Workshop "Mastering Lecture Skills: Voice and Intonation"
Voice is a unique instrument that we possess. It needs care and fine-tuning before the performance and sophisticated control during the performance to communicate ideas clearly and with impact. The workshop will first provide a set of relaxation and articulation warm-ups that will help enhance voice stamina, diction and help combat stage fright. Second, it will teach how to use volume, pitch, rate, pauses, and inflection meaningfully to orchestrate a presentation delivery to the presenter's best advantage.
