Vocal Charisma – Transform Your Speaking Voice

How to Speak with Resonance, Clarity, & Confidence

If there is one ability we possess that has a powerful impact on others, that can influence, comfort, educate, and inspire, that should reflect who we truly are and how we express ourselves to the world, it’s our SPEAKING VOICE. It’s a beautiful thing when our voice reflects our true self. 

But what if it doesn’t? What if there’s a mismatch…an incongruence between what you sound like and what you envision your true vocal image to be? 

Is this you?

  • “People say I sound monotone and lackluster.”
  • “It seems like people are put off by the way I speak.”
  • “I’ve been told I sound angry.”
  • “Everyone can guess where I’m from as soon as I start speaking.”
  • “My voice has no power, and it tires easily.”
  • “I cringe when someone plays a recording of me speaking.”
  • “My voice (or accent or speech pattern) keeps me from getting ahead in my professional or social life.”

Whether you’re a manager or a stay-at-home mom, a CEO or a civil servant, a teacher or TV personality, a single person on the dating scene, an attorney pleading a case in court, or a doctor or therapist advising patients all day, there’s one thing that every one of us has in common: we need a great speaking voice.  A voice with charisma and presence, the power to persuade, command, or instruct…a voice that resonates confidence and authority, and doesn’t give out on you.  You deserve a beautiful, dynamic speaking voice that you can depend upon for every communication situation, whether you’re reading to your grandchildren, going on your first interview,  or making a speech that changes the world!

A note to you movers and shakers out there: studies have shown that the tone of your voice is much more significant than the content of your presentation, in terms of the impact on your listening audience. You’ve got to develop that charismatic vocal tone and dynamic delivery, or your speech will fall flat.  You need that magical ability to convey emotion and connect with others on a profound level.  

In our Vocal Charisma course, you’ll learn to achieve that commanding compelling star-quality speaking voice. Of course, we custom tailor the instruction to meet your individual needs. The learning objectives include (but are not limited to):

  • Tone: achieving clear, resonant, powerful vocal tone at the appropriate pitch 
  • Expressiveness: utilizing effective intonation, speaking rhythm/flow/rate, facial expression, eye contact, and gesture to enhance your speaking ability and convey meaning and emotion
  • Breath Support: developing optimal breath control to support your vocal tone
  • Articulation: producing crisp accurate non-accented speech sounds (including reducing a regional or foreign accent)
  • Language: choosing optimal vocabulary, grammar, etc. to get your message across
  • Bonus Extras: learn how to combat nervousness, reduce muscle tension that can interfere with voice, and even learn how to project your voice over noise or distance effortlessly without vocal strain. And learn the best ways to care for your voice, so it stays healthy forever!

Your voice and speech will be professionally evaluated to determine which skills are in need of training. We make sure that YOU take an active role in formulating goals that are most meaningful to you in your journey toward vocal excellence. 

Your Vocal Charisma training will be administered personally by celebrity voice trainer and speech/voice therapist Karen Sussman, MA, CCC-SLP.  Karen has taken her 40-plus years of experience as a speech and voice coach, voice therapist, and singer/actor to create a program that helps you develop a speaking voice that’s melodious, mesmerizing, and mellifluous.  In short, she helps you achieve your Choice Voice!  

We are pleased to offer our Vocal Charisma course in-person at our Hicksville center, and via convenient interactive online platforms, so you can transform your speaking voice from the comfort and convenience of your home or office. Discounted prepaid packages are available; speak to our Voice Program Coordinator at 516-433-1822 for more information and to schedule your personalized evaluation and training program.
