Who are we?
Founder/Director | Voice and Communications Coach (MA Voice, LSDE, BA hons)
Jude runs Speaking Works which provides voice and communication coaching for businesses and privately. The workshops she runs covers anything from presentation skills, articulation and managing nerves to managing difficult conversations. Jude is also a visiting lecturer at The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. Previous clients include Vodafone, TUI, Disney, Ketchum PR, TeachFirst, FDA, Accenture.
Jude is skilled in presentation technique and public speaking. As a coach, the combination of her previous roles in office environments and the skills that were required there combined with her MA give her a unique understanding of how to communicate with authenticity and impact in various situations. Jude believes that excellent communication is about confidently being yourself whilst having an awareness of what you are saying and the impact of your physical and vocal expression.
Alongside corporate voice coaching Jude also runs Speaking Works Young Voices providing speech and drama classes for children in Herts, Hove and China. Before this she worked as a peripatetic LAMDA (The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art) teacher at various schools. Whilst living in Hong Kong Jude introduced LAMDA examinations to a learning centre which is now the official representative for LAMDA.
