Elocution Lesson with Laura Field


On Wednesday morning Sarah and I got the half 8 train to Nottingham, to record Laura Field teach Sarah how to speak with more clarity! Laura, a professional voice coach and founder of her own business Spoken Word, works from a studio in her home. She welcomed us with open arms, a warm cup of tea and a lovely chat discussing our project.

Before Sarah experienced her first elocution lesson, we spoke with Laura about her business and how important the way we speak is to each and every individual. Afterwards I recorded Laura work with Sarah for around half an hour, completing a range of exercises to improve her speech and overall confidence.

I’ve put edited together the best bits of Laura’s interview and Sarah’s lesson, to listen click the link below.

A Morning with Laura Field

Sarah and I would like to thank Laura for her hospitality and contribution to the documentary, it was definitely worth the early start and was a great insight into the world of voice coaching!

Liz Brewer


Last week Sarah and I conducted an interview over Skype with Liz Brewer, the Etiquette and Social Protocol teacher in the T.V series ‘Ladette to Lady’. Liz, who has two books published, spoke to us concerning her opinions on local accents when working  in the business industry. Talking to Liz, it became clear that she has a love for local accents, but stressed they can become a problem if they are difficult to understand. Thank you very much to Liz for taking part, it was a great interview which we thoroughly enjoyed!
