Matthew Collins is a voice coach working with clients who range from prisoners and business people to members of the Women’s Institute.
At the moment he’s running online School Shakespeare and School Voice Workshops (most recently for King’s Worcester – March 2021), Corporate Voice Workshops and online Community Poetry-Speaking sessions.
On Saturday 10th April 2021 he’s running an online Speaking Shakespeare workshop on Macbeth (open to anyone – see below).
For ten years Matthew was ‘Special Assignments Man’ on BBC TV’s The Travel Show. He also presented on Wogan, Open Air, This Morning, Well Worth A Visit… And (not his finest moment) an Anglia TV quiz show. He brought up two sons alone, wrote books and articles about their travails and travels, and ran prison Fathers Workshops.
Today, the work he most loves is encouraging non-thespians to explore their voices by going beyond their vocal comfort zones. And to encourage everyone to delight in speaking great words. In public or in private – whether by delivering a speech or presentation; exploring the power of Shakespeare’s language; speaking a poem; or reading the words of a great story aloud.
