She has specialised in helping people develop their language skills and confidence for many years and spent the last 10 years working around the globe.
For people who have a good command of English but find their voice isn’t what they like or have issues with being heard in public, Voice Yoga Expert Brigitte Deneck will help you ground and expand your breath and voice for optimal expression and for connecting to your authentic self. Brigitte is a voice yoga expert and qualified Pneumaphonie® practitioner.
From Ken Hettiarachi and Chris Hayes you will gain mastery of the mechanics of public speaking and the mindset of being free when on the spotlight in public, (body language, ‘style’, voice projection and speechcraft and messaging) while putting into practice powerful tools and distinctions to inspire and lead with charisma and authenticity. Our approach draws on the methodologies of ontology (exploring and creating powerful ways of being), mindfulness (being present in the here and now), voice yoga, and role-play and practice with video feedback and guidance from our expert coaches.
