"Speak Up - with a Voice Coach" with Dr Melissa Agnew
Underpinning the work will be the principles of clear speech and pleasant, unstrained vocal tone. Taming nerves, controlling voice delivery, speaking persuasively and authoritatively.
We will explore some techniques of healthy voice production and learn some exercise for clarity. We will also draw from the participants' real workplace speaking contexts.
It will be a practical workshop, so participants should come along expecting to move around (therefore wear comfortable clothes), converse and present.
