For over forty years Speakeasy has provided personal growth, communication development and consulting services to some of the most influential business leaders in the world.
There is a unifying philosophy that underpins everything the company does. It’s a belief that our focus must always remain on the individual — that everything that individual needs to be a great communicator already exists within them. Our work is drawing out the best of who that person is.
You know that powerful communication skills are essential to your success. That’s how you make things happen. It’s how you get results, how you move markets... and how you motivate both your prospects and your staff. It’s critical to effective leadership – to transferring knowledge and vision, inspiring others, and ultimately… driving the bottom line.
The truth is, it takes more than public speaking training or presentation skills to become a great communicator. It takes real work… not in changing who you are, but in becoming more of who you are. It’s a journey that begins when you get better connected to who you are and how the world sees you when you communicate, and quickly moves to your openness to honestly connecting with others. Eventually you move beyond presentations and public speaking and learn to build trust – the foundation of effective leadership in today’s world.
Speakeasy's individually-driven development curriculums, developed over almost forty years or global leadership in the communication training industry, are designed to open you up to the real possibilities that exist for you in the world of powerful connection-based communication.
How you deliver a message is every bit as important as the message content ‰ÛÓ and a smooth, polished delivery is no substitute for believability! That‰Ûªs exactly where Speakeasy has helped me be more effective in understanding, and speaking to the needs of my audience. The exercises and colleague critiques are done in a very supportive, non-threatening way that really help you work on your individual needs. The basic learning‰Ûªs are still effective in my day to day communications ‰ÛÓ they really help me bring ‰ÛÏmyself‰Û to any communications setting.
I‰Ûªve taken other programs, and this is one I believe in strongly. The coaching and the practice were great. I‰Ûªve seen a marked improvement in my communication skills ‰ÛÓ but more importantly I‰Ûªve felt a real increase in my confidence. I left knowing what to do and really believing that I could do it.
Our team had some very special needs when it came to planning our presentations and this process gave us all the tools we needed to address them. The way it keeps us focused, both as individuals and as a group, has really had an impact. And the basic concepts go even further ‰ÛÓ they really help keep us aligned as a team. We‰Ûªre much more consistent across all of our communication.
