Co-Founder & Head Coach
Author – English Pronunciation Roadmap
Hi, my name's Ashley Howard.
Let me introduce myself.
As a voice coach, I've had the privilege of coaching people from over 98 countries to achieve clear speech and pronunciation.
These include leading IT scientists, carpenters, lawyers, CEOs and Senior Executives, plumbers, consultants & doctors, politicians, public speakers, actors,
... the list goes on.
But I get most excited about those that I’ve helped to become self-assured and able to have a conversation where they are understood first time and the focus is on content instead of accent.
" It is with no hesitation that I recommend Ashley as a voice coach.”
Before I began writing English Pronunciation Roadmap , I completed an MA in Voice Studies at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama and a further two years training with world-renowned voice coach Kristin Linklater, author of Freeing the Natural Voice (2006).
I've spent over 10 years helping thousands of people overcome their speech & pronunciation challenges.
I deliver coaching solutions to individuals and companies nationally and internationally, in both the public and private sectors.
This includes those in media, government, law, academia, medicine, advertising, marketing and consultancy.
" I really appreciated Ashley’s patience, professionalism and his work method ... I would definitely recommend Ashley as a coach."
"Within 5 minutes of meeting Ashley he gave me the self belief that I would and could become an authentic public speaker. Working with him was an absolute life changer for me on a personal level and my business venture. He gave me the tools to find the courage within me to believe in myself, something I hadn’t done for several decades. His expertise and passion for his work shines through at every level."
Just some of the companies and organisations I've worked with:
I'm very happy with your materials. I listen two-three times, I repeat after you and I try to remember the rules. Your lessons help me a lot.Thank you very much indeed, I'm more confident now.
" The material is unique and very useful... the tips on tongue position and lips were easy, intuitive to learn and I feel they have made a massive difference... I feel my confidence whilst speaking has improved enormously... I’m impressed!"

Frequently Asked Questions
Still on the fence?
Here are answers to some of the most commonly-asked questions:
Alex Langenbach, who is a very experienced EPR Certified Coach.
We first met Alex back in 2016, and were extremely impressed with his knowledge and well-tuned ear. It wasn't long before we knew we wanted him on the EPR team.
Alex will be taking on all new Assessments & Consultations.
What's his background?
Along with being a fully qualified & experienced teacher, Alex recently completed the well-respected MA Voice Studies course from the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama in London.
He's an experienced voice coach in his own right, and we have awarded him status as an EPR Certified Coach.
So you're certainly in safe hands!
Alex will be able to hear exactly what you're doing in your pronunciation that's different to native speakers.
He'll point out the areas that are most crucial, and will guide you on how to change these speech habits.
If you are expecting an ‘immediate transformation’ – which is what some online courses try to sell you – you need to look elsewhere. I’m afraid you won’t find a genuine product that can reprogram your brain with no effort. Changing your accent takes time and focus, but the material is straight-forward, thorough and holds your hand all the way through.
This is a great question. The British Isles, and further afield in other English-speaking countries, have a beautiful array of different accents to choose from. What is explored in this programme is what is known as Standard British pronunciation. It’s most commonly heard in the South of England and is sometimes known as Received Pronunciation.
At various points on your ‘Roadmap’, there is the ability to choose from different speech patterns within the ‘Standard British English’ spectrum. Some are more commonly-spoken and are features of relaxed speech, and others can be chosen for a more ‘muscular’, ‘formal’ or ‘professional’ style of speaking.The beauty of it is that once you know the options you can make an informed choice in your speech habits – and English Pronunciation Roadmap enables you to do this.
This book is designed to help anyone, for whatever reason, who wants to learn a ‘Standard’ British English accent – also known as RP (see above), for example, if:
– You speak English as a second language, and simply want to be clearer and better understood
– You teach English as a second language
– You’re a fellow voice coach, seeking a resource to help your students with their pronunciation and intonation.
– You’re native English speaker with a regional accent who wants to soften their own
– You might even be an actor who needs to learn a standard British accent for an audition or part.
It certainly could be – and I haven’t even tried yet, so who knows! But I much prefer the ability to deliver my system without any restrictions: whether it’s how many pages I must limit myself to … or how many hours of audio … or whether I can use coloured signposts to guide each learner … or how detailed I can be in explaining each particular habit for each sound. With Edwin Publishing this has been possible.
Credibility tends to be identified by authenticity and experience. In learning, this couldn’t be more true.
I have years of one-to-one, hands-on, real-life experience, and testimonials showing the transformative nature of the work that I have developed along the way. Global, profiteering marketplaces don’t necessarily indicate credibility.
Not all influencial, impactful, interesting and useful stuff comes with the seal of approval from global, profit-oriented companies and institutions. And in fact, most of these types of learning resources are written by academics and edited to the point whereby they lose their human voice.
This has been a real labor of love, and its primary focus is to communicate with you on a human, everyday, real-life level – without confusing and unnecessary jargon, and with accessible, interesting, thorough language with coaching exercises tried and tested over many years.
We all lead really busy lives with all sorts of commitments. What most people are looking for is something that can fit in with their schedule, that they can either get really stuck into when they have the time, but which can also be bite-sized when they haven’t but still want to keep the momentum going.
I have worked tirelessly to achieve this by turning each learning point into a 15-30 min coaching session, indicated at the beginning of each section. Which means that you can pick it up when you have time, choose a section that fits in with the time you have, and come back when you’re next available.
Equally, you could ‘get stuck in’ and do three or four coaching sections and really capitalise on the time you have. It’s a simple, step-by-step learning companion which you can engage with at whatever level works for you.
Unlike most of these books whose publishers have distanced the author from their reader, you can choose to engage in a live dialogue with me via the Members’ Virtual Coach page, where I answer all extra questions you have on implementing the training.
OR you can post a question in the members-only Facebook group where you can reach out to EPR coaches (including myself) along with other members of our community, for any support you need.
And, unlike most learning resources, this has been written to feel like the next best thing to a face-to-face coaching session. No rock has been left unturned, and every identified pronunciation habit has its go-to exercise that has been tried and tested for years in my real-life coaching.
Also you’ll be receiving free articles and blog posts by email, and even some real face-to-face coaching should you choose.
Face-to-face coaching is best, but unlike most of those self-guide learning resources, this will feel like I’m right there with you, holding your hand and coaching you through every section. I use simple, direct language, examples and explanations to lead you step-by-step through each part. Plus, coaching is always an option, just drop me a line.
How do you know until you try?
Let me invite you to engage in this training for up to 60 days. And if you still decide it's not for you, just get in touch and you'll receive a 100% refund with no questions asked.
We wouldn’t dare do this guarantee if we weren’t completely confident in our ability to help you develop your speech.
That’s the great thing about the internet, you can search and compare the best deals and make a choice that works for you. Money is a big influence on decision making, but so is the broader experience and benefits being offered.
I’m confident that no other pack will guide you through your own habits as clearly and thoroughly as English Pronunciation Roadmap. Nor will it have the same resources and personalised help that I offer (see bonuses described above), or the ability to pair the pack with a personalised assessment to really get things moving quickly for you.
It’s true that some of these books have to be general because of their global audience. But not this one.
My experience privileges me with having heard of all the various habits and patterns amongst speakers who are interested in British English pronunciation. And so each sound and section in the book has clearly described and supported your specific habits and patterns – giving tried-and-tested, real coaching exercises to guide you in your journey. It has thorough practice pages for each sound, and sections with real life examples that help you to integrate the new habit into live speech.
