Programs for Business Executives

Effective Presentations

Although I have no trouble speaking to a client, it’s different when I’m presenting at an industry conference. Since referrals come from other attorneys and professionals, I need to present myself and my firm as experts. Likewise, a beauty contest can be intimidating. What a difference between my performance before – and after – Verbal Communications Inc. coaching.”

Team Effectiveness

Team effectiveness can be tricky to achieve. In our company, two of our groups were at each other’s throats. Distrust was rampant, egos were bruised, and hastily spoken words had created barriers. Verbal Communications Inc. came into this costly quagmire and gave us a common language. Cooperation and respect was created out of chaos.  The best part is the results have lasted.  Thank you!”
