Employee Training to Boost Your Bottom Line

Six In-Person Sessions to Improve Employee Communication, Clarity, and Confidence.

Are you ready to witness a transformation in your employees' ability to:

  • Communicate more clearly and effectively?
  • Increase close rates?
  • Get more 5-star reviews?

Present Like a Pro: Speak with Confidence offers 6 in-person sessions starting January 25th at Skagit Valley College. Classes are held Wednesday evenings from 6:00 – 7:45 pm in Angst Hall room A-125.

It’s been said that 85% of a person’s financial success is due to their ability to communicate, negotiate, and lead. And since your company is run by people, it makes sense that your company’s financial success is dependent on those same abilities

Rebecca worked with a broad segment of our staff, many with no public speaking experience, on a journey in confidence building, teamwork, team bonding, and personal growth. We also had a barrel full of fun, and came away with a much deeper sense of connection with and understanding of our co-workers.
