• Speak to Inspire

    Influence others with your voice

Your body language and voice are instrumental in determining the impression you make on the people around you. Especially in a workplace environment, it is not enough for you or your idea to be brilliant - you must illustrate and communicate your brilliance so that it may truly impact your audience.

Speak to Inspire is a one-day course, during which actor and voice professional Jesse Fox-Allen will help you to overcome your fear of public speaking. As you learn to speak with authority and precision, you will return to your workplace better able to handle challenges with confidence and impact.

Slide 1

Everyone has a unique path they must follow to master their voice. This program will introduce you to the general principles of vocal power, but will also provide you with the individual attention you need to address the distinctive challenges you face, and discover the unique strengths with which you can face them.

As you become more aware of your own vocal power, you will be better able to grasp your inner power, and develop a sense of confidence that makes your communication impactful and influential.

Slide 1

The workshop is aimed at executives and professionals who need to inspire those around them. Bring along a sample of what you would normally communicate in your work place, or something that you wish to communicate in the future.

You will work on this sample with Jesse to learn how to communicate with increased authority and influence. You need not have any prior experience in public speaking.

You are however expected to approach the program from a results-oriented standpoint and be prepared to overcome your personal obstacles.
