Vocal Skills Workshop from Caroline King

You know how some people have a voice that resonates with you deeply and has you hanging on wanting to hear more?

Caroline guides leaders to do this naturally – without stress – so that they are consistently heard and valued more highly.

As a speaker you want to connect and command presence and impact with your audience – in any setting. Through a series of practical exercises, you will gain the ability to speak from a more natural, authentic and powerful vocal resonance that doesn’t need to be ‘switched on’ or projected with overpowering force.

In this workshop you will:

  • Discover how to use the full range of your natural, resonant voice
  • Learn how to warm up your voice effectively to make presenting and speaking easier
  • Understand why developing vocal skills is vital for effective communication

 

And all of this in the beautiful setting of Guyers House Hotel – a venue that rarely fails to get our first time visitors commenting on how lovely it is!

Also expect all of the standard PSA meeting offerings: Plenty of networking opportunties, a showcase and an abundance of opportunity so learn how to speal more and speak better!
