It's an annoying, bad habit. I'm talking about "speechy voice." Today we're going to talk about why you do it and how you can stop doing it.
DON'T MISS THESE HIGHLIGHTS:
Well, hey, everybody, Sari de la Motte here, and it's been a while since we had a Sound Check podcast, I apologize for that. I have been busy writing my book which is now off to the publisher by the time you hear this, and will be coming out later this year. It is for trial attorneys, although it applies to a variety of different speakers. So, if you want to learn how to move any kind of hostile audience to one that wants to be there, you might want to pick up a copy when it comes out. It's called From Hostage to Hero. I'll be letting you know, of course, in the podcast when it is available and ready, but very exciting to have that finally done.
Well, in today's podcast we're going to talk about something that drives me nuts. So, of course, I have to talk to you about this thing that drives me nuts so that you will hopefully stop doing it, and that is speechy voice. Oh my god, you guys, I hate speechy voice, and yet so many speakers use speechy voice.
Now, if you don't know what I'm talking about, I'm talking about the type of talking that people do when delivering presentations and they talk like this for the entire time that you are listening to them. That's what speechy voice is. And you know what, it's just annoying and I don't really want to make you feel bad about it if you do it, what I want you to do is to stop doing it. So, in today's podcast we're going to talk, about why you do it and how you can stop doing it.
Sari de la Motte is the host of "Sound Check" a podcast for speakers looking for tips on how to increase their "executive presence" and ability to confidently connect with their audience.
