It's really good. It starts
with "we" and goes to "aw."
The "we" is high, the "aw" is low.
So you go, weeeaawww, weeeaawww.
Fantastic. Give yourselves
a round of applause.
Take a seat, thank you.
Next time you speak, do those in advance.
Now let me just put this
in context to close.
This is a serious point here.
This is where we are now, right?
We speak not very well
to people who simply aren't listening
in an environment that's all
about noise and bad acoustics.
I have talked about that on this stage
in different phases.
What would the world be like
if we were speaking powerfully
to people who were listening consciously
in environments which were
actually fit for purpose?
Or to make that a bit larger,
what would the world be like
if we were creating sound consciously
and consuming sound consciously
and designing all our environments
consciously for sound?
That would be a world
that does sound beautiful,
and one where understanding
would be the norm,
and that is an idea worth spreading.
Have you ever felt like you're talking, but nobody is listening? Here's Julian Treasure to help you fix that. As the sound expert demonstrates some useful vocal exercises and shares tips on how to speak with empathy, he offers his vision for a sonorous world of listening and understanding.
