One-to-One Voice Coaching
How to develop a voice that commands attention, gets you respect and makes people look up to you?
“The knower of the mystery of sound knows the mystery of the whole universe.” - Hazrat Inayat Khan
Why does the same message conveyed by two different people produce very different impact?
Most people see voice as just a tool to conveying information. But the same message relayed by you versus another person can produce very different impact because people don't just listen to the message. People perceive the weight of your message on whether to trust you, or not, based on how you sound.
Your Voice reflects your thoughts, beliefs and conviction to people.
If you look at charismatic leaders, professional speakers or well-respected politicians, most of them, if not all, have gone through voice training. Their voices give people the confidence in what they say and show the congruence of their thoughts and beliefs.
When you train your voice towards your fullest potential, it has the power to motivate and move people. So they said, our voice can start or stop a war, make or break a bond. You can improve your ability to inspire and speak to people's hearts. You can build trust and create a following, just by improving your voice.
Introducing: Full Voice Training
If you have any of the following problems, or your voice is constantly undermining your competence and confidence, Full Voice Training is for you.
- Experience a trembling voice, a tight throat, pitch going high or speaking fast in the beginning of your presentations;
- Sound too young and you feel your voice does not match up with your experience and capability;
- Have a soft voice and you can’t project your voice to be heard in a bigger room;
- Sound nasal that doesn’t reflect your competence;
- Have a high-pitched, sharp or shrill voice that often makes others think that you are angry;
- Speak too fast and remind yourself constantly to slow down but that hasn’t worked;
- Experience a sore throat or hoarseness after speaking for a few hours;
- Don’t have the so-called bass sound;
- Are often asked to repeat yourself because your voice lacks clarity;
- Speak with a monotonous voice that you often are afraid of losing your audience.
The goal is to develop a voice that commands attention and respect and a voice that reflects who you truly are.
A full voice is not about a better-sounding tone or crisper pronunciation. It is a voice that is projected with your full body, sounds rich, takes no effort and does not strain your vocal cords or throat.
You may have heard of Morgan Freeman. His voice is a great example of how a full voice sounds like, authoritative yet pleasant and relaxed. A female example of someone with a full voice would be Louise Hay, who speaks with a voice that is rich, warm and authentic. A full voice is achieved not just from the techniques, e.g. breathing techniques. It is developed with both step-by-step physical processes and the enrichment of your inner self, your personal development.
My mission is to bring back the lost power of voice.
My name is Cynthia Zhai. Over the past 8 years, I have worked with clients from 38 countries across 5 continents, ranging from all industries and all walks of life. I witnessed the transformation, not only in their voices, but also in the way they felt about themselves. Through this experience, I've developed a proven process that has helped many professionals build up their confidence and enhance their influence through the power of the voice.
Voice has been marginalized since the rise of technologies that made human beings write more than speaking. Voice as a channel of expression of ideas, emotions and individual identity has been overlooked. More importantly, voice as a tool to transforming our lives has been forgotten.
It is my mission to bring back the lost power of voice in our world and have everyone realize and experience the transformational power of their voices. I hope you'll not only discover the power in your voice, but also be one of the messengers who pass on the legacy of the human voice.

Your patience with my 82 years has been remarkable... My recordings... have improved tremendously. Dear Cynthia, Thank you for coaching an old codger like me to speak better by breathing better. Your patience with my 82 years is remarkable, your skill, undoubted and your humor, enchanting. You are a clever and excellent teacher. As a Terrific Mentor U don't say that often! I am being very good and breathing as you taught me. My recordings of my Terrific Mentors International Daily Paradox articles have improved tremendously.
The fundamental changes that I had experienced is on the way that I breathe and project my voice. Cynthia had also shared many tips on how to conduct presentation and make my presence felt. In my personal life, I felt that the other parties are more engaged with me during conversation. This is possible because of expressing the meaning of the words with feeling. In my professional life, the skill that I had learned from Cynthia is definite helpful in my presentation. I was just hoping that I had started this course earlier. Cynthia is an excellent voice and presentation coach. She listened to my needs and provides effective solutions and coaching. She is patient and helpful. Thus far, the best personal trainer that I had engaged. Thanks Cynthia.
Cynthia is very professional and communicates well. Her voice control is astounding. The sessions equipped me with the ability to calm down during hectic moments. It raised my awareness of how to relax and focus on breathing correctly and effectively, realizing to master simple technique of breathing all the way to and from the abdomen is ever so challenging.
Cynthia is able to identify my areas of improvement. She is patient to guide me through the sessions and have me see the improvement I wanted. I can feel the voice after the sessions is more powerful and gave me a sense of higher confidence in leading people.
Cynthia is able to explain very clearly & calmly what is needed to improve on my breath. Two things became quite evident to me throughout the sessions: 1) the importance of your breathing technique on how you feel; 2) How easy it is to make significant progress in improving my breathing technique with Cynthia’s guidance. Everyone who agrees that the way we breathe has a major impact on how we feel and perform should consider the coaching with Cynthia.
Before working with Cynthia, my voice was soft – people often told me I was hard to hear and very quiet. I also felt my voice was flat and uninteresting. My voice evolved considerably through working with Cynthia – I learned proper breathing, resonance and intonation that has made my voice stronger and more interesting. I can now present to larger groups without a microphone. I am very happy with my progress and would strongly recommend Cynthia as a voice coach.
It is my pleasure to highly recommend Ms Cynthia Zhai as a professional Voice Coach. As an experienced presenter myself, I continue to look to improve on my presenting skills, and Cynthia’s hands on coaching has started me on the journey to develop a true Full Voice both in presentations, work situations and social occasions. She is in my own opinion, one of the most engaging and insightful presenters I’ve encountered, and anyone interested in learning effective presenting or communication skills should attend her courses or seminars.
I first met Cynthia a few years back and when she explained her work with voice it intrigued me but I was too sure of myself. I was certain that I didn’t need it. As time went by I realized that voice training was something I could benefit from in my professional life. Today, I am far away from having completed the work on my voice and so far I have gained bundles of positive results, not only for my ‘office hours’. Alongside with training myself to reach my full voice, I learned to slow down and actually listen. Listen to the world around me including myself. It brings quality into practically everything I do. I like to think of ‘slow’ as the new ‘fast’.
Voice training is a once-in-a-lifetime investment.
Just like learning how to ride a bicycle or swim, once you've developed a full voice, your voice will never sound the same again. The goal is to be confident and influential while being natural and authentic.
You don't need more communication techniques. You need a full voice that matches up to your capability, experience and the value you bring to the world.
