter

who has been working in the language business for over a decade,

and yet Mrs. Poor was able to provide me with an astonishing amount of new information

that helped me to improve my performances significantly.

To top it off, she is a very kind and funny person.   

5 stars!"

"Catrina Poor is a wonderful and passionate teacher,

whether it´s her acting, speech or Shakespeare classes.

She helped me navigate through complex plays and characters with her

knowledge, wit and flexibility.

Always supportive and looking for what would benefit me the most and make me

grow as an actor, in a warm and welcoming environment.

She definitely is my number 1 recommendation for actors who

want to expand their acting skills.  No matter if you are a beginner or a full-time pro.


A true treasure for the Viennese acting community!"
