Hi Maureen, I'm hoping you remember me! I'm Erica Davis. You used to tutor me around 20 years ago – at your house in Jeffcock Rd. I really just wanted to thank you for all you did for me. I've had an amazing life and fantastic opportunities that I think you were a part of, due to your great teaching skills and also giving me so much confidence in myself and abilities.
The tuition you provided was just right to ensure a successful outcome for my wedding speech and to thank you for your help. Many Thanks. –
6 weeks ago even the thought of making my wedding speech was preventing me from getting excited about my own wedding. Now after the help from Vocal Integrity I feel as though I have conquered a phobia that I have had for almost 20 years and I am not in a position where I am positively looking forward to my wedding and making my speech. Thank you very much. -
I have known Maureen professionally for over 20 years. An incredibly reliable and knowledgeable person, who is a leading expert and well respected in the field of speech and drama. Maureen enabled me to improve my presentation skills and increased my confidence to achieve early career success. I would strongly recommend her. -
Thank you so much for seeing my colleague yesterday, she was over the moon with the day and was singing your praises to high heaven. No more than you deserve of course. It was so kind of you to take the trouble to help her. She is a really bright woman, but gets very nervous when she has to speak to a group of people. She says that she feels much more confident now and I am sure that her presentation in Rome will be a great success thanks to your tuition. -
I swiftly had the confidence that Maureen at Vocal Integrity had the experience and expertise to help me achieve my objectives to improve my presentations and for my French colleague to soften his accent. My impression of Vocal Integrity is very positive. The value of effective communication can bring to any organisation has the potential to be great, and I will certainly be using Vocal Integrity at some point in the future.
