How To Turn Your Voice Into A Powerful Asset
Have you ever been to a meeting, seminar or a workshop where the speaker is so monotonous that you just want to run away from that room? You keep looking at your watch again and again hoping and praying for a break? You are sitting there physically but your mind has drifted to thousands of other places? And even though the speaker is sharing great content, you find it extremely hard to sit through the talk? I am quite sure you have been to at least one such meeting, seminar or workshop. But have you ever wondered why you felt so tortured? Well! You felt tortured because, how a speaker sounds is as important as what he says!

But what about you, what if you too wish to develop your voice but have neither the time nor the money to work with a coach?
