The Brain-Voice Connection™ story
While working as a singing coach in New York City, Anna was approached one day by a Wall Street businessman. He told her he was getting talked over in meetings; he was concerned about his career prospects. Could she help him?
Anna took up the challenge. She applied her singing techniques, augmented with her many years of study around neuroscience research on how the brain influences the voice. She helped her client understand how to project his voice, and taught him voice techniques that made him more confident about speaking out during meetings. As a result, he began contributing more during meetings, and was promoted to the next level. This success provided the ‘Aha!’ moment for the methodology that became The Brain-Voice Connection™.
The Brain-Voice Connection team
Partner and Founder
Anna’s rich and varied background includes working as a stockbroker at Smith Barney, a professional singing and voice-training coaching, and performing in Off- and Off-Off Broadway shows. Together this provided a solid foundation for working with and training corporate executives, employees, salespeople and those who speak to the media.
In 1995, she founded the communications coaching business, Voice Success. Anna later moved to Seattle and in 2003, relaunched her business as The Brain-Voice Connection™.
