  • Simple Health Care Tips

    Voice Health care Tips

    Your voice needs your help

    It's pretty obvious really. If you didn't have a body, you couldn't speak. Your voice relies on the correct use of your breath, posture and movement to get your words out there!

  • Are you sounding good today?


    Your Voice on Social 

    If you are you active on Tik Tok, Reels,You Tube or any of the other channels,you've probably heard some pretty crappy sound. People muttering, volume too soft or too loud, fuzzy production quality and loads of boring voices. Look. We don't want this to be you! We've got some great short courses on how to sound brilliant and influential. Check them out here


  • Do you say weird things?


    Why do you say "Um" and "Ahh"

    Have you found yourself stuck for words and only "Um"keeps coming out? There are a couple of reasons for it. Firstly, you are stopping someone else from interrrupting you by claiming the airspace with a sound. It gives you time to think of what you are going to say next. And secondly,you are possibly unsure of your content or feeling a little hesitant and doubtful that you can get your message across. Did you know that different languages come complete with their own set of "holding" sounds? "Um"..."Ahh"..."Errr"..."Ayye". Weird eh!


  • Come join in the fun

We've had floods and wars and disease and worries...yet the world keeps turning and the sun is still in the sky. Thanks to all of you, our dear clients, staff and friends for keeping your commitments and sense of humour. Let's make the next financial year rock!


  • God save the Queen!


    Time to Celebrate a great lady.

    One lady who has had to do a lot of talking in her life deserves our respect as she celebrates her Platinum Jubilee. HRH Queen Elizabeth has a particular way of talking that mostly remains even and unemotional. Her accent is upper class and clipped and her diction is crisp and clear. She knows how to use a mic and keeps a spare in her handbag (just kidding) Anyhow, we love her for being there and knowing how to use her presence and status to make us pay attention. Long may she reign.

  • Happy Everyone day!

    Womens-day 2022

    It's called Happy International Women's day..

    It's the day that's set aside to celebrate women. Have you noticed that there is no one little day set aside to celebrate men? Why are we giving women a single day to be celebrated. How ridiculous. Don't get me wrong... we love men. Just come on...this has got to change. 


  • Tiger, tiger burning bright!


    Happy Year of the Tiger....time to growl and prowl.

    face ai

    New zoom challenge 

    As if we don't have enough to contend with on our zoom calls! Some businesses are now employing AI to track your body language to see whether you're nodding off or engaged doing something else.The rationale is to get more feedback on how the speaker is coming across to their audience, so they can improve their performance and build better relationships.


  • Get ready to present


    The end of lockdowns...the New You

    Time to get ready to flex your presenting muscles as the Covid beast is nearly under vaccination control.

  • Getting Married?


    The time is right

    At long last...time for romance! We've been helping several happy couples and their best men to get ready for their speeches on their big day. Not to mention the nervous Dad who decided he wanted some help too! We wish everyone a very Happy Wedding day and a long and exciting life. Cop that Covid!!  Cheers!


  • How come my accent has changed?

    irish woman

    Woman wakes up with new accent

    Imagine going to sleep after having throat surgery only to wake up with a new accent! A Brisbane dentist's voice changed from Aussi to Irish for twelve days. Her friends thought it was a laugh but to her it was a major concern. As accents are partially formed by changes in the movement of the mouth muscles, we think this might be partially to blame. She did get her Aussi accent back in the end. 


  • Easter is here again!

    Pink Easter

    The Bunny is back

    We wish you all a Happy Easter and hope you have a safe holiday and lots of chocolates. Spread the love to all our fellow friends doing it tough and know that we are here for you. 


  • Time to connect


    Networking that works

    Networking and meeting people seems pretty daunting at times. Not to mention how weird it can feel if you are doing it all online. If you need a little support to craft a better message come on in and we can help you with it.We also highly recommend joining a supportive group like HerBusiness Network,Toastmasters and many others to mingle with supportive and interesting people.


  • Sending some love !


    The Sweet sound of Love

    Time for love and romance. Time for dulcet tones and sweet phrases. Time for gentle breathing and soft sentiments. Time to rest your professional voice and just relax. Enjoy your day.

  • Merry Christmas and Happy New Year


    We've made it through 2020

     Well done. We're nearly through with 2020. What new adventures are in store for 2021 I wonder. 

