Leading from the Top;Leading by Example
Marking the closing of the recent National Entrepreneurs Convention at the ICC in Birmingham, Jane Maudsley, Founder and Managing Director of Little Voices, national performing arts training organisation, put on a spectacular performance of The Impossible Dream to inspire the 1500 strong audience of fellow business owners, teachers of performing arts and pupils to believe in the power of their Dreams – that sometimes seem impossible. Leading by example from the very top Jane is passionate about inspiring and training the Principals, Tutors and Pupils within Little Voices so that they grow in confidence and never feel that their dream is unreachable!
Mezzo Soprano, Jane commented: “For months I had to keep this performance quiet so that it would have a significant impact at the end of the two day convention and finally it happened. It is all about having a dream and then achieving it and the lyrics perfectly reflect this. Whether you are a performer, teacher or pupil it is so important to have those dreams and to remember that we are capable of realising them,” she said.
“I started out as a Mezzo Soprano but at that time did not think of myself as a business, I went on to teach and again slipped into a role that I was unhappy in within schools and teaching at home: again not thinking of myself as a business. I then sat down and pictured that dream and I am now realising it! I created Little Voices, a business which provides teachers with a vehicle to build a future, build a business, and teach the subject they love, successfully, both as a personal aspiration and a financial one. As artists, we rarely set out as business people, but we have to operate like a business whether we are a performer, a teacher or a pupil aspiring to the stage. This performance was the pinnacle for me, highlighting that you can have it all, perform, run a business and be yourself. My performance hopefully inspired our pupils, inspired our tutors and sent a strong message to all that if you want to receive training for your child or you want a successful business model then look no further than Little Voices.”
Before Jane went on stage, one of her Little Voices’ pupils Karen Wilkinson, said: “Thinking about you all day today so proud of my teacher performing and showing us all how it can be done.”
And one of the Little Voices’ Principals, Marie Blount from Fulham said:“You sang like a perfect angel at the convention last week. You’re incredible and what we have as an organisation is simply outstanding for all involved; pupils, tutors and Principals.”
Jane closed the ceremony for the Entrepreneurs Convention; a place where business people from across Europe discover what’s new and innovative in business right now and how they can build super successful businesses, during which the likes of Apple co founder Steve Wozniak, spoke on stage, to showcase how to head for your Impossible Dreams!

Following you dreams after Little Voices
Fiona Porritt tells us all about her journey post Little Voices!
Where are you now? (eg. College/uni/career and location in the world)
I have just completed my second year, studying Theatre at Brunel University in London.
After leaving school and completing my time at Little Voices I was accepted onto the Musical Theatre foundation course at The Oxford School of Drama. This was a natural progression from the training I had gained at Little Voices. I am currently an intern for Les Enfants Terribles Theatre Company. This has given me invaluable experience of the inner workings of a successful theatre company. I recently worked the Edinburgh Fringe Festival where I was stage manager on their production of ‘Dr Longitude’s Marvellous Imaginary Menagerie’.
What are your aspirations for the future?
I hope that I’m still young enough to not know exactly what I want to be when I grow up! However I know for sure that I’d like to work within theatre, preferably in a creative and collaborative environment.
When did you first join Little Voices?
When I started sixth form.
How do you think Little Voices has helped you – is there a direct correlation between what you are doing now and your attendance at Little Voices?
I definitely gained a lot of confidence in my ability. I was paired with girls in older years to me and this pushed me to work hard in lessons.
As I completed my Grade 8 I gained UCAS points. When applying for university courses it gave me something else to write about. I believe that universities look at these qualifications very positively, even if it isn’t a career within the arts you with to pursue.
What did you love about the lessons?
I loved working in partners and singing duets. I had experienced other acting and singing exams before but they had always been on my own. We were able to try out our ideas in what was a safe environment, and then see the rewards for our efforts in the exam results we achieved.
Can you give a one line/quote advice for those wishing to follow in your footsteps? (what should they absolutely do to reach their dreams?)
Take every opportunity that is given to you as any experience is valuable.
