#business development, do this before pitching

Exercise your voice before you pitch

A while ago, well at the end of 2011, I wrote a #typed note about an app I found to help you prepare for pitching by ensuring your voice intonation (pitch) and speed (be it slow or fast) so these could be monitored as part of your own voice training.  The app, from Vocalytics co-founder Benoit Curdy, is now defunct.

Speech-language pathologist and University of Pittsburgh professor Jackie Gartner-Schmidt now explains that ensuring your voice isn’t thin and shaky voice is key as you come to present and to avoid this, suggests doing this easy exercise (which she calls one of her favourites).
