From Brisbane to Vienna and around the globe, Dr Louise Mahler has given voice a good name. She combines the skills gained from 15 years of an international opera-singing career, with insider knowledge of the corporate world and academic study, to help people from all walks of life express themselves through voice — to find their true, full voice and use it!

In Resonate Dr Louise Mahler, voice coach extraordinaire, demonstrates that your mind, body and voice are inextricably linked. By approaching voice through an understanding of the whole body, Louise explains how your state of mind determines the way you hold your body, how your feelings resonate through your voice and how this sequence ultimately influences the efficacy of your communication. She explains the most common ways people react to nerves or excitement, as well as how your listeners respond to your voice and gestures – and how to use these to communicate more powerfully.

Whether you struggle to make a point at work or a school committee meeting; whether you’re going for the next big job or trying to improve your performance in the one you have; or you simply want better ways to communicate, Resonate will show you how to tune in to your own vocal intelligence, identify the physical and mental blocks that are holding you back, and reclaim your authentic voice. With its practical exercises, inspiring real-life stories and insightful tips, this book will unlock your confidence and show you how to make your message resonate.



The age of diversity and inclusion is upon us and the time has come to re-balance. Policy and procedures are in place, but beneath that are the actions and skills of new leaders and the need for their support. Men and women both have their role to play in what will be a new culture with different rules of engagement to gently disrupt the patriarchal constructs which stop us from being effective humans at work for the betterment of us all.

If it were easy we would have done it! In this session we will find the energy to break down the barriers through understanding, clever engagement with hard conversations and a giving of self without hesitation of fear. You will learn the 5 key skills to engagement, adopt a new linguistic agenda and build a profession feedback algorithm for change all within an interactive and fun environment that brings everyone to the party.

Invisibility is about bias that inspires poor behaviour on the part of all involved and whether we accept it or not is our choice and all of our responsibility to change. We need everyone out there to be seen, heard and felt with gusto, assertion and a positive mindset. So let’s get cracking.a
