Description

Slow down your speech

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS WILL BE A SMALL, PRACTICAL GROUP SESSION AND PARTICIPANTS WILL BE REQUIRED TO HAVE MICROPHONES AND VIDEOS TURNED ON.

Delivering a clear impactful message relies on you taking your listener on a journey; signposting exactly which parts of your message you want them to take away and helping them navigate where you are in that journey by using pitch, pace and tempo. Many people find that, as a result of being nervous when speaking in public, their speech becomes rushed and lacks vocal variety. When we speak too quickly, we tend to ‘trip over’ our words and leave no time for our listener to digest the content of what we’re saying.

Whether you want to address an audience of one or one thousand, this introductory workshop will give you practical and transferable exercises enabling you to live your words you speak them and override any habitual tendencies to rush what you’re saying or use filler/hesitation sounds like ‘um’ or ‘err’.

Many people who use their voice professionally find themselves speaking almost constantly throughout their day. Yet most people have had no formal training in how to look after their voice and keep it functioning optimally.

Do you sometimes get to the end of the day and notice your voice feels tired or hoarse? Or perhaps you experienced losing your voice altogether and not known why it happened or how to prevent it from happening again.

Tension is the enemy of your sound; putting the muscles of your voice and speech under unnecessary pressure. These patterns can gradually become part of your habitual vocal usage.

This City Academy workshop is essential for anyone who uses their voice professionally and wants to ensure they are looking after it; speak freely and clearly without strain.

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

Each workshop focuses on a particular skill for business professionals and will offer quick-fire communication techniques to suit the group. We provide the tools to embed these practical techniques immediately. The sessions will be interactive in nature. As the sessions are focused on communication skills, participants will be required to switch on their microphone and camera. This way the tutor will be able to give personalised feedback in a constructive and positive framework.
