About Voiceworks

VOICEWORKS is a small, highly specialised consultancy which can help you polish and improve your spoken communication skills.

Having worked for a number of years as both a successful actor and professional broadcast journalist, I developed a keen interest in the arts of presentation and persuasion. I went on to study how people can influence others through the way they present themselves as part of my honours degree in psychology, and am now ideally placed to offer training in presentation and persuasion skills.

By employing a warm and encouraging style of teaching, you will leave feeling confident and ready to face the challenge of a public appearance. The training is practical, highly enjoyable and really relevant to job requirements. At the end of a course you’ll be able to speak with more fluency, authority and persuasion at presentations, conferences, media and job interviews, training sessions and meetings.

I can offer in-house courses for groups, or coaching for individuals at my offices near London Bridge. I can also offer conference-size workshops for large groups of any size. All the training is highly participative and practical – and the course content will be tailored to your specific needs.

 

About Me

I graduated from drama school, LAMDA, and as a professional actor appeared many times both on stage and television. In addition to my professional appearances I later moved into radio, writing, producing and presenting features on air for Capital Radio. I went on to work as a presenter for BBC Television Training at Elstree. Using my presentation experience and working in partnership with the founder of Voiceworks, Philippa Davies, I’ve developed a number of training courses and workshops over the last twenty-one years, helping others to overcome their fear of public speaking. I’ve recently completed a four year part-time degree in psychology at Birkbeck, which has proved a reliable source for the advice I give to others, not only on how to sustain their confidence but also on how to frame their message – email chris@voiceworkslondon.com to discuss developing new courses to fit your needs.
