Harness the power of operatic performance

This workshop is for women who want to impact and influence, who want to break the glass ceiling and let their voices be heard in male dominating environment. It is created to empower women in leadership positions, to  find their inner voices and strength their powerful delivery.

A trained voice of an Opera singer has an authority that transmits a sense of strength. I sing without a microphone, with my entire body. The sound that I produce comes from my entire heart, my soul, my head and from the gut. I move my audience to tears, make them laugh; I take them on a journey and capture their imagination. You can do it too’  Ilona Domnich

 ‘Master self and impact others’ workshop is all about human expression through the voice. It is a challenging and creative exploration of self in an empathetic, positive and encouraging atmosphere.

I want to share my skill and experience with women to inspire and give them tools to deliver powerfully in their jobs and in lives. I want to help women to find their inner voices and for their actual voices to be free, empowered and to be heard.



  1. Body/breath connection
  2. Head/heart connection

‘ I have developed my inner trust, built inner confidence based on true connection with myself. When I sing, instead of forcing and trying to impress or please, I am inviting my audience into my world. By sharing my experience and the secrets of my craft, through exercises, games and mindful vocal and stage work I can help a presenter to capture people hearts, reach their feelings and emotions – thus creating strong and lasting impact. ‘ Ilona Domnich

       What will we do and how: 

  1. You will learn how to manage self – master the nerves, you will get tools on how to tame stage freight, how to enhance presence and find the voice and unleash its power.

2. You will discover the secrets of stage craft, body language, facial expressions and learn how to sense when it is too little or too much.

3. Through the acting games and exercises you will develop focus, concentration, listening skills, creating an easy flowing, fully connected, passionate and engaging performance, taking you audience on a journey with you and much more.

In my workshops I concentrate on developing two important dimensions:

mastering/connect to the self and impacting/connect to others.

I harness the power of the opera singer’s training to achieve a truthful way of communicating. Through vocal, acting and movement exercises and games you will develop trust and focus the mind, you will learn vocal techniques to empower the voice projection and the unleash the powers of human expression, you will learn to connect to your inner self; you will start trusting your voice, and connect with each other. This mindful work sends ripples though your entire life, personal or professional and will inspire the woman’s voice to sound free.
