Women in the Boardroom

A woman with a voice is by definition a strong woman. But the search to find that voice can be remarkably difficult.”

~ Melinda Gates

Speak to be heard

women-buisnessThe female voice in business often lacks impact or fails to be heard. All too often women say their voice is mistaken for that of a young girl. I call it the ‘Minnie Mouse effect’. A voice like this is often disconnected from the body and misrepresents otherwise powerful women as girlish and not to be taken seriously.

Other typical problems with women’s voice include the quiet voice, the voice with a rising inflection that turns every statement into a question and a lack of confidence that can often result in women failing to take up their space and place of power in meetings or presentation situations.

Taking a holistic approach we work on the physical, mental and vocal aspects of developing a rich powerful voice. We tackle breath, body, presence, the importance of articulation, pitch, pace and volume. Make friends with your true authentic voice and discover how powerful and persuasive you can be when you express your thoughts with confidence, clarity and conviction.
