Speaker

"We were still talking about this presentation two weeks later.  You gave us tools that really made a difference."

As a voice specialist, Erin brings her passion for all the possibilities of the human voice to empower listeners to use their voice to make a difference.  Blending scientific research with music and anecdotes, her presentations are engaging, interactive, and applicable to all.

"I wish I could have recorded the collective gasp of happiness when I first asked how it went. The singers loved having a “singer-oriented workshop,” and the non-singers loved having a workshop that was totally accessible to them. They found the messages really powerful and resonant."



Presentations include:
  • Networking: Using Your Voice to Successfully Build Meaningful Relationships
We generally do business with people we know, like, and trust.  Research shows that we make decisions on whether we trust someone within as little as 4 seconds, largely based on body language and tone of voice.  Using a simple cue to breathe, stand tall, and care, this presentation raises awareness of how our voices can help us connect with others and build relationships that can elevate everything else we do.


  • Leadership: Your Voice is Your Power
