Many Reasons Why
One of the issues that frequently occur in a career is often with the voice. People with high ability who are making an excellent contribution to the overall work, somehow don’t make the career progress their talents deserve.
I found one of the most important areas where people need help to improve their impact is the voice. No matter how able and hard-working you are in many work situations, you are not going to do well if you can’t make a positive impression when you speak.
Sometimes it’s a question of projection – if you can’t be heard easily, your contributions will be lost.
Sometimes it is speaking so quickly that people find it hard to grasp what you say.
Sometimes in meetings, you find yourself speaking too slowly so that people cut in and interrupt to hurry you along.
Sometimes your voice fails to emphasise the key points, or trails away at the end of sentences.
- Sometimes you are so nervous you stumble over the presentation you have worked so hard to prepare and even lose your voice altogether!
My Voice Coach sessions will help to give you confidence, vocal clarity and stamina in making professional presentations, speaking at meetings and one to one interviews, as well as social situations where you may be invited to speak.
The sessions will be on a 1-2-1 basis with me via Skype, which means you can learn in the privacy of your own home. Your sessions will be tailored to your specific needs. They will be practical, informative and at the same time relaxing and fun.
1-2-1 Voice Coaching
My 1-2-1 course by Skype begins initially with a complimentary phone call so you can decide if it is right for you and I can assess your needs. We can then arrange a suitable time for your first half hour session on Skype. After the first session, I will email the written exercises for you to practise at home. Around a week later, you can book for another half hour session in which we will consolidate what you have learned so far. I will then progress your coaching and you will be sent additional exercises to do at home. We will have a phone call a week later to discuss your progress. You can then book more sessions if you wish. Often people find that two/three sessions are enough, with the possibility of coming back later to work on a specific speech or presentation.
