Speaking English Clearly for Non-Native Professionals
Pronouncing the Sounds of English
Business has become global and more companies have employees from diverse backgrounds and cultures. Many employees who speak English as a second language have a strong grasp of the English language, but a heavy accent may interfere with their ability to be clearly understood when communicating crucial information. Because others make unconscious decisions about whether to listen, believe or trust an expert based on the clarity of his or her speech, it is important that non-native preofessionals be understood easily when speaking English for business.
Our training in Speaking English Clearly: Diction for Non-Native Professionals helps valued employees pronounce the sounds of English that are preventing them from being easily understood. Rather than trying to get rid of their accents, this program simply allows them to speak English more clearly when communicating with clients, customers and co-workers. Participants are taught proper articulation of the sounds of English by positioning the tongue, teeth and lips for correct pronunciation. Industry specific term are practiced to help them converse about the technicalities of the business.
Results of the Speaking Clearly Training
We can design a group course for up to 8 people that meets for 6 - 10 sessions. Individual Coaching is offered in 8-session packages.
Project Interview Coaching
Project team leaders are often brilliant at their technical expertise but may lack the presentation and persuasion skills to win a project. If they are stiff and boring at the project interview, they may lose a project for which they are the best choice.
The success of your company depends on developing new business and the ability of your team leaders to present persuasively in project interviews. To win new projects, team leaders must not only be able to present their technical expertise, ideas and processes in a credible manner; they must also be emotionally engaging and compelling so that the client selection panel feels your project team is the clear winner.
Sandra Zimmer coaches project team leaders to prepare and present persuasive presentations designed to address the client's vision for their project. The presentation preparation process adds additional value of creating chemistry among team leaders and sub-consultants so that they work together more effectively once the project is won.

“Thank you for your efforts with the KBR team in presenting our proposal over the past few days. Somehow through your own style, you calmed everyone's nerves and gave them the confidence to reach beyond what they thought they could do. Arriving later on Sunday night, I cannot truly appreciate the power of your transformational efforts, but I am told that in certain cases, you were nothing short of a miracle worker. You helped this team shine!”
“WOW! I took your Group Facilitation course expecting you would teach me how to tell my sales team how to be more effective. Instead, you taught me how to facilitate my team to tell me how we can be more effective. Our meetings have become much more fun! We are more communicative and more productive. Thank you for showing me how to get the most from my team.
