The voice is crucial to tourist guides. How to care for it and improve its performance and effectiveness when delivering our commentaries?
The “Voice” interactive seminar will explore these important points with practical exercises. It includes voice projection, diction, microphone use and breathing techniques by following the guidelines of the European Standard EN15565:2008. The European Standard sets out the necessary training that tourist guides should follow.
More specifically, we look at how we keep our voice in healthy and optimal condition, how the voice is produced and what it involves, and how to breathe better. We will explore and practice ways of incorporating a variety to speech and narrative through enhancing volume, pace, emphasis, tone, modulation, expression, pitch and articulation.
All qualified tourist guides are eligible to attend.
