David Pope has spent the last 26 years immersed in all things voice. Beginning his career in London at the BBC, he has since worked in commercials, documentaries, TV series and radio, both in the UK and in Hong Kong. As a voice coach, producer, director and voiceover artist he understands the impact of the spoken word – not only what needs to be said, but how it must be delivered.
As program architect and senior voice coach David teaches across all the Executive Voice Coaching programs, both 1-1 and in small groups. He uses his experience in the recording booth to deliver key vocal skills (volume, pace, projection, vocal tone, articulation, gravitas etc.) to executives who wish to build their vocal control and vocal impact, in order to enhance their executive presence. He works with high-grade microphones, headphones and both fixed and mobile recording equipment to deliver high-tech, high-touch experiential learning, either on-site in his recording studio or at the client’s office.
As a voice expert, David has written opinion columns for Campaign Asia , been featured on TVB’s Money Magazine , the HKTDC’s British Entrepreneurs series, and interviewed by HR Magazine . He has been a guest speaker for The Women’s Foundation and guest judge on RTHK’s play writers competition Songbirds , and the British Council’s HK Young Journalists competition.
