“As a Business Vocal Coach, my goal is to assist professionals in developing three interrelated aspects of communication.”
This involves exploring with clients what their voice is capable of and how to use it to maximum effect. Typically we’ll work on one or more aspects of the ‘vocal palette’ (pitch, tone, intonation, inflection, volume and speed). Our focus will depend on what the individual wants to achieve. A common goal is helping men and women develop a strong, warm, and assertive voice.
Speech work includes replacing unhelpful speech habits (removing “ums,” “ands,” etc.) with positive speaking habits; honing confident, concise language; building and flexing different communication styles; crafting and rehearsing impactful conversations, presentations, pitches and speeches; improving articulation; and, if relevant, softening a non-native English speaker’s accent.
This aspect of my work teaches clients how to manage and use their posture, breath, head, eye contact, facial expressions and hand gestures to communicate confidently and expressively. Body language can hugely affect first impressions and can play a crucial role in building trust, rapport and connection with others.
As a Business Vocal Coach it is important that I inspire confidence in instructing you to effectively understand how your voice can drastically improve your business relationships in the workplace.
