Voice Specialist – UK
As a highly experienced voice coach, Annie has more than 20 years’ experience working with business leaders to help them develop their confidence and charisma to create the impact they desire.
Annie works with individuals and groups with a specific focus on vocal delivery, particularly within presentations. This involves an analytical assessment of vocal style to provide direct feedback to improve a particular vocal or speech trait. Her particular skills enable her to recommend and develop suitable breathing and relaxation techniques specific to each individual. Through these techniques and exercises, individuals are able to develop their vocal flexibility and impact to maximise their vocal range and potential. Furthermore, through the use of video recording, clients are able to self-monitor their vocal performances, keeping a focus on the areas that will deliver the full benefit.
Annie coaches clients through speech and voice exercises to help them achieve their full potential. In a voice session she analyses vocal style, giving opportunities to practise specific exercises and techniques to develop vocal flexibility and impact. This ensures that voice is always the main consideration in her clients’ preparation. She emphasises that the voice must be produced in the most relaxed and effective way to complement and enhance the delivered message.
Annie has over 20 years of coaching experience, mainly individual 1:1 sessions. As well as working with many FTSE100 senior leaders, she has considerable experience of working with finance directors to help them deliver their City results with impact and clarity. She coaches CEOs who want to develop their confidence and vocal delivery to match their seniority and status and influence stakeholders. She also works with executives who have a global remit and need to develop a more flexible style.
