Sound as Confident as Your Words

Date: Monday, 4th November
Time: 19:00 – 20:00

Most copywriters love words. They take time to make them witty, influential, memorable or just clear and concise.

But what happens when they say those words out loud? Does the voice sound as powerful as the words it conveys? Capable of carrying more emotion than words alone, the human voice is a formidable communication tool. But anxiety can have a negative effect on the voice, knocking our confidence and diminishing the strength of our words.

In this session, Lorraine uses her background in audiology, performance arts and voice coaching to explain why our voices sound as they do and what we can do to make the most of them.

She provides tips, techniques and exercises to help improve diction, projection and pace – and manage the nerves that cause us to ‘um and err’, get tongue tied or go completely blank under pressure.