    Take care of yourself and others and we'll keep on learning together.


  • Influencers use Vocal Branding


    Making the Right impression

     We've had some interesting calls lately from several celebrity Influencers who (unfortunately) seem to hate the sound of their voice. Your voice is part of your 'Brand', so it's important you get to know it and love it if you want to come across as warm and authentic. Learning how to breathe properly, adjust your posture,vary your pitch and articulate clearly is a vital part of making the right impression. A little time spent learning now will greatly improve your confidence. 

  • Learning and Succeeding


    Teachers and Students have success

    We have been thrilled with the success of both the teachers and students we have been helping reach their best during the pandemic. Eveyone has had to quickly get up to speed with a new set of virtual skills, yet at the same time remember how to keep their speaking authentic and professional.Not easy, as there are so many distractions. However the teachers at Mosman Prep School and a student client of ours from Sydney Grammar have made it to top of the class. Well done all!

  • Improve your Memory with your Voice


    Reading aloud makes a big impression

    You don't have to be a kid to read aloud. Research has discovered that adults who read aloud experience many benefits. Their memory and retention improves, they can understand complex texts more easily and they can strengthen emotional bonds with both the material and other adults. So why not try reading aloud next time you get a book. Maybe you'll get so good at it that you can become an Audiobook Narrator! 


  • Everyone's online!

    Presenting online

    Give impressive presentations

    We have just masterfully produced some great courses for you . They are all designed to help you teach, train, coach and speak....online. We are all using different videoconferencing software like Zoom, Skype, Teams, Google Meet, WEbex and more...so how do you use them properly and sound good? We can show you how to come across at your best and to optimise your picture and sound quality. We know it's a bit of a stretch for some people...however we make it easy for you to become comfortable with the new reality on online presenting. Go to https://presentingonline.com to find out more


  • Fun way to deal with your frustrations!


    Come to your balcony and express your feelings!

    It's the year of the Virus and we are all doing our best to keep calm and carry on. However, some people at a UK prison have come up with a novel way of helping folk vent their frustrations without having to resort to the usual swear words. Enter Shakespeare! The master playwright had his characters use some mightily funny phrases when they were hot under the collar! How about...."churlish-flap-mouthed-foot-licker" or "spleeny-rough-hewn-pigeon egg". To find out more about some choice phrases you can hurl down from your balcony without hurting anyone's feelings...google the Shakespeare Insult Kit.There are several of them...and they are all hilarious!


  • Glare in your glasses

    cat glasses

    I can't see you for the glare!

    Here is another thing we noticed when videoconferencing this month. Glaring glasses. This occurs when you have a light placed too close, directly in front of you. The glasses pick up the glare of the reflected light. If you have tinted glasses this makes them look bright blue! What you need to do is place your key light slightly to the side of you. To be really professional you will light yourself from 3 directions. Many of the Influencers we teach use a circular light. Try sitting a little further back from it if you wear glasses or your pupils will contain a reflection of the circle light. Not necessarily the effect you are after! 


  • Building trust and rapport on Zoom,Teams,Skype

    Eye Contact

    The Eyes have it

    You've had a few months to get good at video conferencing, however we are seeing some easily-fixed problems happening all the time. We're referring to "eye contact" . If you want to build trust and rapport you need to look someone in the eyes directly. Too many of you are looking down or to the side, which is disconcerting to the viewer. Try raising your computer up on a stand or books so that your webcam is either directly at eye level or a little higher. Also...you can move the other persons image on the screen to directly below your webcam. This allows you to be looking directly at them. Try it!


  • We're Covid Safe

    Covid Safe

    Keeping our clients safe

    We have been conducting training virtually for several months now and our clients have said it was a resounding success. We congratulate you all on being able to adapt to having your lessons online. It was rather fun actually! However, we do want to get back to more in-person training as soon as we can, so we have undergone a rigourous safety and health audit to make us covid safe. We have put into place a Covid-19 safety plan and have been registered as a NSW Covid Safe Business. We ask you to join with us as we implement our plan to keep you safe. See you soon.

  • Something a bit different


    Using sound to put out fires

    You'd be amazed what sound can do. An engineering firm in Australia has invented a sonic fire extinguisher that uses super-low frequencies to create a vacuum that starves a fire of oxygen and puts it out. We could have done with this invention at the end of last year during the bushfires. Thinking of bushfires...we haven't forgotten our dear clients who got caught up in them. We also salute the Fireys who worked so hard to keep us safe. 

