Sophie is the Co-founder and CEO of VirtualSpeech, an award-winning education platform that combines e-learning with practice exercises online and in virtual reality.
Sophie started VirtualSpeech in 2015 as a way to overcome her fear of public speaking using VR.
Since then, VirtualSpeech has developed a catalogue of 30+ courses focused on communication and interpersonal skills, from public speaking to active listening, leadership, sexual harassment prevention, and more.
VirtualSpeech has helped hundreds of thousands of people across 130 countries to improve their skills and confidence using VR and AI, and Sophie has appeared on BBC World News, Forbes, and The Wall Street Journal talking about these learning technologies.
