Conquer your Fear

Is the fear of public speaking costing you your career?

The most important skills recruiters and employers look for in a candidate were determined by a large survey of employers to be...number 1... “oral communication” number 4...“presentation skills”. Another survey of employees found that a disproportionate number would prefer to let someone else give a presentation, even if it meant losing them respect and opportunities at work. How does having to present affect you? To check out the full article from the BBC for more insights, go to our facebook page.

Voice Coaching....The Musical

Sep 5, 2016 by Contributor - Voice Articles

Our Chief Trainer believes she got her start as a voice coach when she was 9 years old. Being tall, and attending a girls boarding school in England, she was cast as Professor Henry Higgins in Pygmalion (the play upon which My Fair Lady is  based). Like Julie Andrews, she has been speaking beautifully ever since. Go see the show in town now. It's great.
