WHAT PEOPLE SAY

MARIANNE JAMES, GRAPHIC DESIGNER
I FOUR DESIGNS

I have known Rebecca for five years, and have worked with her and Sing Happy as a graphic designer/marketer for four.

I have attended her Come & Sing workshops and have sung for her when she conducted the Amici Chamber Choir. She is an exceptionally talented singer, musician and performer, and as a natural communicator she uses her experience and knowledge to inspire people to give of their best. Rebecca is a good orator who engages her audience with her natural and easy to understand delivery style, inserting humour and making people relax and enjoy what she has to say. I would recommend her to anyone for tuition whether for singing or speaking. She is knowledgeable and demanding of her students but gets results. I now have no fear of singing a solo or speaking to people thanks to Rebecca’s support and encouragement, and I know I will continue to improve with her expert help.

RENDA PINKNEY, OWNER

RRED CONSULTANCY LTD

I have been so fortunate to have met Rebecca this year. Rebecca’s friendly disposition, supportive coaching approach, and wealth of expertise left me with no doubt that she would be exactly what I needed to help build my daughter’s confidence. Through Rebecca’s passion for what she does, along with her patience and great skill to recognise and adapt her techniques to suit the person’s exact needs, I have seen my daughter’s confidence grow week by week. Rebecca, I can’t ever thank you enough. I would have no hesitation in recommending Rebecca’s services to anyone.

SHERYL ANDREWS

THE LISTENING DETECTIVE

I had the opportunity to meet this wonderful lady who is offering "Make your voice heard courses". As I listened I started to realise that I had developed some bad habits with my breathing and speaking as a result of being fearful of speaking and upsetting someone. Whilst I have overcome the fear of feedback, I could now see that I needed to develop better habits, one of which is how I breathe. I spent just an hour with Rebecca and the one voice coaching technique she shared with me transformed my experience. If you are looking for some fun in life and you want to learn some new skills and making your voice heard would be of interest to you, then please get in touch with Rebecca.

JEN TAYLOR, OWNER

BUSINESS TREE CONSULTANCY

I rarely come across real talents who stand out like Rebecca. I had the pleasure of working with Rebecca at our online Lunch and Learn event where she was a guest speaker on Public Speaking. Rebecca's ability to engage with the audience with her abundance of energy and professional style was warmly received by our attendees. She was a pleasure to work with and I look forward to collaborating in the future.

KEVIN COPE

ENTREPRENEUR COACH, KORU CONNECTIONS

I can strongly recommend booking a call with Rebecca. I had picked up some bad habits from being on too many Zoom calls and Rebecca was able to help me with some techniques on posture, breath control and speaking confidently. It is a different world we find ourselves in so book a call, it will help you deliver your message more effectively.  

KATLIN NOGU

DIRECTOR, THE BUSINESS LAUNCH ACADEMY

A session with Rebecca was absolutely invaluable for me! For a long time I have been looking for somebody who has experience and knowledge to help me out on how to present myself and how to hold my thoughts as well as speak better in front of a bigger audience. I am so happy that I met her - she just got me - and helped me improve my skills very fast and in a very efficient manner. She is so friendly and incredibly talented at what she does and her breathing exercises will change my life! I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants to become more confident at presenting and talking. 

ROBIN OLVER

FINANCE MANAGER, GRIPSURE UK LTD

I had two very productive sessions with Rebecca which have helped me to improve my presence on screen and create effective content. This has made a significant positive impact on my confidence and clarity of message.

ALISON GORDON, DIRECTOR
THE COMPUTER LADY LTD

Had a voice coaching lesson with Rebecca, to help with my confidence in public speaking. It was the best session I have had. She explained some very simple things I could do to improve my voice projection and gave me some very useful exercises, explaining why they would help. I would recommend Rebecca to anybody looking to improve public speaking.

 

VIKKIE RICHMOND
PINK SPAGHETTI PA SERVICES

I had the good fortune to work with Rebecca over three sessions on a one-to-one basis. As someone who is not a natural networker, I was seeking help with my networking pitch, my vocal strength and my presentation skills. Not only did I learn some fantastic vocal and breathing exercises (along with sound advice on posture, particularly useful for Zoom calls), but Rebecca's advice was invaluable in helping to hone my pitch and my presentation style. I would highly recommend Rebecca as an expert in her field and I also can't wait to join her 'Sing Happy' group, post-COVID.

SHARON BROER, DIRECTOR/CEO
ARGUS - ULTIMATE BUSINESS SUPPORT

Public speaking and I did really not go hand in hand. I met Rebecca networking and in a hour she worked her "magic" with me. I am definitely still a work in progress but......much progress has been made thus far and I would suggest anybody in the same position, spends some time with Rebecca. I cannot recommend her professionalism and skill enough.

ERNIE (SAID) BOXALL

FOUNDER AT ERNIESAID

It has just been my enormous pleasure to have a 1-2-1 with Rebecca and listen to her fascinating story and her passion for speaking and singing. Business owners who have to network, or who send partners to network meetings should make sure they contact her first so that they can make the maximum impact on the greatest number of people without the stress of facing a live audience, unprepared.

LYNN REES

VIRTUAL ASSISTANT

I attended Rebecca's Eventbrite session - Lights, Camera, Action as I've always had difficulty speaking out in large groups and with the amount of zoom calls I attend, so I needed a bit of a helping hand! During the hour session, Rebecca talked me through some practical tips that would assist me in sounding more confident whilst introducing myself, we then moved onto a 40 second pitch that could be adapted according to the area of my work I wanted to focus on. Rebecca has a very encouraging and positive vibe that fills you with a "I can do this" mindset and I came away with some extremely useful and practical tips that I am keen to put into action!  

JON IACOMINO

CEO, JRI CONSULTANCY LTD T/A BBX DEVON

I just had a fantastic voice coaching session with Rebecca of Speak Happy. I was recently advised that I have a monotone voice especially in the mornings and that when I am asking a question because I am interested in a person, it can come over either as I feel they are stupid or accusatory. So, having met Rebecca many times networking and hearing great referrals from people I trust like Tim Jackson, I decided with some apprehension to book a session. I must admit, I did not think you can teach an old dog new tricks. I was not expecting to be taught breathing exercises, smiling techniques and better posture but was genuinely surprised at the positive effect to the way I sounded. Once I got over the embarrassment of making silly sounds, I really got into the session and gained a great insight on how I can improve. So, if you see me out networking or have a 1-2-1, I would love to know if you find me engaging and not accusatory but don’t forget I need to practice to achieve perfection. If your role involves talking, I strongly recommend a session with Rebecca. Don’t forget we only need to find a 2% improvement to get better results.

JULIE RIEWALD

STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIP MANAGER, MATRIX247

Listening to Rebecca is a joy to say the least - her singing is simply amazing but her knowledge is not any less interesting or valuable. I do recommend a 1-2-1 with Rebecca to explore how she can best help you should you lack confidence speaking or presenting. With her stage experience she'll soon show you how to frighten the hell out of your stage fright :) so you can take your success to another level.
