We are delighted to have our first interview booked for ‘The Way We Talk’. Ros Simmons runs her own company, The Real Speaking Company, that specialises in voice coaching. She has previously worked with the BBC, Granada and a range of medical students, whilst coaching actors too. She has lots of qualifications and experience that enables her to be an exceptional voice coach, teaching both how to master a new accent or how to neutralise your own.
Brian Belo, Big Brother winner from 2008, has tweeted us expressing his interest to be involved in our radio documentary! With his cheeky Essex accent and experiences within the public eye, he would be a great interviewee for the programme.
