Want to become a voice actor or public speaker but just can’t afford the training?
Is your voice sabotaging your first impression by being weak, croaky or nasal?
Are people asking you to slow down or speak up when you talk?
All of these factors are the results of poor speech habits which ‘Speak and Be Heard’ aims to remove from your vocal routine!
‘Speak and Be Heard’ contains a collection of 101 voice and breathing exercises suitable for beginner speakers to accomplished Toastmasters – all aimed at naturally improving your voice.
Written by voice actor and audiobook narrator Richard Di Britannia, the many exercises aim to help you speak with confidence and curate a warm, rich, natural voice that people enjoy listening to.
Conventional wisdom tells us that those who talk to themselves regularly are crazy. The truth is exactly the opposite. Those who make an intentional habit of talking to themselves have clearer thoughts and better communication skills than the rest of us.
In this book, the result of hundreds of client case studies, Richard explores why those who habitually talk to themselves conquer their emotions, discover their true opinions, and drastically increase their own influence, while those who persist in ‘silent thinking’ rarely realise their full potential.
With his technique of ‘thought articulation’ through extemporaneous speech, he teaches his readers, be they shy professionals or seasoned executives, to unleash their own wit, charm and charisma long before they ever need take the stage or wield the microphone.
By the time they get there, they will find their voice stronger and their thoughts larger, for “small talk is called so, because it results in small ideas.”
