  • A Face Lift for Your Voice: Tips & Tricks for Keeping Your Voice Sounding as Young as You Feel

    Meredith Colby, Author

    TOPIC CATEGORY: Educational

    Meredith Colby, author of Money Notes: How to Sing High, Loud, Healthy, and Forever shows you how to preserve, and even regain, the youthful sound of your voice. MORE >

    Our speaking voices are something we take for granted; until something goes wrong. They’re part of our self-image, so we want them to project our “real self” to the world. When we begin to realize that our speaking voices “sound old”, or that we can’t sing the way we used to, most of us simply give in to the aging process. But that doesn’t feel good - it feels like a loss when we notice those changes in our voices that we associate with age.

    Some of the physical elements of an aging voice are unavoidable, but not all! Meredith educates her audiences about the voice - how and why it works so well for us - and shares simple exercises and principles that people can work into their everyday lives and habits. Over time, those who apply what they’ve learned experience their voices as stronger and more resilient, taking joy in a voice that positively reflects how they feel about themselves.

    You’ll learn:
    • How the sound of your voice effects how others see you, and how you see yourself!
    • What the aging process does to the voice.
    • What happens to the voice after menopause?
    • How a minute a day is enough to implement powerful tools to strengthen the voice!
    • How to feel good about your singing again!

    An engaging speaker and an expert in her field, Meredith leaves her audiences both informed and empowered.

  • Fads, Trends, and Being Relevant Over the Long Haul

    Gavin Johnston, Chief Strategy Officer, Bradley & Montgomery

    TOPIC CATEGORY: Business

    Staying on top of social and cultural change is difficult. It requires thoughtful observation, reflection, and the ability to connect dots that may go unnoticed in many cases. Similarly, being able to distinguish a trend from a short-lived fit of social interest can make the difference between a meaningful campaign or marketing platform, and a one-hit wonder. Understanding the difference between fads and trends is critical for all organizations. Unfortunately, many decision makers seem to be unaware of their important differences. MORE >

    Both fads and trends play an important role in a marketing effort’s success, but they aren’t the same thing and they need to be treated differently. If they are not, leaders risk burning out adapting to every fad, and critical trends required for a brand’s long-term survival may be missed. So, what are the key differences?
