What Clients Are Saying...
1.Irina, Business Consulting Firm | Leadership Communication Training

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.

11.  Adam’s Parents | Graduation Speech Preparation

Thanks, for giving Adam the confidence and poise to give a memorable speech.  You would have thought he had been making speeches for years.  

Michelle – you may not have been at Adam’s actual graduation, but you certainly were in all our minds as we watched Adam do an outstanding job.  You are amazing and I give you so much credit, and thanks, for giving him the confidence and poise to give a memorable speech.  You would have thought he had been making speeches for years.  Adam told me how much he liked working with you, and all the help you gave him, and it was clearly evident Tuesday morning.  He did knock it out of the park and our entire family is grateful.

12. Salil, Business Consulting Firm | Leadership Communication 

I would recommend Speak by Design, without reservation, to anyone

Mariann is fantastic - knowledgeable, constitutive feedback, caring, prepared, customized. Speak by Design University and Framework-Stephanie’s lectures and coaching is amazing - such a pro. You guys are pros and care. More than just communications coaching - good business advice and mindset work. I would recommend Speak by Design, without reservation, to anyone

13. Ashley,  Healthcare Organization  | Leadership Communication 

Good balance to keep me engaged

I enjoyed the entire session - the mix of prepared content and exercises was a good balance to keep me engaged. I thought I would feel extremely self-conscious throughout, but after the first exercise, that pretty quickly faded away. I am looking forward to the time to continue practicing some new habits that will not change overnight (presence, volume, not swiveling in my chair) while also customizing the content toward some of my biggest opportunities for growth.

14. Felipe, Healthcare Industry Leader  | Leadership Communication 

Coaching skills were outstanding!
Kat was great, she has good knowledge of social and emotional intelligence, her coaching skills were outstanding. I've worked with Speak by Design about 8 years ago, and I was pleased to see how much the company evolved between my first and second interaction.

All valuable! This was a great use of time!
There were too many items to pick the best part of the training - all valuable. I was apprehensive at first on this subject matter, but this was a great use of time. For a 3 hr. experience, it was very helpful. I would love to see how it would be even more effective with more time or a part 2 class

 I’m grateful for how you have impacted my career and look forward to future opportunities these methods will afford me.
 
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 you SBD 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.

I totally crushed it!
