How to Speak So People Want To Listen – Julian Treasure

We don’t often think of our vocal cords. We admire the voices of our favourite singers, occasionally are blown away by the depth of someone’s voice (here’s one that shook me to the core – Shane Morris reading Max Ehrmann’s Desiderata) but very rarely do we think of our own voices in the same way.

Julian Treasure shows how some simple exercises can change the way you speak. His TED talk, titled “How to Speak So That People Will Want to Listen”, is one video I have shared very often for anyone wanting to improve their public speaking/ presentation skills.
