We all have to speak in public sometimes, whether it’s answering a question in front of the class, addressing an audience, or even just meeting someone new, and it can be a bit scary! But it doesn’t need to be. BAFTA-nominated voice artist Lizzie Waterworth – the voice of Horrid Henry – has written a fun new book to help children feel confident about talking to people, and is bringing all her tips and tricks from How to Talk So People Will Listen to MK Lit Fest.
Lizzie's book has lots of hints from professional voice artists and public figures, including Stephen Fry and Ben Shires, along with takeaways from her own experiences. From how to combat nerves to the benefits of smiling and the power of eye contact, this interactive, entertaining event will encourage children to take control of their voices and boost their confidence in speaking out – while creating (and voicing) their own cartoon character along the way!
