We'll shift your speech from being heard to being remembered!

Public speaking, storytelling, vocal coaching and creative writing from the perspective of professional musicians

An artistic point of view on public speaking, performing, storytelling and creative writing.

The music in speech



Our aim is to shift good public speakers to great ones. Whether it is an elevator pitch, a team meeting, a keynote speech or any other form of public speaking, we don't believe there is one recipe for everyone to follow in order to blow their audience away. 

Great minds think, but don't necessarily speak alike; in the same way a song is only as moving as the one performing it, a speech is intertwined with the speaker's personal identity.

As professional artists with years of experience in the field of performing arts, we know exactly what it takes to be in the spotlight on stage to not only grab your audience’s full attention - but keep it. With an artistic perspective, we offer a different, eye-opening view on how to get your story across. We’ll shift your speech from being heard to being remembered.


"Let's talk about us" - Van Morrison

I really enjoyed the workshop.

What do other people think about the workshops of The Pitchshifters?

Martin Lambert

"My pitch has been shifted. I booked the 'tiger in a spotlight' class in English which unfortunately had some last minute cancellations which made it unviable to run, but Desiree offered me the chance of a 1:1 session instead; Great half-day and I effectively got a private class. Learned loads in a welcoming and caring atmosphere from a skilled, observant and friendly voice coach. Excellent, unusual fun."

Who are The Pitchshifters?

Courses & Trainings



We believe there are a lot of similarities between giving a concert and giving a speech: you want to make a lasting impression on your audience. There is the set of ground rules, skills and methods that lay the foundation; this goes for both artists and public speakers.

We don’t only want you to discover those tools; we want to help you use them in a way that suits you best. This means we will go in depth to improve your individual, personal storytelling or writing skills as well as your performance and the impact of your voice.

Our courses and trainings focus on emphasizing your own unique qualities, in order to make your story resonate with your audience as if it were a song they can sing along to.
