Our Story

Speak for Life was set up in 2013, when Thila decided to change her career direction. Prior to this, Thila had worked extensively in WA health sector, specialising in communication difficulties after an acquired brain injury.

As Thila was born and raised in Singapore, her accent and communication style was noticeably different in comparison to the general Australian population. During her early career years, Thila embarked on working on improving her accent, in a bid to be more clearly understood.

During this journey, Thila realised the unmet needs of other professionals who spoke English as a second language, or simply wanted to speak better. Speak for Life was born to cater to the communication needs of professionals in Australia.

About Thila Raja

Thila graduated from Curtin University of Technology, WA, in 2003, with a bachelors degree in Human Communication Sciences (Speech Pathology). Ever since then, she has worked as a Speech Pathologist across Australia and Singapore, in medical, disability and community settings.

Thila’s expertise centers around cognitive communication, voice, stuttering and accent reduction, and is a Certified Practising member of Speech Pathology Australia. Thila also holds a management position at a not-for-profit organisation.
