READ MORE ABOUT THE MODULES
MODULE 1 | WHY VOICE?
Get serious about why your voice matters.
Learn from some of the world’s master speakers about the innate relationship between your literal voice and your positional voice – how your voice asserts your power and position.
You’ll rate your voice over 3 benchmarking exercises which we will compare at the end of the course, and define your goals for the course. See your classmates respond to this exercise, as they grapple with their current vocal challenges, and their vision of how their voices will grow.
MODULE 2 | THE 4 GOLDEN KEYS
The 4 golden keys to vocal influence revealed.
Discover how your voice works as Lucy walks you through the basic anatomy of voice production.
Investigate how socialization developed your habitual, ‘civilized’ voice as you grew up and learned to manage your interactions with the world. Consider what habits you might be carrying that you no longer need.
Watch how our Baby Harriet’s impulses translate spontaneously onto her voice, and learn how this was yours as an infant and is still possible as an adult.
MODULE 3 | GOLDEN KEY NO 1: ARRIVE
Arrive is the key to being fully present.
If you tend to get ahead of yourself, or are so anxious that you’re ‘beside yourself’ when speaking, this is for you.
Learn to bring yourself into alignment, to find the ‘flow’ state that establishes your focused presence and draws the audience in. Explore how this can change the body’s anxiety response, and allow you to be heard under pressure.
MODULE 4 | ARRIVE IN ACTION
Experience the feeling of presence and gravitas.
Put Arrive into practice, transferring the theory covered in the last module to a sensory experience in the body.
Investigate subtle habitual tensions, of which you may not have been aware.
See your classmates apply this to a spoken interaction, and you’ll also have a chance to respond to direct questions from a classmate yourself.
MODULE 5 | GOLDEN KEY NO 2: BREATHE
Breath gives you agility and real control.
Breath for speaking is completely distinct from disciplines that require breath control – such as yoga, pilates, swimming, and most singing styles.
Observe how effortlessly natural breath happens, and learn how this can translate into effortless communication.
So if you’re a speed demon, or don’t like to use pauses, this is for you. If you have a fear of people cutting in, tend to run out of breath, forget what you are saying or believe you’re not taken seriously, pay close attention to Breathe.
MODULE 6 | BREATHE IN ACTION
Buy time and carve out space using breath.
Experience how instantaneously your breath can respond to your thoughts and translate your critical messages directly onto your voice without any roadblocks.
Learn how your breath moves you, and not the other way around!
Investigate what it is that might get in the way of your free breath, and how to address it. Discover how you can bring your audience with you, encouraging them to relax and listen.
MODULE 7 | GOLDEN KEY NO 3: VIBRATE
How much resonance and range do you have and what is that saying about you?
Do you believe you sound too nasal? Monotonous? Overbearing? Or do you struggle to get heard, and see yourself as softly spoken and tentative?
Vibrate will change your focus, helping you to understand resonance and range so you can expand into the wider resonating potential of your voice, and encouraging more presence, confidence, strength and energy.
MODULE 8 | VIBRATE IN ACTION
Learn how to have people literally resonating with your ideas.
Investigate the feeling of sound in your body, and learn how to release what’s holding it back. Discover the power to literally move people when your intention meets sound vibrations.
Join your class mates ‘on the floor’ as they work very practically on their voice. Watch what happens when they expand into their resonance and range and try it for yourself.
MODULE 9 | GOLDEN KEY NO 4: SPEAK
Words are sonic experiences for your audience.
Tune in to the needs of your audience and learn to use words with intention and impact.
This is especially for you if you find yourself speaking on autopilot, or if you want to sound compelling and engage the audience more.
MODULE 10 | SPEAK IN ACTION
Share your vision viscerally in the way you use words.
Bring your audience along with you as you combine the 4 Golden Keys in the act of speaking. Deep dive into your words and bring them alive in your imagination so that the audience can share your vision.
Watch your class mates bring the 4 golden keys together into a boardroom scenario and how they land with impact, authenticity and power.
