Instructor Biography

Abigail Rice, Actress and Writer

Abigail Rice is a professional actress working in theater, TV and film. She works extensively with the Prague Shakespeare Company, bringing the magnificent words and worlds of Shakespeare to the beautiful city of Prague and her native and non-native English-speaking audiences.

She expresses her creative writing skills in the penning of a web series that helps audiences learn English as they watch; the content gaining in language complexity as they progress through the story. The fact that she also plays one of the leads makes writing this comedy a fun yet self-depreciating challenge!

Having lent her voice to multiple books, commercials and infomercials, Abigail built her own audio story app, Stories Aloud. The app delivers children’s stories packed with sound effects and music designed to help kids soak up the English language along with its pronunciation and intonation – all while they cheer on heroes, chastise baddies and laugh along to tales of magic, mystery and wonder. 

She loves working with Lenka and Lucie on the Trypod courses and helping to make doing presentations in English much easier for non-native English speakers by sharing her experience and knowledge of performance and storytelling.

Instructor Biography

Lenka Dvorakova, Speaker and public speaking coach and trainer

Lenka Dvorakova is an internationally acclaimed public speaker, coach and trainer and founder of a public speaking training program and platform where she helps non-native speakers develop the skills necessary to deliver presentations in English - and even enjoy it!

During the years she spent in diplomacy, working as an EU negotiator in the UN, and in a top managerial position in academia, she had the opportunity to listen to some wonderful speakers - and also sat through hours and hours of boring speeches. While speaking in public in any language (she speaks five languages besides her native Czech) came naturally to her, she realized that not everyone feels the same. 

Then she set herself a new mission - to prove that anyone can learn how to present in English, whatever their initial public speaking OR English skills.

She has won multiple awards in Toastmasters public speaking contests, most recently she finished runner-up and best non-native speaker in Czechoslovak championship in public speaking in English.

Instructor Biography

We are Trypod - Lucie, Lenka and Abbey, three friends and colleagues who, despite their different backgrounds, have one common goal - to help non-native speakers learn how to present in English. 

Lucie is a scientist and a science communicator: she made it to the Czech finals of FameLab, the international competition in science communications. She's got a great eye for graphic design, too, and is our expert on presentation design.

Lenka is a consultant and public speaking coach and trainer with background in academia (where she met Lucie) and screenwriting (where she met Abbey). She certainly knows how to make speeches powerful and engaging, as her several awards from international public speaking contests can prove.

Abbey is a professional actress whom you may have seen in several international productions and who stars on the stage of Prague Shakespeare Company. She's also an author and storyteller - an unbeatable combination if you want to learn the art of performing on a stage.
