This workshop will promote and enhance an awareness of what makes your voice interesting and sustainable. If you have ever thought that you are not using your voice to its full potential, or been concerned that it is not as strong or expressive as you would wish, this course could help you improve.

We look at:

  • Pace
  • Rhythm
  • Clarity of speech
  • Facial expression
  • Projection
  • Intonation

Please note that this workshop focuses on how you deliver rather than the content of your presentation. As such, it does not focus on the use of PowerPoint slides, Prezis or similar.

This workshop is delivered by Michael Hargreaves, a RADA trained Director, of Voice in Action.


This course is open to staff (academic and support) and research postgraduate students at all universities. Explorathon Edinburgh contributors may attend free of charge.
