"Arriving at Waterstones, Covent Garden, I was greeted by actor, author and professional voice coach, Norma Cohen.  Fortunately for the participants, helping people make the most of their voices and their words is where Norma excels. She encouraged us to engage with every member of the audience – and since the audience would be sitting in a semicircle, this meant moving about and making eye contact. Norma was happy with my general delivery, but suggested places where I should pause to give the words time to sink in, and words where greater inflection was required. She wanted me to start the chapter with a shout – quite an intimidating prospect!

 

As it progressed, the practice session became interactive. Norma had us each read lines from our first chapters in turn, which gave us the opportunity to compare delivery techniques and had the effect of making us match rather than compete with each other’s voices. Finally, before the audience arrived, she put us through some relaxation exercises – to which I added a glass of white wine, for good measure."
