[Insights] Using Your Voice in Public Speaking with Jay Miller, Helen Langford, Kristin Linklater and Sarah Archer - 217

The Speaking Club: Mastering the Art of Public Speaking

Your voice is one of the most neglected, yet most important tools you have as a public speaker.  Your ability to be heard clearly, to last out the talk energetically, and to connect powerfully with the emotions of your audience are all reliant on your voice. That’s why for the first of the insights episodes, I have pulled together highlights from some of the best voice artists and teachers to help you ensure that you are looking after and fully utilising this incredible instrument.  First up, joining me on the show is Jay Miller. Jay has spent the last 20 years training speakers, actors and business people how to develop a great voice, as well as overcome anxiety around public speaking. He is now one of Canada’s finest voice and speech coaches, appearing across the Canadian media, and his work has had a profound effect, not only on building compelling and engaging voices, but also on the lives of those people that work with him.  Helen Langford is a voice actor, who absolutely loves the sound of her own voice … and so do lots of others. She works for many corporate clients, including household names, and every day she tells stories, explains tricky concepts, promotes brilliant ideas and gets to be somebody new! Kristin Linklater has sadly passed away since recording the original interview, which makes what she shares even more precious. She had a long and distinguished career as a teacher and actor in Europe and America, working with some of the most prestigious theatre companies and dramatic institutions in the world. She also wrote one of the seminal books on voice technique based on hearing ‘the person, not the voice Enjoy! What you’ll discover:  Jay: The distinction between projection and speaking louder.  Why you should treat your voice like a plant you love.  A tip you can use to sound better tomorrow and develop vocal stamina. Sarah: How you can influence the emotional state of your audience  Things that can affect the pitch of your voice as a public speaker  Tips for getting more pitch variation Helen: How to avoid the droning voice. Why your voice is never fully dressed without a smile  The difference between pitch and tone Simple vocal warm up exercises you can do at the side of the stage.  Kristin: The connection between mind, body and voice.   Examples of bad voice habits and how they impact the quality of our performance?  How trying to control our voice reduces our vocal stamina. Why public speakers must ‘feel’ the words and not hide behind a presentational tone.

Beyond Busy Podcast: Telling Your Story with Sarah Archer - 204

The Speaking Club: Mastering the Art of Public Speaking

This week, the tables have turned and I'm the one answering questions on Graham Allcott’s Beyond Busy podcast.  I was chuffed to be a guest on this great show and to share a bit more about my life and experiences relating to speaking, performance, storytelling and my time in the corporate world.  I talk about the time I was failing in my corporate job and the valuable life lesson I learned. How I manage my expectations around success for my comedy shows and plays. The big mistake people make around selling a change, idea, products and services and what’s important for a great elevator pitch.  Plus I’m sharing my views on authenticity, overcoming fear, storytelling, and much more. Enjoy! What you’ll learn: What it’s like taking shows to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival What happened when I only had one person in the audience. How I deal with the nerves and feelings of vulnerability that can arise when I’m performing solo shows or my own plays. Why you need to detach your identity from your work. A process for looking and managing the thoughts that come up for us when we put ourselves and our ideas out there. Where the fear of public speaking comes from. What the ‘anxiety gap’ is and how we can manage it. Things you can do to increase your confidence around public speaking. What makes a good elevator pitch. The four questions people want answered before they will say ‘yes’. How to make mundane things exciting for people. The big mistake people make with their message. Why stories are so powerful. Why I thought authenticity was important enough to do a TEDx talk on. What you need to do when something unexpected happens when you’re speaking. What success means to me. Why it’s important to compartmentalize work and life.
