Presentation Skills & Reading

The PSR Method

BBC trainer Steve Hudson has created the world’s first technique to improve reading and speaking skills for students and children.

 Steve Hudson, International award-winning voiceover and communication skills trainer has, after 25 years in teaching, created a unique course for students, helping them to become more effective, confident and persuasive speakers. The PSR Method is an entirely new approach to communication skills training.

The course is based on the Hudson Voice Technique that is taught to aspiring voiceovers, actors, BBC and Sky presenters, international corporations, lecturers at Oxford and Manchester Universities, the Singapore Media Academy, and others. It has been accredited by the Law Society for Continued Professional Development Training.

Parents and teachers do a wonderful job of preparing the future generation, but is something missing?

A child will say their first word at about two years of age. They do this by mimicking their parents. From this point they will start to learn a vocabulary, language, accent, speed, and an intricate way of arranging words into a sentence.

They are gradually creating their unique speech pattern - it’s rather like their verbal DNA. However, when they start school, they will be influenced by less fortunate children who have picked up bad habits. This is why they need to be protected by a set of rules.

There is a lot of reading involved in the first years of life. On top of that, they have to read aloud in class quite early on. Then they have to make presentations, attend interviews and entry level tests for college or university, which is nerve racking − even for most adults.

And that is not all. When starting their working life, they have to face job and promotion interviews and competition is fierce.

Why the PSR Method?

Well, none of us was taught a communication technique at school because there wasn’t one, we were simply taught to string words together.

Without a set of rules to follow, we have to rely on our instinct.

Here’s the description of instinct from the Oxford Dictionary:

Instinct: The innate aspect of behaviour that is unlearned. In other words − 'guessing'. It may be an educated guess, but a guess nonetheless!

On the other hand, it describes technique as follows:

  1. A set of specific rules which determine the degree of excellence.
  2. The degree of skill or command of fundamentals exhibited in any performance.
The PSR Method changes speech patterns from instinct to technique.

Now there is a way students can learn to speak with more confidence and clarity and also start to enjoy reading more.

The PSR Method will have a major effect on their education and career.

The PSR Method is based on the Hudson Voice Technique. It is a life skill and guaranteed.

Benefits of the PSR Method for children and young adults:

  • Speaking at a slower rate – 73% of people speak too fast!
  • Helping to bring clarity where shyness or mumbling leads to inaudible speech.
  • Helping to improve confidence at speaking in front of others.
  • Improving retention when studying.
  • Increasing enjoyment when reading for leisure, because stories come to life with the PSR Method.
  • The possibility to record voiceovers – there is work for youngsters out there!

Michael & Ryan Lim

Like most parents, I’m most keen that my son Ryan gets the best opportunity to be successful. That means, whatever his chosen career, he must sound confident and persuasive and that’s why I chose Voice Master to help him. Here’s what Ryan had to say:

Hi, I'm Ryan Lim and I’m 12 years old. I am studying in an international school in Shanghai, China. I want to thank my dad for letting me learn from Mr. Steve Hudson because I found drastic improvements in my speech deliver as I grew more confident in my speech. I would recommend this course to anyone because I found it very helpful. Once again, thank you Mr. Steve Hudson. Watch the video 


Betty Redondo - Senior Broadcast Journalist, BBC
I've been a reporter for the BBC for 14 years. …within half an hour, I realised that the techniques taught would help improve my presentation skills too. To my shame, I realised I was guilty of many of the speech patterns that Steve found irritating and annoying, such as emphasising the wrong words or going up at the end of sentences; something that has become almost a template for all reporters and presenters to do!

I'm glad to say I have learnt the error of my ways and by using the Hudson Voice Technique. I am more confident and my reporting now sounds more intelligent, considered and comprehensible - and I'll be one BBC reporter not irritating Steve any longer!”

Many of the children we teach have learning difficulties and social problems, ranging from confidence, bullying and other 'labels' such as ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) and ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder), as well as, of course, dyslexia.

Some of the parents of our 'labelled' children have commented on how their children's behaviour, both at school and at home, has improved. The techniques that you taught us have been very useful when teaching our dyslexic children. It has helped their diction and projection enormously.


Dr. Sarah Davis MBChB
I would just like to let you know how the techniques I learnt on the course have helped me study for my Masters degree.

Through my own experience, it is assumed that reading is a given for the academic student. However, the Hudson Voice Technique can improve the efficiency with which you read and can help you to absorb and assimilate information more effectively in any area

Barbara King-Harman
My children enjoyed the course immensely and have used the techniques they learned to their advantage. It made them much more confident when facing an interviewing panel.

They’re all now employed and I think that they’ve achieved very well.
