Practice these phrases using pauses and changing volume:
"People have made our company profitable"

"Never again will we be caught off guard by the
dissatisfaction of our customers"


"The key to increasing our share of the market is
innovation"
     Know how to use vocal inflection to change the meaning
and impact of different phrases. Use it in different ways.
Remember, it is not only what you say but the way that you say
it that counts. You can say things in a very blunt and direct
manner if you use the right inflection and tone of voice. See
how many different ways you can say these sentences:
"You can do it!"
"Congratulations, John!"
Or more negatively, "Youíre fired!".
Or try these variations:

"I didnít tell Susan, Peter is stupid."   Someone else must
have done so.
"I didnít tell Susan, Peter is stupid."   But I soon might
"I didnít tell Susan, Peter is stupid."   I only hinted it.
"I didnít tell Susan, Peter is stupid."   But I told Jackie.
"I didnít tell Susan, Peter is stupid."   I said John
"I didnít tell Susan, Peter is stupid."   But he certainly was.
"I didnít tell Susan, Peter is stupid."   Just that he is dumb.

(If you want to hear what "vocal variety" sounds like first hand,
listen to my audiocassette program. See p.243.)
