Elice, VP of Marketing, Commercial Insurance
I wanted to thank you for your guidance in my meeting preparation.  Yesterday I presented my marketing plan for our new digital marketplace.  Not only did it go well, but I also got the full funding I requested with no pushback.  Today I just finished my meeting with the new head of claims and covered the tactical part of what we needed to accom...

Thank you again for the time today – once again, I found our session quite helpful and productive.  I also appreciate the helpful guidance and reminders and will incorporate them into my delivery with client and coworker interaction going forward.

Speak by Design has changed my mindset and behaviors toward all communication. It also equipped me with tactical skills for becoming a more effective communicator. I feel confident to communicate difficult messages to both clients and team members.

My coach gave me great advice which helped me to achieve my communication goals.  The coaching exceeded my expectations.  Overall, it will enable me to speak clearly and think before I speak.  Thank you for your great efforts and expertise.  The coaching sessions were everything I needed and very helpful in enhancing my current role.
Victor, Global Management Strategy Firm
I just wanted to share a brief success story, I was able to craft an email outlining & announcing the hiring need, discussing it on the same day & right away getting the approval and now moving forward with the next steps, all in about 2 days. That to me speaks to the impact of a coaching session!
Rich, Chief Product Officer
When I started with Speak by Design, one of my goals was to have an impact on our industry by becoming more active in our industry association (Insights Association).  After a couple of months of leaning in on my effort, while utilizing your communication approaches, I am pleased to say that I will be moving into the President-Elect position.  I...

I am sure that after the program I will be a different person and much better at communicating to others. Before I knew it was important, but now I can say it is crucial.

Kim, Bank Executive
After I finished my presentation yesterday the words that came into my mind were “nailed it!”  A few people asked if I was a professional speaker?  Ha!  I said, “no, but I work with a professional coach!”  SBD helped me feel confident and Michelle gave me feedback in the way I like to receive it!  I look forward to my next presentation and will ...

Adam, Business Consulting Firm
The program was designed around my goals. Every couple of weeks, we recalibrated to ensure the sessions were consistent with where I wanted to grow. Michelle let me sit in the driver’s seat — tailoring our sessions to my broader goals and impromptu challenges. She understood from the beginning that authenticity was important to me and worked wit...

Alison,  Director of Development, Food Company
Our work in prepping for those vendor meetings was really helpful – I felt like I totally crushed it in getting them excited about the company/opportunity. The prep work and practice was really necessary and helped me figure out how to frame things concisely.
Rich, Chief Product Officer
Today was a difficult day, I had my last class with one of the best professional coaches I have ever met.  The sessions were thoughtful, very productive and super helpful for that moment/use case as well as long-term.  Kat literally made me a better professional.  While I enjoyed the whole SBD experience, the 1/1 coaching is another level of tra...

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 movin...

Dan, Admissions Services
The presentations have gone really well. I felt really good about getting those key messages out and very confident in my answers. In all, I kept finding myself continuously referring to a lot of your advice, talking slower, being more intentional with my hands, keeping answers to a core message with two supporting points, and always thinking ab...

Justin, Project Manager
My coach is very approachable and always asked if there were ways to customize our sessions based on upcoming projects or meetings. I would work with SBD again.
Nancy, Energy Professional
I've booked my private coaching session with Regina and had the first session with her on Wednesday. It was great. I already feel a little more confident after the first session with her.
Marc, Healthcare Industry Leader
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
Juan, Business Consulting Firm
I followed my Coach’s instructions for a coaching meeting today with a client. I was excited to motivate them and noted some big changes in the conversation with the audience. Can’t wait to apply different approaches in the conversations.
Abby, Healthcare Industry Leader
I liked it was in a small group. It made me feel more comfortable.
