Your Voice can sound Powerful and make people Look Up to you.


Course Overview:

You are a talented, self-driven and hardworking professional who is good at what you do. However, your voice is holding you back and does not project the confidence and impact you’ve desired for.

You are tired of one or more of the following voice problems:

  • Your voice gets worse when you are nervous. You feel the tightness in your throat but couldn’t do anything about it. It’s just beyond your control! What even more frustrating is that your competence gets questioned.
  • Your voice is not clear. People often ask you to repeat yourself, which frustrates you and affects your confidence.
  • Your voice is too soft and people can’t hear you. It gives people the impression that you are not confident. You try to speak loudly but embarrassingly, you often end up shouting.
  • You sound too young. Your voice does not match your age. People don’t take you seriously. You spend a lot of time proving your competence.
  • You speak too fast. People can’t catch what you say and often ask you to repeat yourself. You try to remind yourself to slow down but after a while you start speed talking again. You often feel breathless.
  • You speak with a monotone. You have great insights and creative ideas but people don’t seem to be interested when you speak. You find it difficult engaging them and leaving any impact. You believe your voice has put you in disadvantage.
  • Your have a high-pitched voice. You didn’t know until you hear yourself in the recording or a close friend tell you it’s irritating. Because of your high pitch, people misunderstand your good intention.
  • You voice is nasal. People don’t take you seriously and they doubt your capability and competence.

“The workshop has developed in me a greater confidence and appreciation for my voice. It helps me recognize better the power and potential of my voice. It has taught me that voice is not something that we should take for granted; it has introduced me to the various practical and useful techniques that can enhance my voice and the crucial foundation as Cynthia has emphasized a couple of times is to be conscious and mindful. There’s also a body-mind connection to it that comes into play. The techniques will work best when we can also tap into our heart and mind (e.g. emotions, purpose, intent, and awareness). I appreciate Cynthia’s amazing generosity and passion in sharing her knowledge. I think Cynthia also has the rare gift to see the potential in others and inspire others.”
