“It ain’t what you say, it’s the way that you say it”
Perfecting your elevator pitch or learning how to use your voice to influence & persuade.
Public Speaking is recognised as one of the scariest things a human being can do. Statistically, a large majority of us will avoid doing it if we possibly can. The problem is that every business needs to get noticed in a busy marketplace and often this involves some type of presenting. You might be networking and need to introduce yourself and your company to the room. This “Elevator Pitch” needs preparation and you will appear more confident if you understand the vocal techniques that influence and persuade others. So, contact me to learn how to Speak your way to Success.
Speech and Drama Tuition
I am a fully qualified LAMDA examiner & coach
Do you have a youngster who loves to be the centre of attention or, conversely, one who prefers to hide away in a corner?
Both of them can really benefit from exploring words and how to bring them to life.
Having run my own Drama Studio from 1972 to 2013, I have worked with all ages from 4 to 18 developing skills in:
- Verse speaking
- Public speaking
- English language & literature
I offer LAMDA examinations up to diploma level and have been a member of their examining board since 1986. A child who studies Speech and Drama will grow into a confident communicator.
Voice Protection and Projection
If you are a teacher, trainer, or coach, you come into the category of “high” voice users. This means that you use your voice frequently and often under pressure. The stress that results can damage your vocal cords. To avoid this you need to know how to power your voice safely by projecting rather than shouting. You also need to learn how to protect your voice with a warm-up and other protection techniques. As National Voice Consultant to the Amateur Swimming Association (ASA) since 1998 I have delivered numerous CPD courses nationwide.
Talk may be cheap, but your Speech should be priceless!
Transgender Voice Feminisation
Learn how to soften the tone , colour and lift the pitch of your voice.
For anyone who decides to embark on the difficult journey involved in changing gender, the voice can often seem like an insurmountable barrier to success. Some Speech Therapy may be available from a qualified Speech and Language Therapist but often this is minimal as there are insufficient therapists to go around. I have been privileged to support several clients who are going through the transition from male to female and my comprehensive knowledge of the voice has allowed me to soften the tone colour and lift the pitch sufficiently to enhance the new persona.
Vocal impact in presentations & groups
Would you like a speaker at your event who will impact on every single member of the audience? Then I’m your voice coach!
Science tells us that we make subconscious decisions about people we meet within a few seconds.
I love to present interactive sessions on Vocal Impact in Business for any company or organisation. This can be delivered to a large audience from a stage or as a practical seminar for a smaller number.
I don’t just speak for business events. You’ll find my repertoire for social events on the connected page.
What We Do
Testimonials from some of our many happy clients
I just wanted to let you know what an impact you have had on me. I feel so much better in myself because since coming to you I haven’t lost my voice once. I am also able to change the pitch of my voice without my throat getting tight. I am finding public speaking much easier too. I believe that all of this is one of the reasons I have secured a new job. From September I will be a headteacher. I am so excited for my new adventure. Thank you for being part of the journey in getting me there.
As promised, I wanted to let you know how my speech went last night.
It was a success and I was very happy with how it went. My voice wasn’t too bad although still higher in pitch than we would like, but the audience wouldn’t have picked up on that. My breathing wasn’t perfect but I got by.
Feedback included, ironically, that my vocal variety was good (although you and I know it could be better 😁). I also came across with emotion and animation and the close had impact (thanks to you!). The audience loved the content. It created inspiration and brought out some Marie Kondo fans, and as a result created great discussion.
Some constructive feedback included, too many sentences starting with ‘and’. Also, somebody suggested that I could perhaps start the speech with the story because I became more alive and it was thought this might have a bigger impact.
There were 3 speakers and there is always a vote for the best. I’m happy to say that I won 😊
Thank you for your help Priscilla, you are so inspiring and motivating and I feel like I’m getting there slowly.
See you on our next session.
