VOICE TRAINING ~ Your Dynamic Voice

As soon as we open our mouths to speak, we are judged. Instant assumptions are made about our background, our intelligence, our class, our power. In business communication today, it is essential to be able to delegate, to instruct and inform, to inspire and persuade.

Have you ever said:

I am much more interesting than I sound or
When I stand up to speak, my voice lets me down.

Your voice can fail you in many ways, all of which affects your presence and power.

  ~ If your voice hurts or tires easily

  ~  if you keep having to repeat yourself

  ~  if you speak so rapidly that you stumble over words

  ~  if your voice annoys listeners and you are easily ignored

then it’s time to give us a call.

How can ACCENTS help you?

Step 1

Our specialised facilitators are trained to assess an individual’s
voice and determine which elements of your voice need work.  Your voice is digitally recorded and feedback is provided right away.

Step 2

We create a specific programme to address your particular areas of weakness.  The number of sessions is dependent on the complexity of the speech area.  We e-mail this proposal to your with an estimate of how many sessions would be required.

step 3

Training commences with our highly specialised facilitators.  We also provide specific sound bites for vowel and consonant practice so that clients can continue to practice after the session, wherever and whenever they like.

step 4

Accents provides follow-up sessions for clients to ensure that the benefits gained are retained.

South Africa, in particular, is filled with many different accents – we might speak with a Zulu, Afrikaans, Coloured, Indian accent – to name but a few. At Accents, we do not aim to change your accent, our main focus is on improving clarity. This might mean that we will focus on accent reduction or neutralization, but we would not recommend eliminating a person’s accent.  Click here to see our page on accent reduction.
