  • Voice and Body Coaching - all places taken, but WAITING LIST available!!
  • by Julie Stearns

    Integral to voice and body training is the central idea that physical and vocal dynamics are connected to the speaker's motivation and to the importance of the information being communicated. The trainer has a professional theatre background, which is a unique benefit for the participants to help identify the verbal challenges of each speaker, giving attention to breath, articulation, intonation, volume, modulation and tempo. Training is given to improve non-verbal aspects such as gesture, positioning, distance, eye contact and relationship with media.
    Trainer input will provide the opportunity to gain new insights in effective communication and learn how to present yourself, in particular as a women scientist, more effectively and to make the best impression and strongest impact.

    up to 20 participants
