Your voice is the gateway to communication. First impressions are often formed with your first word.  Good vocal quality is important for all communication, whether you are speaking one to one, in a small group, on the telephone, or presenting in front of a large group.  Make a good first impression.   Optimize your communication potential by improving your voice!

This specialist overview will introduce the topic to people interested in technical writing and provide a refresher on the basics for experienced staff.
