Why is it so hard to find your voice when the stakes are high?

From interviews to presentations, from speeches to sales calls– our ability to talk with confidence is the key to making an impact. In this episode, I talk with UK-based author and voice coach, Caroline Goyder, about how to Find Your Voice.

In this episode, we discuss: 

  • the importance of dealing with the moment when something unexpected happens

  • what Caroline learned from a stand-up comedy director for her TEDx Talk

  • how to properly rehearse a speech

  • Zoom fatigue

  • why theater skills are great for life in helping you remain centered, present, and listening

  • why she recommends using props in place of slides for talks

  • how to deal with anxiety before a presentation

  • the key to sounding confident on calls and video meetings

“Voice is the expression of our aliveness. Voice is life.”

Caroline Goyder is one of the world's best voice coaches working with top executives, speakers, and everyday people who rely on their voice for delivering messages. Her TEDx Talk (The Surprising Secret to Speaking with Confidence) has over 7.5 million views on YouTube, and she is the author of three books, including her latest effort — Find Your Voice: The Secret to Talking with Confidence in Any Situation. She worked for many years at London’s Royal Central School of Speech and Drama as a voice coach before launching her own company. She is regularly sought out by the media, and has been featured on television and in numerous national and international newspapers.

“If we can learn to really like and center into our voice — the whole of life opens up to us.”

What's A Keynote Director Anyway? Why Your Public Speaking Coach Really Isn't Helping You

The Anatomy of a Powerful Keynote: Nine Questions Your Keynote Must Answer for Transformation

Mike Ganino, keynote director



My approach is all about transforming your relationship with your voice, body, and story. It's one thing to write about it - it's another to take a breath and speak the words out loud.

Ready for your close-up?

You don’t need a speaking coach, a formula, or to follow someone else’s steps. You need feedback about how the audience experiences your ideas, your presence, your story, and your speech. 

That’s what a keynote director does.

"Mike helped me create the signature keynote I'd been dreaming of giving.  He was so skillful, artful, creative in helping me create a #mikedropmoment."

“He should have charged me 5x as much because the VALUE I received was so astounding!”

“Working with Mike made me more compelling, more motivational, more relatable, and more myself”

A speaking coach can help you get comfortable.

Only a Keynote Director can help you become a legend.

Your big ideas deserve an EPIC performance. If you’re ready to take your story from alright to epic, let’s chat.
