Anserie Badenhorst is the Founder and Owner of Carpe Diem Drama School (Pty) Ltd.  The school is currently 28 years old.

Anserie writes speeches since 1996, she started in Kimberley writing and coaching speeches when her eldest son – Louwrie, Gr 4 – was the overall winner in Kimberley in the age group Gr 4 – 7 in 1996 (My first victory in Public Speaking).
After we relocated to Kempton Park in 1997 my two sons participated in the same year for their new school where:
Louwrie (that time in  Gr 5) came first in Afrikaans Public Speaking and second in English Public speaking.
Both her Boys were ALWAYS a force to be reckoned with. Great Speeches, great talent, and of course – great coaching!
Since then I never looked back – even my Drama School Children went from strength to strength in Public Speaking and Eisteddfods.

Anserie is also an Adjudicator at Public Speaking Competitions – Individual as well as Group Prepared Persuasive Competitions and Eisteddfods and knows exactly what Adjudicators want. Her speeches do exceptionally well at Competitions like ATKV, On the tip of your Tongue, Radical Speech Competition, the Nationals School Speech Competition  and Artistatue – where her Speeches – Group and Individual – has won several times, year after year, or went to the National finals at several occasions.
