The way we speak is often underrated, yet we know that over seventy percent of our communication is more that just the words. Observation of leaders and successful speakers reveal the power of skilful speech. This ability may be inherent but can also be developed. Ingrid’s breadth and depth of expertise means that she can help with all aspects of spoken communication.

Voice and Speech Training - focussing on posture, breathing, tone and diction to enhance the speaking voice for any occasion.
Confidence - Exploring what you really can do with your own voice so you are self-assured whatever the situation. Ingrid encourages you to step outside your comfort zone in a safe and supportive environment.
