Pauline Graivier, founder of Verbal Communications Inc., has developed and taught her unique communications techniques to key executives and management of a wide variety of companies for many years. Financial and high tech consultants, attorneys, engineers, healthcare professionals and sales representatives have all benefited from her training. Since so many key leaders have found her work invaluable, senior and mid-level management are frequently required to work with Pauline on both interpersonal communications and presentation skills as part of their job responsibilities.
Her best-selling book, Speak the Language of Success, co-authored with her late business partner, Gloria Hoffman, was published in hardcover by G.P. Putnam’s Sons and in paperback by Berkeley Books. Translated into two different Chinese languages, it is published in Taiwan and mainland China.
In 2007, Pauline provided guest commentary on PBS’s national television program, Nightly Business Report.
From 2004 – 2008, she authored Words at Work, a weekly communications advice column for The Dallas Morning News, followed by Business Minds, published in the Sunday business section of The Dallas Morning News. Business Minds consisted of interviews re: unique challenges faced by leaders of various corporate and non-profit organizations – and how they met each challenge. Pauline and co-author, attorney Rob Hoffman, then analyzed techniques that were used, providing their readers an insightful “seat at the table.” Graivier’s Columns
