Private Coaching - Foreign and Regional Accent Modification

Are you concerned your accented speech patterns are holding you back? 

Detectable accented speech patterns are rarely the issue.  Speech clarity and formal speech are hallmark characteristics of professional level speech. 

How it works: Participants engage in a speech analysis to assess sound pronunciation accuracy, grammar, syntax, intonation, and related attributes of speech.  A personalized detailed speech analysis report will outline individual speech and voice strengths and areas of need.  Coaching is designed to target the most prominent speech errors first to ensure the client experiences a noticeable improvement in the shortest amount of time possible.

How long does it take: Participants can make significant gains in their speech intelligibility in as little as 3 hours of coaching with daily practice.  

Who benefits from coaching:  Entrepreneurs, sales, scientists, physicians, engineers, radio and TV broadcasters and professional public speakers whose foreign accented speech patterns or regional dialect affect their ability to speak American English clearly and correctly.

Learn at Lunch Workshop - Overcome Public Speaking Fear and Performance Anxiety

Speaking in front of an audience is crippling.

Symptoms of public speaking fear, including rapid heart rate, shallow breathing, sweating, shaky voice, and forgetfulness, create tension all over the body.  The muscle tension generated by the fight or flight response makes it difficult to speak with optimal vocal quality.  Your body language is also affected by nerves, fear, and anxiety.

Training Outcomes

  • Understand why we get nervous and how to productively manage the symptoms.
  • Learn how to properly prepare for presentations and public speaking events.
  • Practice voice techniques and vocal warm-ups used by actors and stage performers.
  • Develop a series of body movement exercises to help relieve tension and free the voice for public performances.

“Whether nervous or have anxiety before speaking, the techniques I learned and the information in this class are life-changing. I am not exaggerating. The information from this class allowed me to understand and counter fear I have of speaking with in front of senior leadership and while on large conference calls. Knowledge is power. I recommend this class to anyone wanting to conquer the fear you have when speaking or giving speeches. “ -Senior Project Manager, Enterprise Infrastructure Services Division
