Overview

Based on the renowned Hudson Voice Technique, this public speaking and presentation skills course will teach you how to control your tone, pace and pitch when speaking. When you have control, it gives confidence. When you have more confidence, your audience will have more confidence in you and what you say.

Created by Steve Hudson; international award winning voiceover and communication skills trainer.

In a matter of hours, you will see a radical change in the way you deliver words.

People study for years to qualify for their chosen profession and then gain experience in the work place. They can now be considered experts. However, there is something missing - none of us were taught a communication technique (set of rules) at school, we were simply taught to string words together.

The PSR Method changes your speech pattern from instinct to technique, enabling people to become more aware of the way they speak, learn how to control their voice and the way words are delivered.

Without a technique, we are left to use our instinct.

Dictionary definition:

instinct /in’stingkt’/ n.

The innate aspect of behaviour that is unlearned.

In other words you are making up your own rules; you're ‘guessing’.

On the other hand, it describes technique /tek-neek/ as follows:

  1. A set of specific rules which determine the degree of excellence.
  2. The degree of skill or command of fundamentals exhibited in any performance.

Instead of us telling you how effective this presentation skills and public speaking course is, let's leave it to those who have already done the course......

“The Hudson Voice Technique is powerful structured technique that teaches to use your voice like a precision tool to convey emotion and conviction, draw your listener in, and enhance memory retention. This is an essential part of your influencing toolkit.”
Mike Clayton, Business Speaker and Author

"This course is hands on, You start improving how you read and apply your voice in the first 20 min. You are given the tools and all you need to do is apply, compare and practice."
Tania Ras-Devereux

"I will be forever more mindful of the way I speak when doing presentations and my podcast. In a little over 2 hours I have learned enough to change the way I speak forever. Thank you for a great course."
Nolan Collins

"This course delivers exactly what it says it will. At the beginning of the course you are asked to record a number of lines to the best of your ability so you can compare it with what you sound like at the end. I was skeptical about how much I was improving during the course... I mean, sure, I learned some good advice but I didn't feel any huge improvement.

Then I recorded the final readings and compared them to my firsts and wow... mind blown!

This course gives basic advice and intriguing explanations for how to improve your voice while reading a script that has monumental results. …All in all this is a course where the results speak for themselves and I highly suggest it."
Malcolm Tolman

"I really enjoyed this course. I found that his method makes it very easy to analyze the most complex blocks of reading and devise how to get through it -- all on the fly! Great job. Totally worth my time and money!"

Description

What you will learn:

  • How to control your pace – most of us talk too fast – especially when nervous or under pressure
  • Use the three vital rules at the end of a sentence – Sound more confident and decisive
  • How to pitch a script – add immense power to presentations
  • Control the tone of you voice – become a more dynamic public speaker
  • Recognise 'Red Flag Words' – boost the impact on the audience
  • How to read a script – 95% perfect, first take, without rehearsal.

How it works:

  • Before you start the lessons, we ask you to record some scripts to establish your stating point.
    Keep these scripts in a folder.
  • Go through the lessons. Although the video will be a certain amount of time, you will be asked to read and record during the lessons.
    Keep these recordings for yourself so you can listen back to them to criticise your work.
  • Once you've gone through all the lessons, we ask you to practise for about a week, combining the lessons.
  • When you are happy with your progress, we ask you to record the same scripts you read before you started the course.
    Place these in the folder you created and where you placed your 'Before Recordings'.
  • Send the Before and After recordings to us and Steve will assess your progress.
  • If he is satisfied you have mastered what you've been taught, he will send you your Voicemaster Diploma.

You will be provided with a work booklet which we ask you to print before you start. There is also the option of reading certain scripts on-screen, just like an autocue/teleprompter.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
