Could this be you?

Some women unintentionally hurt their leadership persona through poor speech and voice habits such as:

  • Talking too fast
  • Upspeak behavior
  • Voicing that is too thin, soft, or high in pitch
  • Simply not crushing it
  • Not seen as a leader

Poor communication and voice habits can cause women to appear ineffective, hurt leadership positioning, and not advance in the workplace.

“Working with Liz has helped me to feel confident that I am going to remember what I am presenting. She gave me tips on how to keep track of my information in my mind. She has helped me to slow down and speak in a lower and more powerful pitch. She is clearly an expert in her field. Her knowledge, expertise and energy are infectious. I own a business and this training made a big difference.”

- Joanne

“I am a vet with a lot of experience and education. What I didn’t have was the ability to speak with confidence. I would speak with a lot of up-tones and that made me sound uncertain. After working with Liz I am aware of how I come across to others. I sounded “cringeworthy” when I would listen to myself on recordings. My speech sounded immature. After working with Liz all of that has gone away. I sound confident. She is very good at what she does. She is able to hear what is off and very politely bring your attention to it. She will help you to sound great. I am going to have her train my staff. She is fun with great energy. She is an excellent coach.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do we offer public speaking and business communication skills training specific to women?

They deserve it. With more women rising in the workplace and political roles and becoming executives and business owners, there is a need for women to position themselves successfully. Women have unique features such as having a naturally thinner and higher vocal pitch placement compared to men. Voice placement for richer and pure vocal tones is a big part of our training plus other unique features specific to communication, leadership positioning, and body language.


Regardless if you work in business or media, or want to land that interview, we will analyze your speech and voice skills and immediately offer strategies that will improve your voice quality and speaking styles, as well as your confidence and leadership status. We offer different classes that will meet your needs.

What is the number one worst speech habit for women?

Upspeak, which sounds young, immature, and not confident. Upspeak is when speech ends on a higher note typically during the last word or few words of a sentence. Upspeak is distracting, interferes with clear messaging, and does not sound smart when compared to women who do not have that habit. For women who have this habit, we shape it out early in our speech and voice classes. Upspeak behavior cannot exist in communication when wanting to be perceived as smart and a leader.

How is talking too fast harmful to a women’s leadership positioning?

Fast speech is hard to understand and can become exhausting for listeners. Women lose their power when they speak too fast because the listener is forced to process fast speech instead of simply listening and getting the message comfortably. Fast speech also causes speech to be in a higher voice placement instead of a lower one. Lower vocal tones are more associated with leadership. Also, fast speech causes errors in pronunciation. Good communication should be fluid and easy to process for the listener.

Why do women have thinner and softer voices compared to men?

Physiology. As a result, many women have thinner vocal folds compared to men. Also, speech, voice, and personality are heavily correlated. It is easy for women to place their voices in a higher, thinner, and nasal placement. Voices that are too thin, high, or have a lot of nasality are not as commanding when compared to women who speak with strong and pure vocal tones.

Is leadership training included in the classes?

Of course! Communication through leadership is defined by those who speak with interesting melody patterns with sharp articulation and from a stronger and more powerful voice placement. These skills are addressed first in our programs. In addition, many signals about leadership are sent based on how voice and speech patterns are used. We will make sure you are sending your intended signals that radiate strength and confidence.
