“Perfect Pitch was born as a program for women to intentionally meditate upon the factors in their lives which keep them in a sticky web of fear about owning their voices… It is luminescence by which to clear the cobwebs.”
Perfect Pitch was enjoyed once again in beautiful Hobart on October 8/9.
The light and lofty Avalon City Retreat, ‘The Pod’, hosted a gorgeous crowd of women sharing story-telling and support…
… and even song!

Read about the spacious potency of Perfect Pitch to bring positive change.
Perfect Pitch is co-created and jointly facilitated by Rosalie Martin and Natasha Cica.
Rosalie is a speech pathologist, criminologist and Courage & Renewal facilitator. She is passionate about working with people – adults and children – to improve and perfect their communication skills. Rosalie was awarded 2017 Tasmanian Australian of the Year for her pro bono work supporting literacy in Tasmania’s prison population. She has had extensive experience as a presenter, facilitator and clinician.
We want to see more women enter and indeed excel in our parliaments, boardrooms and leadership roles across all sectors in Australia. I welcome Perfect Pitch as an innovative program that seeks to empower women to find their own, confident voice. The Hon Julie Bishop MP, Australia’s Minister for Foreign Affairs, and Deputy Leader of the Liberal Party of Australia 2007-2018.
‘The under-representation of women in leadership positions in business and government detracts from Australia’s overall well-being, and from the success of individual organisations. That should concern men as well as women. Perfect Pitch is a program that helps women to be stronger advocates in their own cause adding value to organisations and to our entire community.’ Saul Eslake, former Chief Economist of Bank of America Merrill Lynch Australia and of the Australia & New Zealand Banking Group, Vice-Chancellor’s Fellow at the University of Tasmania.
‘Perfect Pitch is clearly making a significant and positive difference in the lives of a number of women with unrealised leadership potential, by providing them with practical and accessible strategies for their personal development.
Congratulations to [Natasha] and Rosalie and best wishes for the expanded series of workshops proposed for 2017.’ The Hon Will Hodgman MP, Premier of Tasmania.
