The Make Your Mark with Susan Room®
I will work with you on the four key pillars of communication: mindset, body language, speech and voice.
This is because how you think (mindset) affects how you look (body language), what you say (speech) and how you say it (voice).
Mindset: the voice leaks information. Whatever you’re feeling be it tired, hungry, stressed, anxious, irritated or something else, people will hear those emotions in your voice. That’s why my work starts with ‘mind work’, notably turning down the negative voice in your head and dialling up the confident, authentic voice within.
Body language: posture and breathing habits affect your voice which is why improving them is an essential part of voice coaching. They also convey how you feel about yourself and others, as do your facial expressions and hand gestures. I can help you use all aspects of body language to communicate more effectively.
Voice: your voice is a remarkable instrument. Together, we explore what it can do and how to use it to maximum effect. Whether we work on one vocal element - pitch, tone, intonation, volume, resonance, and speed – or several, our focus will depend on what you want to achieve. A common goal is helping women develop a strong, warm, assertive voice.
Speech: speech coaching includes replacing unhelpful habits with helpful new ones; honing confident, concise language; learning and flexing different communication styles; crafting and rehearsing impactful conversations, presentations, pitches and speeches; improving articulation; and, if relevant, softening a non-native English accent.