    What a year it's been for everyone ! Sending you all our love. 

  • To mask or not to mask...that is the question.

    mask boy

    How to wear a mask and still talk clearly

    It's the question on everyone's lips...but you can't see their lips! How can I wear a mask and communicate clearly at the same time? Depending on the type of mask you're wearing, you'll find a few things that will create a challenge for you when speaking. Firstly, it's weird trying to breathe behind a mask, secondly, as your mouth is hidden it's obviously impossible for people "read your lips".People who are deaf and people who are new to a language rely heavily on lip reading to understand meaning. We suggest, if you can, speak with your eyes and eyebrows and over-enunciate what you are trying to say. Do your best. Hopefully this won't last for too long. 

  • New tricks to keep going.

    Zoom Call Woman

    The Covid Month...so far!

    We've all had to jump online and learn a lot of new tricks. We've had to become teachers to our kids, videoconferencing stars at work and generally keep the show on the road.  It feels unrelenting. Here are a few voice suggestions to keep you sane. 1.Keep breathing. 2.Adjust your computer height so you are looking at it at eye level, thus avoiding neck strain and letting your voice flow out smoothly. 3. Test and adjust your mic volume so you don't need to speak too loudly. 4. Sip warm lemon and honey water intermittently. 5. Rest....a lot more.


  • Let's get Online!

  • Let's hear it for the Metro!


    Announcer Train-ing

    We've been busy designing and presenting a great course for the brand new Sydney Metro. Their busy controllers and staff needed some professional guidance on how to deliver excellent messages, so we showed them how to do it! Now all they need is for the equipment they announce through to be tweeked a little bit further, so that their well structured messages can be more easily heard in those sleek metro trains and beautiful new stations. 


  • What a start to 2020!


    2020 came in with a challenge...Fire.

    It's the year that started with mega-challenge for our clients and staff in Australia. Fire, smoke, loss of life....human,flora and fauna. It also started with incredible bravery from our Firefighters and is continuing on, day in day out. Now however....as is the nature of this magical land... regrowth is appearing. We hope that you and your loved ones and staff are safe. Let's all gently regrow together. Life goes on.

  • Recording for Good


    Impressive Lillian Leigh

    We have just had the priviledge of working with Lillian on her personal presenting and recording style.

    Lillian has just recorded an appeal for The Lung Foundation Australia who are shining a light on Lung Cancer. Lillian tells of the prejudice that many people with lung cancer are faced with. There is so much more to her story. A brave and beautiful woman, being of service to others. You make us proud.

  • It's all in the Motion

    Motion capture

    The Motion Capture Advantage

    Jul 18, 2019 by Contributor - Voice Articles

    We had a very interesting assignment this month helping on a motion capture project. With motion capture you need to make your face move so that all the dots line up for the many cameras that are simultaniously filming you. Speakers need to remember to move their mouths and relax. Pretty stressful in an odd environment that's for sure. Our reassuring coach helped put the candidate at ease and give a great natural performance.


  • Value of Voice

    Domain names

    What's in a Name

    Not only does YOUR voice have value...so does the domain name Voice.com. It sold for ....wait for it....$30 million! Holy cow! It is now the highest value domain name in the world.

  • The Neutral Voice

    Ai Face

    To Sir(Siri)with love.

    Move over Siri or should we say move over Sir! A virtual voice has been created to do away with the gender steryotype of the virtual assistant.The new voice of "Q" was created to sound like neither a man nor woman. Interesting. However we think all voices have merit and can be used in many different ways. AI...Are we going too far?


  • New Suite of Websites

  • Time to Party! OMG!


    The festive season is here already.

    How many parties are you going to this season? And how many parties are you avoiding because you're shy, don't know what to say or just give up in noisy, crowded environments? If this is you...come and learn how to rev up your speaking style, mobilise your conversation starters and safely project your voice so people can hear you.


  • What do you do when you're up against the elements?

    lisa blair

    Conquering fear.

    We've had the pleasure of meeting Lisa Blair, sailor extraordinaire, who's off on yet another adventure, this time, circumnavigating Australia. (She's already conquered Antarctica!) She has a great story to tell about being out at sea alone when her mast broke...read her upcoming book "Demasted" to find out how she handled the fear...and look out for her speaking tour where she tackles everyone's fear of public speaking with the same courage.Be inspired.


