How to Use Your Voice Effectively

As quiet leaders, we generally tend listen more than we speak, and when speak we are soft spoken and gentle. And that is a great quality to embrace and build on. We use our voice for a substantial part of our working day but we may take it for granted that it will do what we want it to do. We can still be soft spoken and speak with greater authority over the telephone, get our ideas across in a meeting, persuade our colleagues and clients along a certain line or command and captivate an audience. For any of these and other situations, our voice plays a key role in making a powerful impact on your listeners.

That’s why voice coach Alida Annicchiarico will be joining our Meetup this month as a guest speaker presenting on how we can use our voices more effectively, not just in business but in all areas of our lives.

What to expect:

• A safe, non-judgmental and quiet space to connect with like-minded people

• 6:30pm - 7:00pm: Networking and drinks

• 7:00pm - 8:00pm: How to use your voice effectively by our guest speaker

• 8:00pm - 8:15pm: Q&A

• 8:15pm - 8:45pm: Connect and mingle  

P.S. if you are interested in working on your voice with Alida in front of the group, bring along an elevator pitch, short blurb or monolog to use during the training demo.
