 In response to the coronavirus pandemic, we’ve adapted our personal impact coaching in order to best support those working from home.

In these unprecedented times, you may have found yourself needing to manage your team remotely by phone or online platforms; perhaps you’re taking on additional leadership responsibilities; or like many thousands of business leaders, you may have more time on your hands to devote to your own personal development goals.

Regardless of your circumstances in these trying times, our personal impact coaches are able to help you enhance your communication style. 

The voice of leadership

Bristol Old Vic Theatre School has been training the stars of stage and screen for more than 70 years. Some of the most influential actors in theatre, radio, film and TV have learnt their craft with us, including the likes of Olivia Colman, Patrick Stewart, Daniel Day-Lewis and Naomie Harris. Our personal impact coaching utilises the same techniques we teach actors in order to enable you to become a more influential and charismatic communicator.

Executive Voice and Personal Impact Coaching

Voice coaching is designed to give you the essential practical tools for developing a stronger and more resonant voice and clearer speech. It will give you the skills and confidence to make the most of your individual communication style, in turn maximising the effectiveness of your leadership.

Whether negotiating in the boardroom, pitching in front of an audience, or helping your team manage a period of change, the language of influence is far more than just what you say – how you say it makes all the difference.

All our coaching is personalised, tailored specifically to you and your professional needs. Starting with a bespoke diagnostic, your coach will develop a plan to allow you to develop a more impactful communication style.

A typical programme

A typical programme covers some of the following topics:

• Projecting your voice with ease and confidence;
• Increasing the impact of your presentations;
• Speaking with clarity and credibility;
• Looking and sounding authentic while managing stress hormones;
• Developing gravitas and approachability through understanding body language and vocal tone.

  • “My coach gave me an invaluable insight into techniques for public speaking that I was able to put to use after two hours’ tuition, to great effect. I was more relaxed, confident and able to get my message across much more clearly.”

Data Statement

I’m constantly delighted by the talent, commitment and drive of our students. Their curiosity and joy in the work gives us all energy and keeps me on my toes! My goal is to ensure that their voices serve their acting - both in theatre and recorded media. They need to be able to project, learn accents, respond to a wide variety of texts and have a voice that is healthy and be able to sustain long tours and tough filming schedules. This involves them working extremely hard – but having fun as well. When the new students see the final year students in production for the first time I know they’ll come into class the next day fully understanding the high standard they’re working to achieve.
