AboutWho We Are
We believe communicating with credibility, impact, and influence is the number one skill in business today.
First, the Mechanics of communication – voice, eye contact, posture, listening, giving feedback – are important facets of effective communication. Our workshops and one-on-one coaching sessions help people change and polish the way they interact with others to improve engagement, enhance their presence and build trust.
Second, we provide tools and coaching to help people develop Messages that target the needs and interests of specific audiences; deliver clear ideas and information in a concise way; and incorporate specific actions to increase sales, build a strong public image and get results.
Third, we deal with Mindset – the attitude, belief, and perspective that drives our approach to communication. It can create the biggest barrier or breakthrough to successful communication and leadership. Self-awareness is the first step toward mastering one’s Mindset. The results of personality and strength assessments combined with customized coaching helps our clients shift the way they approach people and projects to improve effectiveness and productivity almost overnight.

Everyone agrees that knowing your content inside and out is critical regardless of your audience, right? What most people don’t often realize is the way you deliver it and your mindset underneath it is just as critical. Mastery of all three components is “king”. We’ve separated each component and listed corresponding solutions below them.
Communication is consistently ranked the #1 business skill for career advancement. Skilled communicators are better at influencing, motivating, managing, and consensus-building. They are also more likely to be hired or promoted. One distinction between written and spoken communication is profound: Spoken communication is a one-time shot. Although you can prepare to speak, but you can’t proofread what you’ve said after the fact.
A lucky few seem to have an “instinct” for speaking with impact and influence. The Speaker’s Choice is committed to developing that instinct in you and your organization . (We call that instinct “unconscious competence.”) Through the use of powerful, highly effective , time-tested interactive coaching, The Speaker’s Choice works with you to hone spoken communication skills that are commensurate with your subject area expertise.
