Public speaking workshops and coaching for executives and their teams.
For Executives and Senior Managers, it is almost impossible to overestimate the value of effective verbal communication on a daily basis. You are already experts in your business, and coaching can help take your presence on the corporate stage to the next level. Taking the time to learn effective communication techniques for both large audiences and smaller encounters will enhance both your personal and corporate brands.
Services for executives and senior managers include:

Hi, I'm Christine, a speaking voice expert.
I know that whether you are an actor or not, you need a voice that is truthful, authentic, and powerful. A voice that can be heard easily, is willing to stand up for itself, and that expresses your place in the world clearly and directly.
It's my purpose to help people get more connected to their voices. Because I believe that there is power in vulnerability, I believe that a voice that reveals, rather than conceals your heart and mind is a voice of strength, and I believe that strength is compelling.
Whether you are learning a new accent, prepping for a speech, or developing your acting chops, these are the principles I work by. Every session offers the opportunity to develop the clarity and authenticity of your voice, and to share that connection through the words you speak.
I began working with voice and speech over 20 years ago - earning a BFA in Acting, an MA in Voice and Speech, and specialized certification as a Designated Linklater Voice Teacher. I spent 7 years training actors on faculty in the Theatre Performance Program at Humber College, alongside coaching privately through my business. Many of my students and clients continue to do great work on the screen and stage today. Past clients and students are currently acting across all of the major stages in Toronto, and appear on hit shows such as: Grey's Anatomy, Kevin at Work, Saving Hope, and Orphan Black.
“I want to hear YOU, not your voice.”
