Anna Bernstein

The Brain-Voice ConnectionTM story

It all began while Anna Bernstein was working as a singing coach in New York City. She was approached by a Wall Street businessman in distress. Let’s call him David.

David confided in Anna that he was getting talked over in meetings. David had a lot to say, and was good at his job. However, because of this issue, he was concerned about his career prospects.

David asked for Anna’s help to increase his professional success.

Anna had a foundation in teaching singing. She augmented these voice techniques by studying neuroscience research. Anna expanded her teaching repertoire by exploring how our brain influences our voice. She applied her skills to David’s issue.

David’s confidence soared. With Anna’s help, he began speaking up in meetings more and more often. Not only did he speak up: when David spoke up, people listened.

David made an impact, captivated his audience, and was easily understood during meetings.

The meetings that used to cause David stress, now opened the door for him to get promoted.

David’s success provided Anna with an ‘Aha!’ moment of inspiration. First, she founded Voice Success in 1995. Over the next several years, Anna evolved her methodology into what it is today. In 2003 Anna moved to Seattle and launched her innovative and effective business.

Anna’s rich and varied background informs her approach with the variety of clients she helps every day.

In her previous life, Anna was a stockbroker at Smith Barney, so she knows all about pressure. Anna was a professional singing and voice-training coach, so she knows how to teach. Believe it or not, Anna was also on stage performing in Off Broadway shows, so she knows about overcoming butterflies, regaining poise, and sounding fantastic.

From entry-level employees, to salespeople, and all the way up to the top with corporate executives, Anna can help you command the presence you desire. And, for anyone who needs to speak to the media, look no further. Anna can prepare you to speak confidently and get to the point for more memorable sound-bites.

Enhance your presence. Increase your gravitas. SOUND LIKE A LEADER.
