The PSR Method Junior Course is an entirely new approach to communication skills training.
Without a technique (set of rules), we have to rely on our instinct. Have a look at the description from the Oxford Dictionary:
The innate aspect of behaviour that is unlearned.
In other words, 'guessing'. It may be an educated guess, but a guess nonetheless!
On the other hand, it describes technique as follows:
1. A set of specific rules which determine the degree of excellence.
2. The degree of skill or command of fundamentals exhibited in any performance.
The PSR Method changes speech patterns from instinct to technique.
It is a systematic process that teaches how to use the voice as a precision tool and enhances memory retention. It cannot be compared to any other communication training.
It is a powerful structured technique that has a permanent affect, so there is no doubt that the PSR Method is one of the most important tools we can learn.
Steve Hudson started with 3M Company and Xerox (London and Washington DC) as International Communications Trainer. Working in Washington, he trained politicians and became Communication Consultant for members of the Senate and many of the Fortune 500 companies. He soon realised that most salesmen and politicians were well trained in product knowledge, but many of them were poor communicators. It was obvious they needed a technique to be more positive and persuasive.
In order to find out more about using the voice professionally, he decided to train at the Royal National Theatre in London to become an actor.
During the next few years, he became a successful international voiceover, recording Fuji, Mitsubishi, Guinness, Gallo Wine, Old Spice, Martini, Superman and many others. He came close to real stardom when Cubby Broccoli was casting for the lead role in James Bond movies; Steve said he lost by an eyebrow (and a few million pounds) to Roger Moore.
Steve Hudson has won a number of awards for production and performance, including Best Radio commercial at the Hollywood Radio and Television Society for ‘Sound International’.
It has been taught for over 20 years, training Fortune 500 CEO's, BBC newscasters, call centre operators and many corporations including ING Bank, British Telecom, Carlsberg Tetley, and of course, those who want to earn extra money as a voiceover artist.
The Hudson Voice Technique has been accredited by the Law Society UK. We train lecturers at Oxford and Manchester Universities. We are official trainers at the Singapore Media Academy. We also train Bloomberg UTV and Malaysian National Broadcasters.
