What does power sound like? Loud? Brash? Masculine? Well, it's time to change that.
In this warm and witty manual, foremost Hollywood voice coach Samara Bay offers a compelling approach to asserting your power in all arenas of life. And it's not what you think. Packed with expert tips, easy-to-follow exercises, eye-opening research and anecdotes, Permission to Speak is designed to liberate and inspire even the most tentative of public speakers.
Here's the truth: if you're a woman, a person of colour, an immigrant or queer, there's often dissonance between how you speak and how we collectively think powerful people should speak. We're encouraged to chase the standard set by the wealthy white men who've historically been in charge - while trying to 'be authentic' at the same time! It doesn't make sense.
Permission to Speak is the solution, as it moves deftly from the fundamentals of breath, pitch and tone to the musicality of storytelling, the art of emotion and why exactly you've picked up the habits you have. Samara Bay explodes what we think we know about our voices and how they should sound, and she gets to the very heart of what they can be.