  • Making you "voice-ready" to podcast


    The Journey to a Podcast.

    Many people want to voice their own podcast and take sounding good seriously. One such person is Journalist Nina Young, who wrote and recorded her very personal story of her emotional journey into uncovering the truth about her own father in "My father, the Murderer" a six part true crime story. Be sure to tune in on Foxtel.


  • Yes....Introverts can make great presenters


    Not Everyone Needs to be Loud in a Crowd

    Time for reflection. If you are a natural introvert, or maybe feel you have become more introverted as you've got older, you are going to find taking a course in presenting skills will help your confidence immeasurably. In her book  Quiet:The power of Introverts in a world that can't stop talking, Susan Cain gives some great insights into how an introvert can thrive by facing their fear and learning public speaking. A good read.


  • Interesting folk

    team discussion

    We've been meeting some great people this month

    We've been back and forth between Sydney and Melbourne this month training the Unions on how to sound good on the phone;executives on how to reduce their accent and improve their possibilities for promotion; entrepreneurs in how to pitch their start up and writers in how to podcast. Big month and lots of fun too. 

  • The Four Fears


    What's scaring You?

    In their book, Play to Win! Choosing Growth Over Fear in Work and Life, Hersch and Larry Wilson outline psychologist Maxie Maultsby’s concept of the Four Fatal Fears.(1) The fear of failure (2) The fear of being wrong (3) The fear of rejection (4) The fear of facing uncomfortable emotions. All of these fears get activated when you are about to make a presentation or have an interview. However, you can learn some excellent ways to deal with them. We'll show you how.


  • One-Way Conversations


    Enjoy talking to yourself?

    Ever seen someone talking to themself and thought... Whoh! Talking to yourself used to be considered the first sign of madness. However, a recent study by Nottingham Trent University in the UK has discovered we are considerably more successful at problem solving if we talk out loud rather than puzzle it out in our head. Apparently it focuses your attention (not to mention the curious attention of onlookers!)


  • Different Pitches-different Perceptions


    Hearing is believing....or is it?

    The reason people are hearing different words is because the sound bite is being played at different pitches, or heard through speakers or headphones that are calibrated to different pitches. Could this be why men and women sometimes think they hear what the other is saying only to be told they have heard it wrong? Maybe the pitch of our voice is changing the perception of the message!


  • Are you hearing things?


    What do you hear?

    Have you had fun with this hearing test yet? It just hit the net and is sending people crazy! Why? Because people who hear this sound are utterly convinced that they are hearing YANNY....no LAUREL!...No YANNY!! ...no....LAUREL!!!!!. We'll give you the secret as to why this is happening in our next post. Stay tuned. 


  • Talking to your Dog

    Dog Talk

    Loving your Best Friend

    Researchers at the Univerity of York have run multiple tests on dogs and it has been proven that they love being talked to in a "soppy tone" . No surprise here! They like hearing speech directed at them such as " you are a good doggy" "good boy/girl" etc especially if it is in sing-songly voice. We think it is good practice for you too...as it helps you relax your throat and vary the pitch of your voice. A reward for both of you! 


  • Stiff Upper Lip

    Stiff Upper Lip

    How to hold your head high

    You might be suprised to know that the saying "stiff upper lip" that is used to commonly refer to a particular English vocal trait, is in fact a US invention. It was an early phrase referring to a poem by a US women's rights advocate. An early #metoo reference perhaps. The Brits liked the power behind the sentiment. Emotional Resilience in face of a challenge. Try holding your top lip stiffly and you'll get the feel for the mouth position required to produce an English Upper Class accent. It's fun to do and timely...with Royal Wedding fever in the air!


  • Order your clothes using your voice

    smart speaker

    Don't mumble your measurements!

    Smart shoppers have taken to ordering their clothes by speaking to their Artificially Intelligent Speaker Systems. We've heard that the order can come out 3 sizes too big if you mumble your instructions! See...you even need to have a good voice to talk to a THING! ...OMG!


  • Animals Talk in Accents...really?


    Bats do dialects...no kidding!

