In episode eight of Mumbition The Podcast,Carrie and Lucy were lucky enough to be joined by a guest who has stepped off the stage with some searing, practical tips on how women can perfect their pitch performance   

Lisa Lockland-Bell is a vocal voice coach who loves helping women tap into the power of their voice. Chatting in this episode with Carrie and Lucy about how women can learn to use their voice with gravitas and confidence, Lisa shares advice on how the simple way you introduce yourself, has the potential to make or break an interaction.

What is one thing that you wish all business women would do with their voice?

“Great question. And there is one standard answer, and that is that they get their inflections the right way. So when they introduce themselves and say their name to introduce it with gravitas and to make sure that they've got a downward inflection and not an upward inflection.”

Can you please share your pitch with us?

“After studying the physical voice for more than 40 years - because I wanted to become a grand opera diva - and then studying the internal voice for more than 25 years, the very thing that kept me alive after having cancer was the connection to my internal voice.

I can honestly say that I know what it feels like to have a voice that isn't heard, and there's nothing worse for a human being to feel disconnected and unheard. So I put my two worlds together, my internal voice and my physical voice, and created a program to help women to speak with confidence and gravitas in every situation.”

How do you protect yourself from business risk?

“It comes back to staying in my lane.You know, I do what I know best and what I know. My purpose in this lifetime is and I just stay in that lane and I tend to have blinkers on in that. I don't compare myself to others.

I don't watch what other people are doing, and I make sure that I'm on track with being the best version I can for my clients.So that's the thing that's kept me out of that risk factor, I don't try and be something that I'm not.”

What is the most important tip in that path to growing a business?

“Make sure you love what you do. That's very important for authenticity and growing the business and not burning yourself out. Also knowing what it is, the product and the service, having a deep and profound understanding of how that's actually going to help your community or your clientele, understanding who your avatar is, of course, what their pain points are and and servicing that with whatever it is that you're offering in your business.”
