"Even for a day or a few hours? Would it affect your business if you were unable to attend a meeting, make a phone call, or talk about your services? Have you thought about the health of your voice before? If you have, maybe you didn't think there was anything could do about it? I have found most people dont give it a second thought until they have a throat infection, bad cold or laryngitis.
They are extreme cases but most of us in business would like to sound and feel confident throughout the whole day. Some people find their voice isn't good in the morning and can take a few hours to sound and feel normal, whilst others feel it gets worse the more they talk so by the end of the day it can be a struggle. Maybe you dont have specific physical vocal problems but would like to sound more confident, project without shouting or change the way you sound when you talk.
The good news is your voice can be strengthened and exercised and there are many ways in which you can avoid vocal weakness and loss.
As well as courses on Fear of public speaking, Vocal confidence and communication skills, Vocal Power Training run courses specifically on how to look after your voice.
If you would like to learn more then this is the course for you
