Ms. Verdun is a partner in a voice, speech and communication consulting business that addresses and treats a wide range of speech problems ranging from traumatic physical injury to the voice box or muscles to people trying to become better speakers before addressing Congress (since they are based in Washington, DC) or an important meeting or convention. Blake and Ernesto take the opportunity to apply some of her expertise to the world of podcasting and she emphasizes that even though listeners can’t see the hosts or guests, they can hear a smile, they can hear engagement and enthusiasm and it’s important to speak confidently but at a pace where people can understand you. Don’t miss the opportunity to improve your own speech with some great tips from a speech pathologist.
