Over the last 20 years and as an author, speaker, and CEO of The Voice Advisory Group, Lucy Cornell has personally trained 1000s of executives in 18 countries and spoken at over 300 events, to inspire people to change their world with impactful, influential and empowered speaking.
She knows know the single most neglected opportunity in business is in the voice of its people. No matter what technical skills people have or training they have received, none of that matters if they can’t express themselves and be heard.
Lucy’s central premise is that your voice is designed to express your power. But by the time you become a career professional and are expected to be a voice of influence, this natural, expressivity has been civilised and contracted.
Having a voice of influence is your birthright. You just need the tools to revive your natural voice. As a result of working with our techniques, our clients are more confident, more persuasive and feel more empowered. They can assert their position more effectively and are more successful in their career trajectory.
Lucy is one of 250 Linklater trained voice teachers in the world with has extensive academic and practical experience training with voice tutors from Royal Shakespeare Company (UK) and as an actor and teacher at Shakespeare and Company (USA). She also holds a Masters of Applied Science in Voice Research (U.Sydney) and a Bachelor of Arts/Education (UNSW).
Lucy has been a specialist speaker for Young President’s Organization (YPO) events globally for the past ten years in Istanbul, Barcelona, Miami, Pakistan, Dubai, Oman, South East Asia, Sri Lanka, Australia, and New Zealand. YPO members are all CEOs of high net-worth businesses whose expectation of education is high.

She has taught in 11 jurisdictions and works annually with the Australian Bar Association.
ucy also takes her work with business leaders off-road as the Founder of The Echo Project, which supports silenced communities; women, domestic violence survivors and the world of human trafficking.
As a foil, Lucy helps business executives shed light on what a privilege it is to have a voice in the world and begs the question: You have the right to speak. What are you doing with it?
