|Newsletter December 2013
Recently, while researching various music history literature for a project, I came upon an interesting book written by Carl Maria von Weber, an eminent German composer of the early 19th century. In his book he imagines the instruments of the orchestra talking and discussing between each other. This idea fascinated me as every instrument is a strong personality with very different traits and temperamentcharacter so I have been thinking how colourful, lively, creative the discussion would be. Could we do something similar? Perhaps think of people around us, people we work with and imagine we are music instruments. What ideas would we come up with? Could we achieve a shift in creative thinking?
What's up this month?

Music & Leadership Tip - improve your public speaking with new colours
Lately I have had a number of clients helping them improve their public speaking skills. One thing I noticed with most trainees was that the sound of their voice was monotone, they speak with, as I metaphorically tell them ' with one colour' . To captivate our audience we need to speak 'with various colours'. Implementing various techniques to achieve a colourful presentation, my trainees saw/heard an immediate result. The presentation opened up leaving the trainees with a happy, satisfied smile.
I am offering till 31 January a special offer for public speaking coaching. Feel free to contact me for further information.
Wishing you a happy and joyful holiday season!
