YOUR VOICE AND DELIVERING A DRAWING, CONVINCING, POWERFUL PRESENTATION/SPEECH
YOUR UNIQUE VOICE
According to The Voice Clinic, "at least 74% of all communication is through the speaking voice. Of that, 38% of meaning is conveyed through the way we speak. Your voice has a certain particular quality to it which is specific to you and reflects your character and personality to an extent.
EFFECTIVE, POWERFUL USE OF THE VOICE: YOUR VOICE IS UNIQUE TO YOU, USE IT TO YOUR ADVANTAGE
It is important that you polish your voice nicely without taking away its uniqueness, character and/or its characteristic.
"There is no index of character so sure as the voice" - Disraeli
"A loud voice cannot compete with a clear voice, even if it (the clear voice) is a whisper" - Barry Neil Kaufman
"Her voice was ever soft,gentle and low,an excellent thing in women" - William Shakespeare
Your voice reflects your character,mood, feelings, attitude, personality and intelligence.
YOUR VOICE: KNOW WHAT GIVES YOUR VOICE ITS UNIQUE CHARACTER
Find your voice type/characteristic
What is your voice like? Is it boring,lazy or mumbling? Is it perhaps squeaky, nasal or whining? Is it interesting, clear and warm?
The following are some of the most common voice/vocal characteristics and the perceptions/impressions they create on your audience:
*Hard and edgy: gives an 'impression' that you are irritable, & tense.
*Breathy & thin: this voice type sounds unreliable & weak to the ear - though it could just be that you are not using your resonator (your vocal cavity/the exhaust) effectively.
*Fast: You may sound inconsiderate if your voice is just running through the speech.
*Mumble: Certain racial groups/language groups tend to mumble a lot more than others; swallowing words and not really opening their mouths when they speak. They often don't come out strongly as a result. These people may give an impression that they are apathetic & slovenly. They need to learn to practice words that come out strongly - for example, words beginning with the 'p'& 'b' sound.
