DIARY: Hmmm ... maybe it isn’t my breath

Have you noticed that potential clients don’t seem to listen to your pitches, journalists aren’t returning your calls and even your personal assistant is ignoring you? Maybe you’re about to be fired, but perhaps there’s another reason.

Self-proclaimed voice expert Jeffrey Jacobi can help you. Jacobi’s new

book, How to Say It with Your Voice, explains ’how your voice is your

single most important business communication tool.’



Just as a good voice can convey confidence and trust, a ’problem voice’

can make you seem insecure, weak, unpleasant, boring, crude - even

dishonest, according to Jacobi. We also hear that problem voices in your

head can make you slice and dice relatives with a chainsaw, but that’s

not covered in the book.



Jacobi also offers to provide you with an evaluation of your ’Voice

Quotient.’ Our reporter achieved a ’superior’ voice grade, and promptly

left to do dot-com radio commercials.
