Our August 2020 event was quite special as we celebrated our 2 year anniversary with presentations powered by PechaKucha. Drawing its name from the Japanese word for chit-chat, PechaKucha is a presentation format with the aim to use 20 images each for 20 seconds. Through this powerful storytelling technique, we took a dive into different topics that presented by fellow language professionals.
The first presentation we’d like to share with you was by Emma Songeur.
In this talk entitled “Connecting to your Voice”, Emma guided us through a practical exercise to help us connect with our voice in order to improve the way we communicate.
Emma Songeur is now an International Voice and Accent coach after studying her MA in Training Actors at Guildhall School of Music and Drama. Originally a trained Engineer and with five years working across three continents in Strategic Purchasing for a multinational corporation, she brings a problem solving approach to her clients in any industry. Over the past 16 years she has taught many people languages and pronunciation: children in Sweden, business executives in London, refugees in Greece.
Since graduating she has taken the position of Lead Voice Teacher for the international actors at Regent’s University in London and last year designed and led a three year syllabus in freeing the voice, Shakespeare and Musical Theatre.
Reach out to Emma on LinkedIn and connect with her here. She’ll be pleased to hear from you.
See you all next month, when we’ll share another Pechakucha style talk. Same format … another powerful story, another journey.
