The world's fastest talker, Fran Capo, has brought her motormouth to New Zealand.

The fastest talker in the world has landed in New Zealand, showing off her speedy skills to promote the services of a local telco.

New Yorker Fran Capo clocks 11 words a second, earning her title of fastest talker in the Guinness Book of World Records in 1986 - a crown she still holds.

She took time out between touristy activities (zorbing and black water rafting are on her to-do list) and 2degrees commitments to chat with us in the NZ Herald studio.
