Is This Really How You Really Talk?

Sue Shellenbarger, the creator and writer of the Wall Street Journal‘s “Work & Family” column, wrote a comprehensive article here on how the quality of a person’s voice can impact his or her career. Our solution is a skill called “Resonance,” which helps anyone improve the quality of his or her voice by simply widening the throat, mouth, and nasal sinuses when speaking. You can find a full discussion about resonance along with a set of simple exercises in a chapter called, “How to Develop a Rich, Resonant Voice,” in my new book Winning Strategies for Power Presentations.

“There isn’t an executive, salesman, banker, politician, or religious leader on the planet who can’t improve their presentation skills. Jerry Weissman is the guru to whom they turn to
learn to deliver their message better.”
