Interactive Session:
Finding your authentic voice: how to speak from the heart
Presented by Barbara Ann Grant

Every business person needs to find a compelling voice that expresses the passion and drive behind the words. Finding this authentic voice is a critical success factor that draws clients to you and creates a magnetic attraction to the services you offer. In this session we will learn to let go of nerves, have fun with the voice, make sound without self-consciousness and learn the art of truly connecting with your audience. When we find the freedom to unlock our authentic voice we, 'speak from the heart' and give our words an emotional truth that instantly compels our listener.

Barbara Ann Grant is a highly experienced change management consultant and voice coach. Barbara runs her own business opening up individuals and groups self-confidence and creativity through the medium of voice. Barbara's organisation, 'Soundworkz' is dedicated to unlocking the authentic voice in all of us.

Main Speaker:
Marketing Your Speaking Business
Presented by John Bishop

For a professional speaker, speaking should not be an interest or a hobby. It's should be a business from which you aim to earn money.

The only test of whether you are good enough to make money is that you do so. So here from the many hard lessons that I have learned about the speaking business is some distilled wisdom. In this practical session, learn how to translate your passion for a subject into a presentation that people will pay to hear.

John Bishop has been active as a professional speaker since 2003. He was President of the Wellington Chapter of NSANZ in 2005. He is also a trainer, facilitator, commentator, journalist, marketing and PR strategist and speech writer. See He writes a weekly blog on current affairs at Wellington issues at and is a regular guest on The Panel on Jim Mora's Afternoons Show on National Radio.
