As part of my Social Responsibility initiative, I am delivering complimentary presentations to Rotary International and other service clubs, titled:

Don’t depress your grandkids – give yourself a voiceLIFT

Let me elaborate on the presentation . . .

As people age, their voices can lose energy. They may speak more slowly. Fatigue may be heard in their voices. At times, their voices may be monotonous.

Unfortunately – in the same vein as we judge a book by its cover, we often first judge a person by how they look, and unwittingly, by how they sound. A tired, un-energetic, un-interesting voice loses attention – and yes – can be labelled unattractive. Upon hearing this voice, people may avoid interacting with a person, because of their ‘flat’ voice.

Leaving aside the effects on voice from physical disease, and from the physical effects of ageing – there are ways to energise a lifeless voice. Practical, energy injection techniques and ideas to make 55+ aged people sound younger – 10 years or more younger.

And that energy can make them more interesting to their partners, children, grandkids and friends – so much so, that these people can look forward to, and want to, spend time with them.

The injection of voice energy can make them more outgoing, and help them make friends more easily – so they reduce any loneliness+ they have, and increase their sociability.

My presentation Don’t depress your grandkids – give yourself a voiceLIFT can help 55+ aged people sound younger, and feel younger.

Here’s what I ask:

If you know of a service club, that would be interested in this presentation, please send them my contact details or email with the club’s contact details. Thanks.


Loneliness and social isolation in the United Kingdom

  • 17% of older people are in contact with family, friends and neighbours less than once a week and 11% are in contact less than once a month (Victor et al, 2003)
  • Over half (51%) of all people aged 75 and over live alone (ONS, 2010)
  • Two fifths of all older people (about 3.9 million) say the television is their main company (Age UK, 2014)
  • 63% of adults aged 52 or over who have been widowed, and 51% of the same group who are separated or divorced report feeling lonely some of the time or often (Beaumont, 2013)
