Discover how to realise the full potential of your voice

As an educated, purposeful and capable professional, you have a sense of your tremendous potential, yet you would like to feel more confident.
You’ve been developing yourself and your business for years: reading, studying, and doing the work.
Outwardly, you are doing great, and you’re getting booked, and feedback is good,
But you are feeling uncertain about how your voice sounds, how you come across to others, or you’re just really anxious when presenting.

Explore, experiment, empower

In this fabulous one day workshop you will have the opportunity to explore your voice and discover that it can do far more that you realise. You voice has more strength and more range than you knew. Through experiments and exercises we will show you how to get the most out of your voice, and give you tips and tricks that work well with the voice that you have and the way that nature made you. We are all different, it’s not about being born with perfect vocal cords, it’s about knowing how to make the most out of the body, voice and mind that is yours.

Plus practise presenting and personal coaching

We have only ten spots available for this workshop. This is so that you get the opportunity to present to everyone else. You can choose whatever you wish to work on, whether it’s reading a poem unseen, practicing a welcome, singing a hymn or other song, maybe leading a song, or perhaps speaking unscripted. Whatever it is, you can try it and we will be here to answer your questions and give feedback in a supportive setting. This is a perfect space to work on your voice and overcome nerves.

Or learn what you need now without taking the spotlight

For those who don’t yet feel ready to present to the Masterclass group, there is so much to learn from watching others present and receive feedback. It gives the chance to reflect on personal challenges, and to reflect on style. You can take away all of the experience and learning of the day, and come back and repeat the masterclass as soon as you feel ready to put yourself in the spotlight.
