MEET THE SPEECH DIVA
YOUR NEW SECRET WEAPON
“THE PERSON—YOU—ARE TRYING TO REACH—IS UN—AVAIL—ABLE—PLEASE. LEAVE. A MESSAGE.”
Got a big presentation and you’re afraid the words won't come out? Do friends, family and colleagues accuse you of mumbling? Do you trip over your tongue when it's time to express your feelings? Are you afraid to open your mouth and speak your truth?
And then to top it all off, you let that weird robot lady answer your calls for you because you can’t stand to listen to the sound of your own voice--amiright?
I GET IT.
That's why I do what I do.
Many years ago, I was cast in a prestigious production of a new musical. There were lots of talented and creative people involved in bringing this beautiful piece of theatre to fruition. I was honored to work with such illustrious theater artists. I worked hard, and was proud of my efforts. After the curtain came down on opening night, a director whom I deeply admired and wished to impress with the hope that he would someday cast me, came to me and said, “D’Arcy, you were wonderful. If only I could have heard you.”
UGH. A punch in the gut. But Jed’s comment was a wake-up call. And it ultimately led me to do the work that I do.
Now I help people speak their truth. With confidence. Clarity. Strength. Passion. Brio.
