• Utilize an effective 31-day program that will absolutely change how you communicate for the better.
• Many people fail in their communication simply because the sound of their voice does not align with their message. It is possible to change that.
• If you want to change your voice, you have to be aware of how you sound and what you like and don’t like about your voice.
• To accomplish this, you have to listen to yourself and others.
• You have to become aware of the sound you are creating and the effect it has on others.
• You have to be willing to change the sound.
• And most importantly, you have to know how to make that change in such a way that you don’t create problems with your voice.
• You can choose to have your voice more fully support your sense of who you are and what you want to do with your life, and you can have a healthy, vibrant sound.
• This book is full of ideas, tools, techniques, and exercises that can help you.

“Professional speaker or occasional presenter, you’ll benefit from this book. As I read it, my highlighter ran out of ink. Ms. Peters made me more aware of why and how I communicate. I learned why talking to mysels isn’t bad, how to sharpen my listening skills, and how to evaluate my intentions for better communication. I speak professionally and understand the need for vocal image and power. As I write this, I’m in the midst of her recommended exercises. My wife, a semi-professional singer, smiled when I talked about this book and said, “It’s nice that you get it and understand the power of voice.”

Understanding and learning how to use my voice more powerfully and effectively will help in every aspect of my professional and personal relationships. Right away, I started doing some of the exercises and found an immediate change, not only in response from people, but in my own perception of my voice. With the insights from this book, I look forward to mastering my vocal impressions. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to improve the power of their voice.”

“Early in my career as CEO, a few lessons with Kate on improving my voice were greatly appreciated and highly effective. We often think that communication is all about the content, flow, energy & your look/presentation style. Working with Kate proved to me that the sound of my voice should not be taken for granted or ignored. She helped me see that “When your intention, your message, and your voice are all clear, others cannot help but listen.”
