Hannah, Management Strategy Consultant
Thank you! I have so many tools and frameworks I can try out on my next client engagement at work. I cannot wait.
Thomas, Global Management Strategy Firm
Too many ah-ha moments to list. My favorite takeaway was learning how to flex my communication style to maximize impact with various stakeholders.
Kristin, Medical Device Company
My facilitator was constructive and inspiring, and I genuinely enjoyed our time together. I am walking away armed with a plethora of communication tactics to use in every day meetings as well as a long term plan to help build my career.
Matt, Global Management Strategy Firm
After the first training in the series, I had already benefitted and seen a clear path to improving my Leadership Communication further.
Georgy, Interior Design and Architecture
Our team enjoyed your presentation very much. They are still talking about it! Excellent content and exceptional delivery of an important topic.
Steven, Global Event Production Company
I really enjoyed being pushed outside of my comfort zone and trying to present a plan without any real rehearsal. The direct and constructive feedback received from the facilitator and my peers will help me immensely in the future.
Christina, French Multinational Professional Services and Business Corporation
The training absolutely exceeded expectations. It was well structured and just the perfect duration. The team had fun with some of the more creative activities (like the vocal exercises) and really helped to get everyone relaxed. Additionally, the balanced focus on style, message, and image hit key points for each individual team member.
Lisa, Entrepeneur
The training program was one of the best things I have ever done!! Everything made sense and felt natural.  I felt we used our time wisely and didn’t waste a minute.  It was a big investment for me but worth every penny.  I am hoping that my executive group for the bank will be able to train with you after we get past the first round of funding.
Michael, Management Strategy Consulting
I just used some of the influencing techniques to have a chat with a Senior Partner. It was productive to say the least and definitely helped engage him with the team better. Thank you so much.
Kris, Telecommunications Company
I secured Speak by Design in 2018 to assist me on my executive level communication and presentation skills. The tailored one-on-one coaching sessions were the most effective approach to date I have ever experienced! The coaching was targeted on what I needed to improve and could be applied immediately on the job. The results of our work have had...

It is not easy to find a good coach for CEOs. I'd like to make some introductions. Your work is excellent. I feel revived after our session.
Martin, IT Executive
Every session was enjoyable as they all contained hard work but there was always a personal touch of kindness and partnership to achieve the goals.
Sidney, Management Strategy Firm
Speak by Design’s training has prepared me for any presentation. Most importantly, I have more confidence and poise in front of an audience. I breathe, walk, and talk differently. The experience was extremely personalized, and the facilitators s are committed 100% to your improvement.
Mike, CEO, Health Services Provider
Thank you, Speak by Design, for the session and the feedback. As always, it’s tremendously helpful. To the extent I’ve improved in my communication abilities and style, I believe a large part of it is due to the Speak by Design work!
Alex, VP of Operations
I was able to get the support I needed as a CEO candidate. We focused on investor relationships, Board presentations, and all staff presentations.
David, CEO
I am a solid presenter and knew I needed a coach who could push me sky high.  I used Speak by Design to prepare me for my TED Talk.
Mark, Global Technology Firm
I realized what I've respected about other people's communication styles is the ability to switch between different roles in meetings. It was eye opening that this was a technique that I could practice and develop.
Efrain, Multinational Food Manufacturing
I see this class as a big kicker in my professional career and a very valuable experience. I hope you remember my name when I start working in TV broadcasting. :-)
Jessica, Global Technology Firm
I like the fact that I have a framework and tools to use in my interactions. I think I "knew" how to behave in certain situations before, but now I have vocabulary and more technical focus on those skills.
Isaac, Global Technology Firm
Where do I start? The whole first session on visual and tonal cues was enlightening. The second session really tested me and I have frequent interactions with E-staff level and Board members. Both sessions had several take-aways for me.
