"Alicia is an inspiring, supportive, and thoughtful coach. She leads her Public Speaking Bootcamp by example: with incredible poise and presence. She takes time to work with every individual in the class, so we all walked away with concrete suggestions and tips to put into action right away. This was truly an opportunity to learn from a master." - Karen Q

"I highly recommend Alicia Dara for voice coaching. She does not try to make women's voices lower or higher (and she gleefully goes against the common masculine-centered critique that women's voices are "too high"). She also teach[es] women strategies for holding vocal space for each other in meetings. Also: her "women's" workshops are inclusive of cis, trans, and queer women. I took her voice bootcamp for women tonight and will be going back for more." Kari Lerum, Associate Professor: Gender, Women & Sex

"There we were, a group of women knowing that we would have to step out of our comfort zones. I was so impressed with how Alicia handled this delicate situation. She was able to share such positive feedback, pinpointing each person’s vocal type and give not only amazing general group instruction but was able to benefit each individual according to their own strengths. Within such a short period of time I was able to see changes in everyone, including myself. We were sitting up a little taller, projecting a little louder, and even though we were all from different areas of the studio there seemed to be a feeling of camaraderie that will live on after this workshop." -Linda Hayashikawa, Microsoft Halo group
