When you speak English in the global workplace, are you struggling to communicate effectively? In presentations, meetings, interviews, etc.
Perhaps you're tired of hearing Huh? or Could you repeat that? when you speak English on the phone or in live meetings. And you don't know exactly how to adjust your speech in these moments.
Or you've tried working with an accent reduction self-study book or online program but after a few weeks, you find it difficult to stay motivated. This just wasn't working for you. You know that working with a speech coach, receiving focused individualized feedback, and having community support each step of the way would speed up the training process.
If you want to speak English with powerful confidence and be better understood for any of these reasons...
join Sarah Gallant for Global English Communication Mastery: A 6-week Speech and Communication Skills Coaching Program. There are only 5 spots available. By the end of this program, you will be able to speak English with more clarity and communicate more effectively so that you can accomplish your short-term professional goals faster.
How will this LIVE Speech Coaching Program Work?
Before the program begins, you will submit a speech recording. Sarah, your speech coach, will identify 3 priority speech areas that you need to improve to be better understood in the global workplace. You will meet with Sarah for a 30-minute 1-on-1 initial consultation to discuss your speech and communication goals.
Each group coaching session will begin with a speech warm-up. Each participant will take the floor for a minimum of 10 minutes. During this time, the speaker will either respond to a spontaneous question or come prepared with a specific speaking task. E.g., I have an interview coming up. Today, I want to answer the question, "What was the most interesting suggestion or project you initiated?" Sarah will provide focused individualized feedback with step-by-step guidance. She will then assign a focused homework task.

Her approach is collaborative and focuses on real world results.
At the start of any coaching program, she has a conversation with each participant about their short and long-term professional goals. She begins with an initial assessment to determine what skills you need to prioritize so that you can achieve your short-term goals. She provides the tools, practice opportunities, and honest individualized feedback each step of the way.
Each coaching session typically revolves around the work that you need to do. Have a presentation coming up? She will ask you to share your presentation slides for the coaching session. How about an interview? You will work through a series of mock interview questions for individualized feedback and step-by-step guidance. Are you a financial expert who needs to prepare for high-stakes meetings? She will ask you to grab an excel spreadsheet for your coaching session.
At the end of each coaching session, Sarah assigns a homework task to help reinforce a specific skill.
