Reduced Turnover

Improving an employee’s ability to communicate will help him or her be comfortable, confident and successful within your organization. And for managers, the ability to be clearly understood can also reduce the turnover of the people reporting to them.

Improved Profit

Growing a business, reducing costs, managing people, sharing new ideas, reducing turnover – all require effective communication.

Professional Development

Your company will be in a better position to meet future challenges and readily capitalize on the talent already within your organization when current employees achieve better business communication and speech clarity skills.

Presentation Skills and Voice Improvement

Many clients find it helpful to work one-on-one with a Speech-Language Pathologist to improve their speaking and presentation skills. This includes tone, voice projection and inflection. Since “voice” is something employees use every day, even small changes can have a powerful impact on their confidence and career.

“During my presentation, I wanted to make sure the audience felt my passion for the mission of Big Brothers Big Sisters. I worked with a Speech Pathologist on technique, breathing, speed, volume, visualization, and preparation. The presentation was a success.”

— Karen Brown, Executive Director, Big Brothers Big Sisters
