It’s gonna be the first time we’ll have a theme for our event -> “Sound of Voice”. Our speakers this time will be:
David Corcoran – Founder of Resonant Personal Development. He will talk about resonant sound through effective speaking.
David is a coach for voice, improving your English language and presentation skills and other areas of personal development.
David combines his background in psychology and human resources with his background as a professional opera singer.
As a coach, trainer, speaker, and singer his most important asset is his voice which he has developed over many years. David is currently the president of the Vienna Toastmasters Club 551 and has obtained several levels of speaking and leadership competence through Toastmasters. Toastmasters is a worldwide network and platform in teaching people to become competent and comfortable in front of an audience.
Shane Ó Fearghail – Irish Singer-songwriter now based in Vienna. He will talk about hearing your own voice and following your passion.
On his arrival in Vienna (2014), Shane set up the Vienna Songwriting Circle, a networking writing circle that supports songwriters. His live platform “The Acoustic Room” showcases new as well as established songwriters to a listening audience. In 2016 along with colleagues from the VSC he introduced The Schottenfest. An Irish – Scottish festival that focuses on Gaelic Culture here in Austria. It was a resounding success and will run again in Nov 2017. His most recent project is setting up Fair Play Concerts – to support and develop live music in Austria and beyond. On a blank page – magic happens!
