Testimonials

"Having always been fairly confident in my presentation skills, I attended Sylvie’s voice coaching session to find areas of improvement. First, I must say how knowledgeable Sylvie is being a performing actor. I liked her one-on-one coaching style and how at ease I felt throughout the session.

 

I learnt that even though I might come across well in a presentation with words, my listeners were are actually looking for passion in me and a connection to the story. After a few unfamiliar exercises, Sylvie helped me improve my presentation by making it more passionate. Most of it had to do with using voice correctly.

 

I am happy to say that I used Sylvie’s tips in my entrepreneurship project presentation and got great feedback on the quality and how connected the panel felt. I would definitely recommend Sylvie’s Voice Coaching sessions and actually think they should be a mandatory element of the MBA."

"Attending the Voice session with Sylvie was very beneficial as it helped me identify the areas of improvement while addressing an audience group. Having multiple sessions like this would contribute well to my journey of becoming an effective speaker. I am looking forward to attend more sessions!"

"Before attending Sylvie's voice workshop I didn’t think such a workshop could be helpful. If you have time, then definitely give this a try. If you don’t have time, then I suggest that you make some time for it. Else you will be missing out on tangible insights aimed towards your personal and professional development.

 

It is one of those things that you will only appreciate after having experienced it for yourself. It will challenge you. It will make you uncomfortable. But in the end, it will be honest. It will be you."
