Elocution lessons are back but its no longer about speaking the Queen's English. Elocution can otherwise be known as accent reduction or accent softening and looks at your style or manner of speaking, especially in public.

Communication is an important part of our working lives. By having strong communicating skills you can set yourself apart from others when looking for that new job, promotion, delivering that presentation in front of crowd at a conference, inspiring your staff at a team meeting, or pitching an idea to a potential new client, to name but a few.

A great way to find out if you might benefit from elocution would be if you find yourself answering 'Yes' to one or more of the following types of questions:
- Do you fear speaking in public?
- Are you are often asked to repeat yourself?
- Do you feel you've been overlooked for a new job or promotion?
- Think you maybe speak too quickly?
- Would you like to soften your regional, estuary or foreign accent?
- Have you a lack of confidence in your voice?

If you are looking to soften your accent, improve your vocal technique or develop your communication skills, my one to one sessions are ideal. I work towards developing a confident and expressive voice with crisp and clear speech.

Charlotte Grundy tailors the lessons to the individuals requirements - whether its working on a particularly difficult sound, improving breath control and volume, accent reduction or improving presentation skills.
