What People Say…


University Research Scientist

“The work I did with Julie was critical in helping me to achieve my career goals, in a way that is too subtle to achieve by legislation or institutional targets. The work was great fun too!”
C.M.

M&S Money:

Workshop participants said my training was…

“…beneficial for ensuring a good vocal standard across the business.”

“Informal, friendly and informative…well worth attending.”

“Fantastic – thanks for all the great tips and info that can be taken away and used immediately.”

Sun Microsystems

“As an Account Manager for Sun Microsystems, I had experienced a variety of presentation skills training across a number of years both in the UK and the US. I had heard a lot about Julie’s work from a colleague, and decided to try a few sessions with her. Very quickly I started to learn a great deal about my voice use, stance and communication. I found this training significantly improved my confidence and delivery. Following an intensive course of 10 sessions I now continue with quarterly training to stay on top of these skills. I would strongly recommend this voice coaching to anyone who's career requires strong communication skills.”
Paul R

Banstead Baptist Church

“Julie is a committed Christian whose interest in presenting scripture and Bible truth clearly and effectively becomes obvious during the training sessions. She is well presented, affable and able to work with a wide variety of people in a group at the same time. Her presentations are stimulating without being overbearing and the exercises are much more fun than intimidating. Nevertheless, they achieve the result of encouraging people to think about how they present and give them the tools with which to do so.”
Revd Dr Paul Adams

“Julie's workshops were great - a good mix of both theory and practical tips, with plenty of helpful feedback. And I've been able to put what I learned into practice - which has meant less wear and tear on my voice.”
Rick Creighton


“It was very useful just to be told how to breathe properly, something as simple as that! And it was reassuring that the problems that I thought were unique to me, turned out to be pretty much the same problems as everyone else!”
Paul Rogerson

Teachers from Chethams School

“Well prepared, comprehensive and engaging…”

“Innovative – new viewpoints on old issues.”

“Practical and expert without being over-specialised.”

“Very useful to help protect the voice…will really consider the impact of some of my established habits on my voice’s health.”

Actors from the Northern Actors Centre

“Techniques taught with clarity”

“Came away with a really good understanding of RP”

“Julie was very approachable, took an interest in me and listened to my needs in a relaxed atmosphere.”

“Great method of teaching – lots of feedback and fun”

Liverpool Tropical School of Medicine

“Pronunciation training with Julie helped me to recognise and tackle those areas that required improvement. It has also helped to enhance my confidence to speak to large audiences as part of my work.”
A.M.

Wirral secondary school teacher

“The work has helped me to be less reactive and calmer in the classroom. It’s helped me to develop different vocal styles in order to persuade and inform the pupils – to communicate effectively with them. I now feel comfortable again - to stand in front of an assembly and speak. The work produced instant benefits – Julie didn’t baffle me with facts or make me feel like I was doing things badly. I now know how to use my voice and what to do if I ever have further problems.
I wish all teachers had voice coaching when they start out on their careers.”
G.W.

Parish Priest

“Dealing with my voice issues has been made very much easier with someone who combines professional expertise with patience and sympathetic understanding. Julie helped me regain some confidence and self belief which have stood me in good stead as I journey towards recovery.”
