If someone whispered in your ear to inform you about a piece of spinach on your teeth or a smudged lip stick, would you ignore them or would you take their advice very seriously. So how come then when you receive advice regarding the tone of your voice, the clarity of your diction, your pronunciation, your voice timbre and projection, do you shrug it off as nonsense.
If you are one of the few women who respond positively to advice regarding the quality of their communication style, then you have secured your place among the growing number of movers and shakers that have realized that the way you use your voice is as important as how you style your hair, choose your designer clothes or project your body image.

Self improvement is high on the list of must-have these days. Improving ones verbal communication skills and confidence in speaking should also be a high priority.
Communication takes place in all workplaces. We should not wait for a communication breakdown to occur before requesting the services of experts such as ourselves to help alleviate the problem.
A business woman’s communication skills, now more than ever, must be as robust as the communication medium she uses. The audience has become desensitized to the ''Wow Effect'' of technology. The message and its delivery must mobilize the people, with reliance on the technology as the medium.
Individuals who believe they're being held back in the workplace, or in their careers by the manner in which they communicate can benefit from our services.
