Julie Fogh and Casey Erin Clark, co-founders of Vital Voice Training, are excited to share "Voice (is)" - a podcast where they have conversations with people whose voices they love to dive into the good, the bad, and the messy of what makes your voice YOURS.

Expect actionable advice about public speaking, confidence, nerves, in-office communication, etc, as well as deeper discussions on what power looks (and sounds!) like, how to let go of perfectionism and use fear to your advantage, and how to show up as your authentic self in a world full of unconscious bias.

Vital Voice Training is a voice, public speaking, and communication coaching company founded to help clients communicate with savvy, charisma, and confidence. Whether you are giving a speech, leading a sales appointment or a brand new team, pitching your big idea for funding, or just finding the courage to make your voice heard, co-founders Julie Fogh and Casey Erin Clark’s extensive backgrounds in speech coaching and professional acting give them a unique perspective on what makes people want to listen. For the client, the result is your voice: amplified (not just louder).

  • As the Editor of Seventeen Magazine in the early 2000’s, Ann witnessed a sea change in what young women wanted to talk about — suddenly instead of advice about summer dating, they wanted advice about summer internships. It’s no surprise, really. Teen girls are natural innovators, and millennial women changed everything about how we work. (Watch Ann’s TED talk here.)
  • New power can’t just LOOK different (as in seeing more non-white, non-male people having it) . . . it must BE different. New power is diverse, transparent, inclusive, accountable, and collaborative. 
  • We all have a part to play in changing the “women just don’t support other women” narrative. Challenging our own beliefs about scarcity of opportunity and seeing other women as opportunities to learn and grow instead of a threat is a start. And, you have to show up for other people if you want them to show up for you.
  • Mini-lesson: Taking your time space is a power move.


Ann Shoket is a trailblazing senior media executive who has been a key architect in shaping the national conversation about ambition and success for women. 

She has brought two major young women’s media brands to number one across every category. And most recently, her media and events company, New Power Media, acquired, a pioneering digital community for high-impact women in media, technology and business. 

Shoket is the author of the widely-acclaimed book, The Big Life, which was hailed by The New York Times as “a guide for women in their 20s and 30s who are hungry for a job they love, a supportive network of friends, respect from their posses and partners who want all those things for them as badly as they do.” 

Shoket has been a consultant and a regular contributor for Good Morning America. She speaks for conferences and corporations including TEDx, SXSW, The Pennsylvania Women's Conference, Facebook, Microsoft, Avon and more. 

Forbes has named Shoket one of the “10 Most Powerful US Fashion Magazine Editors.” Folio: named her one of the “Top Women in Media”.
