Over a decade of teaching Accent Reduction, and other classes, at the University of North Florida’s English Language Program, and College of Education, Health, and Human Services, has allowed me to work with not just college age students, but also: CEOs, business owners, and upper and middle management individuals that want to improve not just pronunciation, but general presentational skills as well. I have worked with people from many organizations, including (but not limited to) : CSX Railroad, The Mayo Clinic, The Internal Revenue Service, Bacardi’s, Budweiser, The University of Florida, The University of North Florida, Duval County School District, The Diocese of St. Augustine, Gerdau S.A., Adecco, The Saudi Arabian Royal Navy, Natural Wonders Perfumes Distribution, Del Rio Dental, Simon Properties, and many more. Whether English is your second language or your first, I can help you improve your communications skills. Body language, facial and vocal expressiveness, PowerPoint production and delivery, teleconferencing, and organizational and sales presentations, can all be improved with my professional input. Remember that the higher up the organizational chart you are, the less likely a colleague or employee is to offer honest feedback regarding any shortcomings you might exhibit.
