My name's Emily Lee, CEO founder of Speaking Voices. I am a Voice Coach specialising in speech and verbal communication. I pride myself in helping people use their own wonderful voices to convey their points of view effortlessly.
I started my career as an Actor with experience in Theatre, Film and TV when I realised the most important tool for an actor is their VOICE! Not only did I learn how to portray a character's emotions, but just from observing people's interactions in everyday life helped me understand the connection people have with others and the authenticity we need to communicate what we want.
In 2016, an opportunity arose where I joined the renowned Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, one of the top drama schools outside of London to complete a Masters in Professional Voice Practice. My studies included vocal anatomy, the connection between the body and the breath and the art of speaking. During my dissertation, I explored the extent of how culture affects our ability to speak.
So in the midst of lockdown, I decided to combine my wealth of acting experience with my voice knowledge and created this company. I went from being a reserved, passive listener to a brave, confident speaker. To read more about my own personal journey read my blog here.
Now I want to share with you, all the amazing vocal techniques I learnt that changed my life. If you want to get involved in voicing your best possible self, email me!
