There's a lot of networking involved working in Corporate Finance. I'm under the impression that one has to have a certain degree of "poshness" in order to have a successful career. I don't want to be just posh - I want to be really posh. Any tips?
What are your first impressions of someone who speaks with a posh accent?
Shove a large stick where the sun don't shine, and make the metaphor true.
I don't recommend turning all BBC-English if it means losing your own identity. Just make sure you pronounce words clearly and correctly, and speak fluently and with some civility in your tone, no drawling or using modern terms like "innit"
Seriously though, there's no need to try and turn into the Queen Mother or something (yes, I'm aware you're male but am being ironic)
but your getting there but using the word "one" in your sentences..lol - hope that helps? if not then forget about stereotyping and just be yourself.. be smart,intelligent and witty and you'll be top dog in no time.
Tbh I wouldn't want to be REALLY posh - I'm fairly posh but not extreme, and when I talk to someone who speaks the Queen's English I feel quite intimidated and inferior, and it's not attractive at all.
Now, a really hot accent is Northern Irish *swoons*
i always think lots of people dont know the meaning of posh, so what kinda posh do you want to be?
i get tonnes of people calling me posh because of my accent, i think im just well brought up and my accent is because of where i live partly?
i agree prenounce words properly, but dont overly do it. it will be obvious if you are just putting it on. oh and dont say like all the time!
