Learn the world's only technique for verbal communication.
The Hudson Voice Technique
There is no doubt that learning how to speak professionally will make a significant difference to your success, whatever your job.
A piano can be played by instinct, but if you want to be a concert pianist, you will need to learn a technique. In a similar way, your voice is an instrument, so by learning a technique, you will be more confident and persuasive when communicating your ideas. The Hudson Voice Technique is a systematic process that teaches you how to use your voice as a precision tool and enhances memory retention. It cannot be compared to any other communication training.
Without a technique, you have to rely on your instinct. Here's the Oxford Dictionary definition:
Instinct: The innate aspect of behaviour that is unlearned. In other words, 'guessing'. It may be an educated guess, but a guess nonetheless!
On the other hand, it describes technique as follows:
1. A set of specific rules which determine the degree of excellence.
2. The degree of skill or command of fundamentals exhibited in any performance.
The Hudson Voice Technique is a powerful structured technique that has a permanent affect, so there is no doubt that it is one of the most important tools you can learn.
The Hudson Voice Technique gives you the rules for speaking more persuasively, which in turn gives you confidence and allows your natural personality to shine. The result? Your listeners will have more confidence in you and what you say.
Listen to the difference!

I only wish I had known about the Hudson Voice Technique while I was actually working for the BBC!
"...What I know now (and practice) would have saved a lot of production time and made programmes more effective. I learned more about reading and broadcasting with you Steve, than I did in ten years at the BBC.
Only now can I count myself a professional broadcaster and voiceover.

It's not just what you say, it's how you say it that makes the difference
