COMMUNICATION TOOLS THAT HIT THE SPOT

Learn powerful effective communication techniques to help you use your body, voice and words to be your best consistently.

Our Methodology

Our elocution methodology incorporates techniques from a wide range of disciplines and brings it together in a creative, simple and intuitive way.
We use established ideas from neuroscience and what we know about brain plasticity to help you uptake new sounds quickly. By ‘rewiring’ your brain you can get to a place where great, clear communication is automatic
Your brain absorbs information best when you are relaxed and alert which is why we use games; they make it fun and increase your learning. Win win.
Our tools help you to be in control of how you feel, with fear busting and confidence building techniques that change the way you behave and appear
Our tools help you to be in control of how you feel, with fear busting and confidence building techniques that change the way you behave and appear
Our focus is always on you, not a sound or habit and we pull from all our tools to support you to be the best communicator you can be.

Our way of teaching Elocution

This programme focusses on exactly what you need to remove any blocks in your communication. From sounds that don’t come out quite right to habits that don’t do you justice, your coach will hone in on the issues and give you targeted tools to improve. They will also pull from the wider tools set of effective communication in order to support you to be the best communicator you can be.
START WITH AN ELOCUTION TASTER

This one-hour session is designed so that we get to know which sounds and habits need addressing and can give you a roadmap of where you are and what needs work. You will see some improvements right away in the session and get a sense of our unique approach so you can decide if it’s right for you.

ONE TO ONE TAILORED COACHING
