Effective communication skills are essential for success in business
and in life. My background is both in business/professional contexts and academia.
My clients include both students, executives and professionals from Citigroup, North Shore LIJ, Columbia Presbyterian, NYU Dental, Hedge funds, capital management companies, JP Morgan Chase, Stern School of Management, Columbia Business School, Microsoft, accounting
firms, fashion industry, retail and other Fortune 1000 companies. They know the value of excellent language
and communication skills. You'll become more influential and have greater respect.
language is one of the most complex languages to master. And, if it happens not to be your native tongue, other challenges may arise.
Stage fright or the fear of public speaking
can prevent you from performing your best and could potentially limit your academic and professional growth.
The wonderful news is that I can help you overcome these challenges and create a whole new realm of possibilities for you!
Having spent several years as a professional speech communications professor, I will work with you, coach you, and help you overcome any apprehension that prevents you from becoming an effective public communicator. As we work together, you will become eloquent, fluent, conversational and assertive in front of an audience.
A job or college interview is another situation where it is essential to confidently convey your achievements and commitments. Additionally, it is mission critical to develop a robust resume that will provide you with clear advantages over other candidates. In other words, it's not just what you say, but how you say it! People judge you by the words you use and how you use them!
As your coach and mentor, I will assist you in business communications, which includes ESL
and native English professional speech. You will also learn how to write effective, and concise business correspondence to clients, employees, management, and the general public.
Perhaps best of all, you will have traded in that old feeling of anxiety for an enhanced sense of self-esteem, confidence, and swagger!
So, what is my professional background? I have a Masters degree in Speech from Emerson College. I also studied graduate level Administration and Management at Harvard.
