How Is '5 Steps To Speaking Successfully' Different?

First, you'll benefit directly from a Business Communication Specialist with over twenty-eight years experience providing speech improvement training. Working together we'll help you develop winning techniques that will ensure better speech production, voice quality and understanding!

Second, we take a 'big picture' approach to communication. Most of the available programs teach only the basics of consonant and vowel sound pronunciation or building vocabulary. However, we don't believe that's enough.

Research indicates that for Asian speakers (the largest immigrant population in the United States) differences in speech rate (how fast or slow you speak), syllable stress and timing distract from speech intelligibility more than differences in the pronunciation of consonants and vowels.

Finally, our programs include unlimited follow up coaching to ensure a lifetime of 'Speaking Successfully'!
