Dr. Bill Haney’s Communication Pointers

With Business Professor Dr. Bill Haney

The term business communication comes close to being redundant, because in order to maintain a successful business you must practice compelling communication–from top to bottom, internally and externally, today and tomorrow.

Dr. Bill Haney, Professor of Business Administration at Brenau University, gave important business communication guidelines as my guest in “The Communication Corner,” the hour-long interview show I host weekly for WBCX, 89.1 FM, “The Voice of Brenau.” The program airs Tuesday at 9:00 a.m. ET, and appears as a re-broadcast Thursdays at 6:00 a.m.

During our high-energy conversation, Dr. Haney spoke about these topics, among others:

*”Brenau Business Briefs,” the program he hosts for WBCX
*Communication skills required for success in management
*Profile of today’s typical college student
*How higher education has become genuinely international
*How technology has helped instructors make learning more interesting and memorable
*Why business etiquette is essential for leadership roles
*Value of learning foreign languages
*How U.S. higher education compares to that of other countries

Linda Hensel: How to Make the Most of Your Voice

Voice Over Specialist Linda Hensel

With my Speech Coaching clients, I refer to the voice as “our spoken signature.” The parallel is obvious. Just as each of us has a distinctive written signature, your voice is uniquely yours. Remember when you called a former classmate you hadn’t talked with in fifteen years? Before you even identified yourself, your friend recognized you and called your name.

With our voice carrying such remarkable significance, we want to make maximum use of our vocal skills. That’s why I interviewed Linda Hensel of Stockbridge, Georgia. She serves as President of Adnil Productions, Inc.

Her reputation as a voice over producer has grown rapidly, and she has expanded her client list to cover a comprehensive array of industries.

In my interview with Linda in “The Communication Corner”–the program I host weekly for WBCX-FM, 89.1, “The Voice of Brenau”–we discussed how to make the most of your voice. Among our topics:

–Should we imitate great voices we admire?
–How does our normal conversational voice differ from our public speaking voice?
–What voice tips will help us in our job search?
–Overcoming a monotone voice
–What a rapid rate of speaking indicates
–Impact of regional accents
–Why don’t recordings of my voice sound like I think they should?
–Instructions for your company’s new receptionist
–Best guidelines for your voice mail
–Becoming a voice over professional
