This Website

He has tried to make his website honest, straightforward and hopefully helpful. Ashley struggles with overly-busy and hard-sell websites, which is hopefully why this website is simple in its appearance and the content direct and genuine.

The page about is simply his journey into his career - it is like a narrative CV. It details the private and corporate coaching he has done, which includes the companies and industries he has worked in, his university and drama school teaching experience, as well as the work he has done in theatre, film, tv and radio.

The services he offer are described under the following headings - 'Voice and Speech Coaching', 'Accent Reduction', 'Elocution', 'Voice and Speech Coaching for Actors' and 'Accent and Dialect Coaching for Actors'. Each heading explains what this service is, who might benefit from it and the methods he employs.

The courses page details various online and group accent reduction courses currently available.

The associates page details information about his associate Paul Baston, who leads a number of the online accent reduction courses.

The client/student area is restricted for use by his clients and students.

His blog is continually updated with free advice, tips, exercises and information about relevant topics and news.

The contact page gives you his phone number, email address and the option to submit an enquiry through a request form. If you find anything about this site unhelpful, difficult to negotiate or incorrect, please let him know.
