Last week I was in the privileged position of running a Leadership Workshop with some of the amazing individuals working for the incredible charity, Send a Cow. I had been put in touch with the business through a contact, Paul Stuart, who is now the Chief Operating Officer there and at the time knew little about what they did and became intrigued to learn more.
As the fifth series of “The Voice” began on the BBC last week, we thought a focus on the impact of the voice might be an interesting subject to consider for our blog this week. We consulted with our very own voice expert, Jessica Claire to gather her views on this subject and here’s what she has to say:
I spent the whole of my twenties with a guy who sounded like he had a Murray Mint stuck in his throat. He played professional rugby and had the body of Adonis and a face to match. So I cast aside the off-putting nature of his John Major-esuqe voice for a stonkingly long time. But it always niggled me. That voice. It sounded strained and uncertain. And didn’t match his confident, masculine exterior.
