Talk to your Animals
They love you when you speak to them
You knew it all along right.! Now the latest scientific research published in the Journal of Current Biology, proves that your pets respond to your tone of voice.Parts of their brain lights up in response to certain sounds emitted when you are experiencing certain emotions.This is what makes communication between humans and dogs (in particular) so efficient. Time to speak to the animals!
Lovely lady brings lots of Luck!

What speaking up can do for the World
Take a lesson in bravery from Malala
Just over a year ago this brave young girl was shot in the head for speaking up about the rights of girls to have an education. She faced the fear that most of us have deep down when speaking in public. The fear that someone won't like us. Not only did she come through the ordeal, but she has continued to speak up for something she believes in. Despite the fact that people are still out to silence her. Make's your own fear look pretty small doesn't it. Join us in supporting The Malala Fund at www.malalafund.org

VO guy rocks!
A lady who is always Newsworthy !
A woman of style and substance
Female newsreaders have been taking the world by storm for some years now,and one of our dearest is Sandra Sully. We met Sandra when she was blazing the trail for women on Australian TV news. She has added her dulcet tones to documentaries, news stores and speaking events across the nation, and I'm sure we'll be hearing a lot more from her in the years to come. Hat's off to you madam!
Voiceover Star Series ....Alistair Lee
Alistair turns a blind eye into big bucks
We've taught a great many of Australia's leading voiceover stars to read commercials,narrate documentaries,and deliver the goods by using their voice. However, one guy stands out...for the simple reason he's blind! Nothing stops Al. He just brailles the script and lets that chocolaty voice of his woo you. Come and do a voiceover course with us. It's practical, professional training... and heaps of fun!
Using her voice for good on all stages
The Actress Speaks
We love our Cate. She is the perfect example of how a trained voice should sound. Natural, clear, resonant and full of personality. And it can make you a star too. We enjoyed seeing Cate at work again and wish her well on all her vocal adventures.

When you are an Inspiration , you'll be asked to speak.
Inspirational horsewoman shows blind kids how to communicate.
We met champion dressage equestrienne Sue-Ellen Lovett many years ago when she was asked to tell her inspirational story on the speaking circuit. You could not find a lovelier woman. Blindness has never stopped her, nor her trusty dog and steed, from becoming the top of their game. Learning to communicate her message of courage and endurance was a natural next step . Paralympian Sue-Ellen especially likes to inspire children to pursue their dreams regardless of their impairment, lately taking children on a Blind Touch tour with the beautiful horses of Cavalia.
Weather is improving!
Weather and News woman Sally shines.
Another one of our favourite people from TV land is Sally Bowrey. With her sharp, sassy and intelligent take on the weather, you can be sure Sally's voice will take you through the highs and lows. Having a finite amount of time to reveal the intricacies of the sun and rain, Sally uses vocal variety and clear articulation to get her message through. So good is Sal that she's a hot newsreader too.
