Adapting to Online

We hope that you are all doing well and keeping safe during these unprecedented times.

We all have to do our absolute best to comply with the Presidential directive to stop the spread of COVID-19, so during this period of social distancing and self-isolation, all our face-to-face training is obviously on hold until after the lock-down, when we will then re-access the situation.

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank all those of you who are part of our essential services and who are going about their daily work routines in our best interests, to care for us all and keep us safe. 

Stay healthy, stay safe and stay at home!

Business adapts to online – new short course “VoiceWorks Online Readiness”

Even when the days of lock-down are over, many of us may still be choosing to work remotely. In face-to-face situations we need to be aware of how we communicate, whether we are in a boardroom meeting, on a podium, in the office or at a dinner party.

How YOU sound and present yourself is what makes us at VoiceWorks tick. We like to inspire you to use your best voice to create a positive, vibrant and effective impression.

We have created a new short course to get you ready for online meetings. We will assist you in preparing your voice and how you communicate over a video call. Our “VoiceWorks Online Readiness course is 3 x 1 hour individual sessions, conducted via Skype or Zoom with one of our skilled facilitators. Specialised voice coaching is combined with improving your visual online presence to create a positive impact.  

Reduced fees for our most popular courses now online

The following individual courses can be conducted online via Skype or Zoom:  

  • Executive VoiceWorks
  • Accent Neutralisation
  • VoiceWorks for Radio Presenter

Learn to up-skill yourself during this time of social distancing and take advantage of the power of online learning.
