Description

Over the course of 8 online tutorials, you will learn to harness your voice using breath, body language and vocal techniques honed by instructor Nicky Davin’s years of diverse experience.

Think of vocal delivery as the scaffolding that holds your intention. Vocal training leads to a freedom that will allow you to have an effortless confidence in your voice, no matter what life throws at you. You wouldn’t run a marathon without training, so why would you give a speech without working on your voice? The great thing is, the more you practice at home, the easier it will feel out there. Before long, it will become second nature and you won’t have to worry anymore.

The lessons will work through ten different areas of support, strengthening your physical technique, as well as introducing tips and exercises to help you on an emotional level. You’ll learn how to fully integrate your voice and put your personality across, letting go of nervous baggage.

You’ll work through the course with a poem, ‘The Voice’, coming back to it at various points to add the layers of the techniques you’ve learnt. Recording your reading of it at the beginning and after the final lesson and comparing the positive improvement.

Each session includes a warm up and warm down, and is designed to be fun and supportive. Public speaking isn’t so bad after all, you’ll see!

FAQs - Harness Your Voice and Become a Confident Speaker

Why is public speaking important?

We are social animals, no way around it. No matter how brilliant you are at your job, how expert in your field, how brilliant a friend and mentor – the way in which you present yourself in public will always leave the greatest impression. By investing in your voice, you are investing in yourself, and making sure that your hard work doesn’t go to waste.

Who can benefit from a voice training course?

Anyone! Even the more confident among us can go to pieces under public pressure. A vocal training course is an invaluable foundation. The techniques and exercises you learn will carry you throughout your life, and help you in a multitude of situations, from workplace presentations to wedding speeches.

What is the best way to practice public speaking in order to see results?

The best way to practice public speaking, is to practice. On your own; to the cat; to the committee. The stronger your foundation, the harder it will be to knock you off balance.

I am not a native English speaker; is this course suitable for me?

Absolutely. This course isn’t as much about technical language as technical expression. You might even want to try some of the exercises in your native language too and see how it feels different. We encourage you to experiment and play.
