What does power sound like? Loud? Brash? Masculine?

Here's the truth: if you're a woman, a person of colour, an immigrant or queer, there's often dissonance between how you speak and how we think powerful people sound, i.e. the wealthy white men who have historically set the standard.

In this witty and warm guide, speech expert Samara Bay, who has worked with the likes of Gal Gadot, Penélope Cruz and Terry Crews, as well as global leaders in business and politics, offers a new approach to asserting your power in all areas of life.

Permission to Speak is packed with expert tips and easy-to-follow exercises, demonstrating that you don't have to speak like the status quo to be taken seriously.
