Pronunciation, Projection, Accent Reduction, Tone

Personalized Program

 Achieve more by eliminating hurdles caused by a dis-engaged voice or awkward speaking patterns.

Speaking skills are learned skill.  Learning how to strengthen and enhance your voice in a way that conveys a confident, genuine, and vibrant speaker, who is knowledgeable on the topic, is one of the most empowering and powerful tools of influence available to you at any time or place.   

Non-verbal signals such as the tone quality of your voice and delivery of your message, both verbal and through body language can be enhanced through private voice training.  A high pitch/squeaky voice, an artificial/insincere delivery, speaking too fast, feeling anxiety while speaking or experiencing stage fright will have a negative impact on the listener, regardless of how much preparation went in to the content.  You do not need to be mis-understood because of vocal fry, a soft/lifeless sound, a monotone voice, or a heavy foreign accent that causes you to fumble over your words. 

Improving Your Speaking Skills is as Easy as 1-2-3:

Step 1 - Voice Training:

  • Use Your Voice Properly: Maintain a vibrant speaking voice and delivery throughout your entire presentation and during one-on-one conversations.  Put information into action as I guide you through a series of useful drills to speak with a voice that creates greater interest for the listener.
  • Voice Strengthening: Engage your entire voice and correct problems such as hoarseness, a nasal sounding voice, a weak-shy sounding voice, or a tight strained voice.  
  • Preparation and Maintenance: Prepare yourself for speaking by following simple and easy to do guidelines for day-to-day care.

 

Step 2 - Presentation Delivery:

  • Present your best self through relaxed but confident body language, facial expressions, microphone techniques, and convey genuine enthusiasm to your audience. Present yourself as an authority in your field, with credibility. Build trust with your audience and co-workers. 

 

Step 3 – Stress-Anxiety Management / Stage Fright:

  • Relaxation: Learn stress management techniques.  Stop triggers that start the fight-or-flight response.  What to do when you lose your momentum during a presentation causing your voice and breathing to become tense.
  • Energizing: Learn how to re-energize yourself in ways that help keep you calm and focused.