    According to the latest discoveries by scientists, bats along with birds and dolphins have regional accents! Apparently, when bats are moved away from their mother colony and put into a new one, they listen to the sounds of other bats around them and pick up the exact same squeals. Humans often do the same (particularly if we're having fun!)...it's a way to fit in with the tribe.


  • The New Year kicks off to a good start.


    The Voice Business Kicks off !

    We've had a busy start to the year. It seems lots of people want to sound good this year. And we are happy to help. We are running trainings in Brisbane, Canberra and Melbourne in February and March and then have a full program in all capital cities during the rest of the year. Book in early via the website or phone to secure your place. We look forward to meeting you and your team.


  • 2018! Let's make it great!


    Adventures waiting for you in the New Year 2018 

    What will this exciting year bring for you? What topics will you need to present? What will you be speaking about in business? to your family? to your friends? Hot topics this year will be cryptocurrency, artificial intelligence, virtual reality, organics, new styles in leadership, engaging relationships and cooperative teamwork. Come and upgrade your virtual presenting skills and learn how to keep the important "human"touch and authenticity in all you do. 


  • Are you speaking to "things"?


    Talking to your new best friends-AI

    Everywhere you turn you'll find yourself either talking or listening to "things'. Chatting to Siri or Cortana: commanding Alexa or Google to find things for you or turn on the lights. Bet you didn't know that they have a hard time helping you if they can't clearly hear your words. To spruce up your pronunciation...be sure to move your lips!


  • Interstate Trainings


    The Voice Business Visits our Clients

    We've had another busy month. Training C-level execs in Perth; running voiceover and speech trainings in Brisbane and Adelaide ; teaching presentation skills in Melbourne and accent reduction workshops in Sydney. Wow. And there's lots more to come as people are gearing up for the Christmas cocktail season. Come on in and learn to make a great conversational impression with your voice! We've got a great course for that.


  • Hang on...just adjusting...my voice.


    Putting it on a bit thick

    Researchers have found that two out of five people own up to using a fake voice to make a better impression on their caller. However most people can't keep it up for long.Women do it more than men but are often unaware they are doing it. The report also says that older people put on a "phone voice" less than younger people. So we don't just "dress to impress"...we "talk to impress" too.

  • Oops! Cover your mouth.


    The Secret Life of Yawning

    Most of us try to stifle a yawn because we think it's rude. However, I bet you didn't know that human behaviourists have discovered that a yawn is an evolutionary process indicating empathy.Before language,if people around you yawned when you did, it indicated that you were part of the same group. Try it out...it's contagious with people who like you the most! And, by the way, it's a great way to release tension from your jaw. Great for speaking! 

  • Why we change our voice when we are impressed by someone.


    Talking about High Status

    Did you know that we change our voice when we talk to people who we think are higher status than us? Well, we do, and it's often not obvious to us. Recent research has pointed out that women tend to raise the pitch of their voice and men tend to speak more softly.People who consider themselves to be high status however, tend to talk in a measured way. Come and learn how to talk like the VIP you are...and make a great impression...naturally.


  • Tour de force

  • Doing our bit for Australia

  • Right Royal Problem

    Flag Bubbles

    Royal Mumble confounds students

    Apparently thousands of German school children have failed their final English exam because they couldn't understand dear Prince Harry's royal mumble in their audio comprehension test. Guess we should pass on a few of our handy hints to him! He's not alone in being a mumbler. Fortunately it is a fixable trait. Hope the students have better luck next time :)


  • Audible Content

    text voice

    Audible Content-Challenge for Voice Artists

    When every object you see talks to you and at you life gets loud. Voice artists provide the soundtrack to your life. Or they used to. Now their profession is being severely challenged by technology. It's possible to sample and synthesize voices more realistically these days. Better watch out...your voice might be copied and used for the next interactive refrigerator. Not cool.


  • Conquer your Fear


    Is the fear of public speaking costing you your career?

    The most important skills recruiters and employers look for in a candidate were determined by a large survey of employers to be...number 1... “oral communication” number 4...“presentation skills”. Another survey of employees found that a disproportionate number would prefer to let someone else give a presentation, even if it meant losing them respect and opportunities at work. How does having to present affect you? To check out the full article from the BBC for more insights, go to our facebook page.

  • The Ladies have lots to say

Like Julie Andrews, she has been speaking beautifully ever since. Go see the show in town now. It's great.
