Meet the Team – Baby Talk

happy baby communicationOur team of coaches all have one thing in common – we are all passionate about the concept and use of signing with our pre-speech children and beyond. Because of this, most of us are signing mums and we all have an element of teaching in our background through different areas.

We work as a team and it is important to us that parents and educators attending our workshops have an insight into our own experiences and therefore our passion.

My name is Robyn Holt. I’m married to Andrew and have two children, Benjamin (8) and Dominic (5). My husband and I have come through the ranks with Baby Talk® Baby Sign Language – firstly using it with both Benjamin and Dominic, then with me as a Coach and finally we purchased the Baby Talk® business in September 2009. As parents we have found it a wonderful tool – it certainly saved the sanity of both parents and children!

My background is in Marketing and Accounting and I still do some work as an accountant.

Apart from Baby Talk® and being Mum, in my spare time I work a reasonable amount with kids other than my own. I’m very involved in Girls’ Brigade both locally and nationally – almost 20 years as a leader; I co-lead a mainly music group; and lead Kids Praise at our church. And I’ve had two wonderful years learning NZSL.
