In ever-increasing numbers, corporations are realizing the benefits of corporate speech coaching. Our speech gurus work on clarity in speech, presentation techniques, building confidence, and other facets of successful corporate interaction. We offer several services specifically tailored to business needs. These corporate programs focus on enhancing the quality of the speaking voice, public speaking confidence and body language. In addition, we provide additional areas of training upon request. This invaluable training recognizes the uniqueness of each business as well as their individual needs and goals.
Our speech gurus can come to your corporation to work with a group of employees. Usually we conduct group sessions with less than 20 attendees. We find that a group atmosphere creates a supportive and encouraging environment as well as a space for accountability. Based on our visits and observations of your company's ideals and values as well as interacting with employees, we can ultimately develop a customized program for your corporation.
The length of accent reduction training (or modification) time needed varies according to the individual. If a person has a subtle accent and does not resist change then the process might be completed in just a few sessions. Under different circumstances, however, the training could extend to months – depending on the individual. When determining the necessary length of this type of training, plenty of factors come into play – urgency of the adjustment, amount of practice, and the student's level of comfort with the new sounds. Our goal is to make you feel confident with a Standard American Dialect as soon as possible but it takes time and patience.

Your Inner Voice & the Business World
Good business hinges on a person's ability for good self-expression. If your speeches, presentations, or your overall persona comes across as weak and lacking confidence, you will not attract business success. On the other side, if you portray a pleasant, energetic, knowledgeable, and confident personality then people tend to feel more comfortable in trusting you with greater responsibility. Basically, clarity in speaking gives you credibility. Learning how to improve speaking skills pays off - big time - in the short and long term. Even in large classes, our corporate speech coaches use a personalized approach to help you bring more of your personality into your corporate presence.
