Australian Voice Coach

Hi I'm Maria Pellicano and I am an Australian voice coach & public speaker trainer.  I specialise in helping professionals, leaders & organisations improve their voice, presence & confidence. With more than 20 years of experience, I have helped over 5,000 people speak with influence & impact.  During this time, I have seen firsthand the impact that it has when people do not have power in their voice. They are not getting the best out of themselves, they feel stifled, locked up and held back. Focused on giving back power through voice, I provide public speaking and voice coaching, and training, mentoring and coaching and corporate development programs. This is based on my 3-step model: Mindset, Message and Voice. I believe that we only communicate powerfully when we understand how to use voice, mindset and message congruently.

"Everyone has something to say and too often we hold back and are afraid to speak out because of not feeling good enough" Maria Pellicano

On top of that we don’t like the sound of our voice and we stumble over our words. We lack confidence and certainty in what we say and very soon we start to avoid the platform for any speech, conversation or opportunity to voice our ideas. I help you to develop a voice that is strong, a mindset that empowers you to be passionate and committed to your calling and a message that is appropriately designed to address the needs of your specific audience, clients and relationships.  My work includes a blend of strategies for Personal Development, Vocal Coaching and Interpersonal Communication Skills that will help the success of your professional and personal relationships.

"The power of words are weighted by the vocal tone that once chooses to use" Maria Pellicano
