Hi, I'm veteran voice actor Claire Fry. My talent is for connecting, persuading, and demanding attention with just my voice - and I teach people and teams how to do it at their work, too.

About Me

My belief is that the essentials of voice training for actors – training in quality, connection, authenticity and storytelling – should be taught to everyone in every profession where communication matters. My expertise as a vocal confidence coach is rooted in my ability to translate 20+ years of acting training into practical and immediate actions that will transform the way you speak - and are heard - in your workplace. Since launching my Vocal Confidence business I have taught workshops on those techniques for multiple Fortune 500 companies, GoogleArts and Stanford University. I also coach clients around the globe how to Zoom like a voice actor.

Speak with confidence and authority so that your message comes across as intended, every time.

"Working with you has been a phenomenal, life changing experience. I am so appreciative of all that I learned. Our lessons will have a lasting impact on my career and overall communication. Thank you!"

Sebastian Hubrich

Head of Technology, YNAB

"It's easier for me addressing different audiences now depending on what I want to convey. Being more aware of the mechanical aspects of my voice but also really thinking about who am I talking to is helpful."

Jessica Ko

Co-founder/CEO, Playbook

"I had 1:1 sessions with Claire to get ready for future speaking engagements and workshops, and to get over the fear of being on camera. I loved every minute of talking with her and learned so much. I'm now recommending her to anyone on my team. I think everyone can benefit from taking her lessons, especially these days we're constantly on video calls."
Team Training


How It Works.

Vocal Confidence training employs practical, hands-on techniques focused on sharpening presentation skills, projecting confidence, and forging connections through the voice. Topics addressed include: optimizing the vocal instrument, finding the ideal tone for  communications, improvisation, storytelling and mock presentations. Participants will walk away with a brand-new set of skills to bring out the best in their voices AND a renewed sense of confidence in their ability to express themselves with authority, intention, and authenticity.


  • Every training is customized for your team.

  • Popular workshops include: "Getting Heard: Women's Voices in the Workplace," "Video Calls, Real Connections" and "Hearing is Believing: Vocal Authenticity."

  • Trainings scale from lunch-and-learns to eight-week sessions, depending on resources available and desired outcomes.

  • Option to record and share with absent team members is available.

  • Extensive follow-up resources can include: access to micro-teaching videos, further exercises, 1:1s with select team members.

"The workshops were engaging, high-energy and practical, particularly for our customer-facing teams that spend hours upon hours per day on Zoom.

Why Vocal Confidence?

What is a voice actor doing speaking for audiences of HR professionals, staff scientists, product managers, pharmaceutical reps...?
Because professionals from every field can learn and benefit from an entertaining, engaging and thought-provoking talk on how and why we use our voices at the workplace and in the world. 


Popular talks include:

  • Hearing Is Believing: Vocal Authenticity

  • Video Calls, Real Connections

  • Getting Heard: Women's Voices in the Workplace

  • Mastering Powerful Presenting

  • Zoom Like A Voice Actor

"The 1:1s were a perfect balance of concepts and practical experience. The meetings were very conversational and engaging. Claire is so great at what she does and always communicates with empathy. I always felt like I left the meeting with new learnings that I could directly apply to my job. It was the best 4 hours I have spent on a professional development exercise."
