When you have been in business for a long time (as I have) it can be very easy to jog along happily doing the same-old, same-old and believing that as you’ve already done it all there can’t be anything more to learn. How wrong can you be!
A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of attending a full day course in London on the subject of articulation. I have been helping people of all ages and in all walks of life to improve the precision of their speech for a very long time so you might wonder what I felt I could learn? Well, the chance to work with a top world authority on the subject was too good to miss. Meribeth Dayme Ph.D is an American who has built a reputation as an expert on performance and human anatomy and in recent years relocated to the UK for studies in healing and communication.
So, what did she say?
This is quite a technical subject but I hope this will make you think a bit more about how much effort you put into your speaking. Use those muscles or they will become weaker and less effective.
Well, I hope to manage my usual monthly blog in early August but I will be working in Sri Lanka by then so it just depends on 21st century communication.
Don’t forget that TALK may be CHEAP but your SPEECH should be PRICELESS!
