VOICE TRAINING/ PRESENTATIONS

Your speaking voice is the most important asset you have if you wish to make a good first impression. When we have to ‘present’ ourselves, we prepare ourselves well: the content of what we want to say, PowerPoint slides, clothes… everything is taken into account, except how we use our voice. While, actually, our voice is the most direct means of communication that we have, and the one thing that will determine whether people listen to us and whether we get our message across.
I give training to teachers who regularly do whole-class teaching, to people applying for a new job, to employers who are in the middle of a change process, to politicians and to anyone who otherwise needs to get an important message across using their voice.
In the voice training we work on, among others: vocal and speaking techniques, breathing techniques, posture, theatre techniques, role patterns and presentation techniques. See info.
