VOCAL COACH

To communicate your ideas or presentations clearly is the difference between being effective in any workplace and or getting the job or not.  The importance of communicating effectively in any situation cannot be stressed enough.

Having trained with Stewart Pearce, world renowned voice coach at Webber Douglas Academy, my approach is based on very solid voice training with over 30 years experience in Film/ TV and Theatre and Musical theatre playing a lead on the West end.   I have also voiced 100s of of Top Brand campaigns, many of which have won awards at an international and national level, as well as numerous documetaries, animations, corporate reads, so I am able to teach voice having applied it successfully to various mediums. 

We look at breathing, resonance, projection and generally building your confidence when you are called to speak in public or simply over the phone.

My approach is very much to work with the individuals needs and abilities. To find your voice which will then authentically help you communicate with confidence.

I also ran my own company for voice artists and actors for 8 years and was involved with training artists for voice in studio.  I have led many workshops for corporate events In the UK and in SA, training groups or individuals in various professions.

The key is clarity, confidence and authenticity. Through continued exercise and looking at your specific needs I can, and have transformed people with anxiety issues related to public speaking and or problems even speaking clearly, into confident and charismatic speakers.
