No one feels confident all the time, but great preparation, training and refining
are the qualities that make a professional be the top performer. Your voice should be ready for a networking event, speaking engagement at all times.

  • Keep your throat clear with a lemon slice in warm or cool water, or drink a clarifying tea.  This helps to keep phlegm out of your throat.  
  • If you have a sore throat, it is best to refrain from speaking and mentally practice instead.  But if the Show must go on (so to speak)..then...
  • Try putting a bit of honey in warm lemon water or tea to soothe the throat.  
  • Do not overuse your voice, as this just aggravates the vocal chords. Many people whisper and/or use a numbing spray on their throat.  
  • Numbing spray is not recommended since your sore throat is your body telling you something is wrong.  The numbing effect masks the problem and can lead to more serious vocal complications later.
  • Whispering just forces more air through an already infected area...again causing more harm and possibly delaying recovery.

 The way you sound is the very next thing that people will remember.  The pitch of your voice, the richness of tone, the way you communicate will translate into a lasting impression..not everyone will see you, but they will hear you!
