Nothing has more power to move people, than the human voice.
The way you use your voice is your greatest gift. And if you haven't actively developed this skill, you are missing out on something special.
Most of us will meet nearly 80 000 people in our lives.
Imagine possessing the power to have a strong influence on how they react to you.
“They'll judge your sincerity and credibility by your voice.”
No matter how big your audience, the one thing they seek is a connection with you.
Your voice conveys whether you're safe and trustworthy. Whether you are to be believed. Or not.
To your listeners, your voice embodies who you are and what you believe.
In a noisy world, it’s harder than ever to touch people with what you’re saying.
They may hear you, but they’ll believe what your voice and your body language make them feel.
It’s not what you say, it’s the way that you say it. That’s what gets results.
When you master your voice, you change how you feel about yourself, and how others feel about you.
How you’re perceived is the difference between getting your message across, closing the sale, wowing the audience, getting what you want – or not.
Brilliant speakers, teachers and leaders live on in the heart and mind, thanks to this skill of evoking emotion and connection.

Such a nice group of people to work with. I had an immediate sense of acceptance from the group which was important for me because I lack confidence generally. The trainer, Jo, was very clear and precise in her teachings and we all had great belief in her methods. I was happy with my progress so thank you very much.Priti Noor
This was one of the best courses I have ever attended. I was touched and inspired by the other attendees whose desire to learn and hunger for participation was spectacular. I enjoyed the atmosphere, sense of purpose and camaraderie. I had a great time. Thank you.Sarah Jones
