How Do You Like Your SpeechDo you feel like your speech could improve? Would you like to have a better voice? A better tone? A better rate of speech? Would you like to reduce your accent? Are you preparing for an interview for a public speaking engagement and you need tip and tricks on how to make that successful? I would love to help you!
Who am I?
First of all, let me introduce myself, my name is Kelly Archibald and I have helped hundreds of clients meet their speech goals. I have worked with pageant winners, actors, singers, students and professionals.
Why am I able to help?
Due to my background, I am able to be empathetic to clients. I had a vocal performance scholarship and I studied speech pathology. Those two educational experiences gave me a great deal of knowledge about the voice and about getting in front of an audience. I understand the nervousness that we all feel when we have to put ourselves out there. I know what has worked for me and my clients and I love getting to know what will help each individual with whom I work.
Areas We Target
- Body Language
- Accent Reduction
- Rate of Speaking
One of the most important tools of communicating is body language. Since this is so important, we offer a video, Body Language. We are able to give clients tweaks that will help create rapport with their audience.
Another area we assist clients with is in helping to create a pleasant voice. Voices that are nasal, strident or raspy can be distracting and pleasant for the listener.
While you may think it can't be improved, the tone of a speaker's voice can be improved with work.
Also important in speaking is having intelligible speech. We don't ever want speakers to lose their uniqueness or their culture, but want them to be effective communicators. We can help with this by reducing some of the prosody and sounds that interfere with intelligibility.
In addition to these areas, rate of speech is an area that we can help clients improve upon.
Finally, the area of preparation is always one that clients reach out for help with.
Because effective communication is imperative in today's society, it sometimes is necessary to ask for coaching. We love helping people meet their goals. As a result, we would love to help you. In addition to online coaching, we offer a video course, Ace Your Interview.
Most importantly, you are unique and important. Your experience and personality help you contribute. Consequently, you speak volumes.
I would love to keep in touch....you can find me on social media at Kelly Archibald.
