In this course we are going to train how to develop your voice in a way that makes your message reach, that will make you be heard.
As someone who has taught voice for 23 years, who had to also speak in public and use my speaking voice in order to engage, I am aware of how daunting it can sometimes be to use your speaking voice in public either for a presentation or as a teacher. In both cases we want to engage.
There are also situations where we are in a group conversation and some people would struggle to understand and feel when they can come into the conversation and create some space for themselves to be listened at.
These are the most important points we are going to address in this course, on the one hand its about making a bigger impression in our audience or simply around ourselves, using better our tone of voice and improving our storytelling skills.
These skills can actually serve you in every area of your life, because getting your message through and having an audience can happen in a lot of situations, and the ability of being able to be an influence and making an impact will open doors for you.
It could be useful for you to Voice Love work with me if you feel nervous when making presentations or fear making speeches, maybe you try to avoid certain situations in order to avoid having to speak in public at all, or you feel uncomfortable making announcements or you don´t find the “gap” where to jump in to speak in a group conversation, or you have to communicate often in online conferences and need to find your way to make yourself comfortable in that.
A lot of this has to do not just with you voice per se, but with your body language and your communication style. Studies show that actually only a 7% of your communication is actually verbal. The tone of your voice makes up to a 38% of your communication, and your body language makes up to a 55% of it (Albert Mehrabian’s extensive research on body language and non verbal communication), tone of voice and body language constitute a 93% of your communication!
The tone of your voice is a non verbal skill and its a very important aspect of your communication, and we are going to tackle it with a holistic approach, looking at both physical and emotional aspects.
