Voicework for Coaches

Speaker: Allison MacTavish, Voice & Speech Coach 


The human voice is a powerful instrument of communication and our primary vehicle for connecting, leading and inspiring others. Learning about how it works and how to optimise its use will help coaches to increase their impact. 

Coaches are professional voice users in that they rely heavily on their voices to carry out their work. That’s why it’s essential for coaches to have a strong, clear and flexible voice, which they can rely on to build trust and connect with their clients


  • Acquire a better understanding of your vocal instrument
  • Get insight into your own vocal habits
  • Learn about the foundations of voice i.e., What makes for a strong, clear and persuasive voice?
  • Learn practical techniques used by performers and professional speakers to improve your vocal capacity

ICF Core Competencies

  • Establishing Trust and Intimacy with the Client  
  • Coaching Presence
  • Creating Awareness
