Kate Skellern | Spoken word voice coach

Kate Skellern's -The Connection Method

Learning to speak with impact, boldness and a connection to your voice, words and body is essential for career development, as well as for personal relationships.  Listening to someone speak who is fully connected to their vocal and physical presence is an absolute pleasure for any audience or team. Watching someone speak in public who is disconnected to themselves can be torture for both the performer and the audience!

Without this connection, your voice will sound flat and uninteresting and being heard and seen will be a struggle for you. It is vital if you are a leader of people and business that you recognise the need for change.

Whatever your unique issues might be, we will work together from the start of your story to change how you feel about your vocal ability. Also to change how you sound and look to an audience. We will explore how poor communication might be affecting areas of your life and by finding your authenticity, we will unlock your voice and create the happy, confident and successful individual you want to be.

I have a lifetime of experience in voice, acting and stage presence.

I worked extensively as an actress and singer for 25 years after graduating from Drama Studio London and I have a Diploma as a Certified Transformational Life Coach. I am also the Founder and Director of the Skellern School of Speech and Drama where I have taught 1000’s of students for the past 15 years.

Kate Skellern - Brave Voice
It has been my privilege to grow up within the entertainment industry. My father was the talented musician, singer and songwriter Peter Skellern, and he afforded me a deep understanding of working at the top of your game. Working with  leaders as I do now, I find there are many similarities to their world and the creative industry. Pressure is pressure where ever you work.

Engage your audience. Face public speaking fears and learn how to overcome them.
Reconnect with your true voice and learn how to speak authentically.
Expand your vocal range in order to express yourself dynamically in both your  professional & personal life.

'Think before you speak' Programme

A 6 session programme that looks at what your ultimate goal is for your performance and your voice.
Why do you feel held back? What is holding you back? How do you move forward?
Your voice is a window into your thoughts. It gives away our secrets, it wobbles, it fails us, it breaks and we find it very hard to disguise our emotions when we speak.

To help you, I combine the 25 years experience I have as a performer and my qualifications as an accredited coach.
You will step forward into a new story.

Join me for this 6 session programme, it will change the way you think and importantly, the way you speak. P.O.A
