Stand Up. Be Heard

A 3-Act Series for Professional Women

Act I, Owning Your Voice, was a huge success!
Reserve your spot for ACT II and III.

Act I – Owning Your Voice: June 23rd 9:00am-3:00pm – Completed
Act II – Activating Your Message: July 21 9:00am-3:00pm
Act III – Powerfully Present: August 25th 9:00am-3:00pm

Are you being evaluated on your voice more than your message? Are you critiqued on your delivery more than your content? Do you really know the message that you are sending to your audience?

Our speaking voice conveys a message; it may be confidence, commitment, passion, assuredness, insecurity, doubt, warmth, openness, or fixed mindedness. Voice is essential to communicating your message and personal brand, whether on the phone, one-on-one, or in a presentation.

Women today are evaluated intensely on their delivery. From Forbes magazine, NPR, Time magazine and more, the media is debating and discussing women’s voices. We can’t change the culture that we live in overnight, but we can empower ourselves with an awareness of our voice that when applied strategically, delivers the message we’re intending.

With the series you will:

  • Increase your awareness of and connection to your voice.
  • Learn ways in which your voice impacts your work and ways in which you have more control over it than you realize.
  • Activate your voice as a tool for business.
  • Connect more effectively with your clients and co-workers and land your message with greater assurance.
  • Receive individual coaching in small group breakout sessions to practicing communication scenarios.
  • Gain skills and awareness to enhance your leadership and confidence in business and in life.

Whether you are an experienced speaker or a novice, gain greater vocal variation, power, and authenticity to increase the impact of your communication in this unique workshop focusing specifically on the voice, applying training techniques of actors and directors.

Act I: Owning your Voice – COMPLETED

June 23rd – 9:00am-3:00pm @ ARTiculate Studios – 2727 Bryant St. STE 600, Denver CO  80211

  • Would you like to activate your ability to persuade and captivate an audience?
  • Capture and hold the attention of a room?
  • Be perceived as confident, competent and effective?
  • Are you interested  in how professional performers train their voice?

Whether you’re speaking to a group—or trying to be heard by your employer, employees, or colleagues—being clear and authentic are the keys to your success. This is true of live conversations as well as virtual sessions via phone or webinar.

What sets successful leaders apart from the pack is utilizing your own true and authentic voice; speaking with the authority that comes with using your voice efficiently and effectively.

Many of us have adopted manners of speaking that disconnect us from our truth.

Poor breath use and voice placement can make your voice sound disconnected and cloaked. On a more subtle level, it can make you come across as closed off, inauthentic, and untrustworthy. Clearly, that’s not your intention.
