We teach speaking techniques and skills, but more than that, we hope to teach you something about yourself and how to achieve things you never would have imagined. That’s why our training is based on four principles:
Voice, accent and public speaking are practical skills. When you’re focused on what you’re talking about, you don’t have time to think about dozens of rules about what you should or shouldn’t be doing. The process needs to focus on building new habits, so that your changes become automatic and you can use them without thinking. So we don’t tell you how to do things, we let you practice them. Because as some wise soul once said, “What I hear, I forget. What I see, I remember. What I do, I know.”
We prefer to work directly with the words you actually use, whether that is a real speech for public speaking, the vocabulary of your workplace for accent, or a suitable piece of casting for an actor. This means the training can be put into practice in the real world, for immediate results and confidence building.
Everyone has the right to be heard. So alongside our technical work, mending voices, clarifying speech and altering accents, we seek to help each person find their truthful and authentic style, and a real confidence and pleasure in communicating.
A creative, playful atmosphere makes a safe environment for people to take risks. You can open up and step outside your comfort zone without fear of failure and when people do that, amazing changes can take place. And let’s face it: we learn more when it’s fun.
