Here are some of the stories of our members

An investment bank gave a new Managing Director a 6-month program with Speak by Design as part of onboarding. Speak by Design helped the MD make a strong start and sign three on three new engagements. Speak by Design accelerated their comfort in how to represent the new company, build strong internal relationships quickly, and grow business immediately.
IT product company gave top sales people 6-months of support plus 6-months of access to on-demand coaching to help perfect their new business presentations. The company saw a 50% increase in win rate on new business presentations from those sales people over a 12 month period.
A management strategy firm gave an Associate Principal who was struggling a 6-month program to work on developing a few new strengths. The Associate Principal used the coaching to have a personal transformation and promote a new offering. He sailed his way to Partner at the next designation.
The top three leaders at a start up firm each enrolled in the 6-month program to work on how they spoke to investors. Some of their coaching time was used in joint rehearsals. Prior to the coaching, they were not getting any investors. After one month in the program, they saw a shift and secured investments from every conversation.


Members can cancel at any time by the 15th of the previous month. While we recommend a minimum of 4 months, that is not required.

Come to Speak by Design University for what you can learn and stay because of who you become.

Opportunity to accelerate my professional development
Virtual coaching has given me a unique opportunity to accelerate my professional development. The ability to reference the videos after the session created a significant step change in my learning. While in-person coaching can be a great experience, the recordings following a virtual session allowed me to truly internalize the learnings to get the most out of coaching. In addition, through virtual sessions I am also learning how to communicate virtually with others.

I wouldn't change a thing about the training, this was a very helpful class that I wish I had taken the training sooner. Michelle did an excellent job teaching us.

I’m grateful for how you have impacted my career
When I started with Speak by Design I had some goals around how I wanted this endeavor to impact my professional life, one being to have an impact on our industry. I started using many of the techniques Speak by Design introduced to me. During and after a couple of months of utilizing your communication approaches, I am pleased to say that I will be moving into the President-Elect position of our regional chapter.  I want to thank the Speak by Design team for giving me the tools to make something like this happen. I’m grateful for how you have impacted my career and look forward to future opportunities these methods will afford me.
