Your Confidence Coach, Michele Partridge

Michele is an award-winning business owner, public speaker, acting coach and arts and culture advocate.

After working as an actor for over ten years,  Michele then went into casting, produced short films, a feature film, video games and commercials. She has owned and operated several successful businesses including three well-known acting schools for all ages.

Michele has been teaching acting, public speaking and improv for 25 years. She has spoken on several panels about filmmaking, building a business and networking. She has sat on several judging panels including the Leos Awards (B.C.’s Oscars), Vancouver Web Fest and The Joey Awards (Young Canadian Performers Awards) among others. Michele has also been on several boards including Women In Video and Film Vancouver, Peninsula Productions and the White Rock Business Improvement Association.

She has won business awards from the Ocean Park Business Association, The Peace Arch News and the South Surrey & White Rock Chamber of Commerce. Always volunteering in her White Rock community, Michele co-founded PACA (Peninsula Arts & Culture Alliance) to help spread the word about the performing arts. Michele is also chair of the City of White Rock’s Arts and Cultural Advisory Committee.

One of the highlights for Michele was being included as a successful business profile in the 2019 B.C. Small Business Profile online publication from the B.C. Ministry of Jobs, Trade and Technology. She was thrilled that a White Rock business was one of the featured profiles as the publication includes businesses from across B.C.

In the Fall of 2020, sold her award-winning performing arts studio in White Rock, The Drama Class after eight successful years as one of the top acting studios in the lower mainland. Michele re-branded and launched Your Confidence Coach. Michele’s coaching skills are very much in demand coaching actors, business professionals, Ted Talk speakers, host events and perform.

Michele is thrilled to be nominated for the 2020 South Surrey/White Rock Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Awards, Business Leader of Year – Self Owned.

Who I’ve Worked With

“The guys loved the Improv Sessoins and so did I! To be honest, I didn’t expect them to be so successful but they may just end up being the best thing we did in the entire course. The session went very well and you were a great leader.”
– Carolyn Latzen, Business Instructor, Stenberg College
