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 master executive coach Katia Verresen of KVA Leadership to talk all about leadership, your zone of genius, how "optimizing" can be related more to fear and anxiety than productivity, and most importantly all about the power of PLAY.


  • Your "zone of genius" is your super power.  It needs to be nurtured with awareness, noticing, and codification.
  • Being generous and generative is the answer to the zero sum power game of "I win, you lose".
  • Fight or flight is diametrically opposed to your zone of genius.  Soothing your nervous system is critical to your best thinking.
  • Good leadership inspires rather than commands followers.
  • The shadow side of "Optimization" is deep dissatisfaction
  • And bonus:  What being an gen x'er can teach us about boredom, and why during Covid -19 it can be your friend. 
Katia Verresen coaches C-suite executives and rising stars from the earliest startups to Fortune 100 companies. Her passion is to help ambitious leaders achieve their full human potential. Her practice is both in Silicon Valley and NYC with clients such as Amazon, Facebook, Figma, Spotify, Stanford Business School, Thrive Capital
