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).

Julie and Casey sit down with happiness expert Stephanie Harrison to talk the science, the soft, and the squishy of how we think about happiness . . . including where we get it wrong, and what to do about that.

  • We’ve been sold a bill of goods that if you're good enough and successful enough, you’ll be happy; however, trying to achieve ourselves out of being human actually hinders our happiness.
  • Discomfort and challenges are NOT proof that you’re not worthy of happiness — they are part of the human experience. YOU ARE GOOD ENOUGH FOR YOUR OWN HAPPINESS.
  • The old model of "achievement leads to happiness" actually leads to burnout. Burnout is not your fault. It is a collective problem that ultimately needs a collective solution 
An expert in well-being, Stephanie Harrison founded The New Happy based on her Masters thesis in Applied Positive Psychology at the University of Pennsylvania.

She has spent the last ten years studying happiness from an interdisciplinary perspective, incorporating perspectives from art, science, philosophy, religious/contemplative studies, and the humanities.

Her book, THE NEW HAPPY, is forthcoming from Penguin Random House.

Stephanie’s expertise has been featured in Architectural Digest, Brit+Co, Bustle, Design Milk, FastCompany, Forbes, Greatist, The Huffington Post, Paper, Shondaland, Tatler, Well+Good, and Verywell.

A regular keynote speaker, her past engagements have included Microsoft, LinkedIn, Degreed, Zendesk, Capital One, Juniper, Eventbrite, Create & Cultivate, and ServiceNow.

Prior to starting The New Happy, Stephanie led the well-being program and learning platform for Thrive Global, built a product marketing team that led launches for LinkedIn’s $4B human resources business, and consulted to Fortune 100 companies on their people and HR challenges at Deloitte. She also returned to teach as an instructor at Penn following her graduation.
