Your Trainer Sylvia Cohen
Sylvia studied voice with Patsy Rosenberg and Jeanette Nielson, the former and current Head of Voice at The National Theatre. It became very clear to her that the exact same tools performers develop to engage their audience, are equally as key to people within the business and media worlds.
If an actor cannot successfully engage their audience, they are out of a job. Similarly, if an executive cannot effectively engage with their team, board members, clients or customers – at some stage in their career, they will hit a glass ceiling.
“Understanding and tailoring my service to different businesses and professionals has been a fascinating process. An experience which has not only been pleasurable, but also added a greater depth to my work.” says Sylvia.
Worked for (amongst others): Deloitte, Drupal, Riffi Kahn, The Telegraph, Sunday Times, BBC, Barclays.
