The surprising secret to speaking with confidence

by Caroline Goyder

Your voice is an instrument. There is never a bad saxophone. Practice … sing …

The most powerful person in room has the most relaxed breath. We can control our breathing. Get still.

Diaphragm is the way to regulate our system – our king of confidence and key. Breathe from diaphragm rather than high in your chest.

Breath and air. We breath our thoughts. We can control our voice. Inspiration and respiration have the same route

If you want to have confidence in speech all need to do is to know when to shut your mouth.

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. In this fun and personal talk, Caroline shares a story of moving from stage-paralysis to expressive self. Accompanied by an unusual prop, she encourages us to use our voice as an instrument and really find the confidence within.
