Speak Clearly.

Be understood.

Improve your verbal communication.

I'm Jennifer

My goal is for you to be easily understood and to feel confident when you are communicating!

As a board certified and licensed Speech-Language Pathologist, I will work extremely hard to help you accomplish your goal of presenting yourself with effective, confident communication skills.

Because communication has a multitude of channels, my coaching experience is broad and includes: presentation skills, speech writing, Standard American accent training, preparing for a TV interview, helping people with their 30-second self-elevator pitch, helping to organize an internal corporate communication plan, helping people who have a fear of speaking in a group setting, and coaching people who speak too quickly.

Our clients are brilliant people that are limited by communication challenges.

If you drastically improved your ability to present ideas to colleagues, in meetings, and to clients, what would that change in your levels of success and happiness?

Public Speaking
and Accent
COACHING

  • Do you remain quiet in meetings because you are unhappy with your communication skills?
  • Are you concerned about the way you say certain sounds?
  • Are you asked to repeat yourself?
  • Are you responsible for presenting to a group of individuals?
  • Do you struggle gaining a group’s attention?

All individuals can benefit from public speaking coaching. Whether it is an annual sales meeting or a regular conference, learning how to deliver a concise, clear message will pay for itself over and over!

Corporate Communication
TRAINING

  • Are your employee’s communication styles holding them back?
  • Do you value investing in a company’s learning needs?
  • Would making sure everyone is on the same page regarding the value of outstanding communication important to the success of your organization?
Employing training and development is essential for companies to strengthen their employee performance. Communication training is accomplished through a system of experiential activities that educate employees. It acts as a catalyst to success for employees, which, in turn, means the success of your business/organization as a whole.

Business Communication
CONSULTING

  • Are you losing sales or clients because of communication breakdowns?
  • When is the last time you thought about how your employees communicate with each other and clients? 
  • Do you feel that communication mistakes are an obstacle to collaboration and team work?

As an organization hierarchy, people, and processes change, the company needs to change and increase communication or get left behind.  If not, there are lots of prices

A change in communication culture benefits individuals and overall organizations.

Oops, I did it again. 
Mistakes are not fun. 
But they happen. 
I am lucky enough to have a support group that feels comfortable and confident with me to TELL ME when I need to make a change. And I have to be OPEN to other people’s perspective. 
How hypocritical of me to be a speech coach and train people how to add, change, and delete speaking and listening habits if I didn’t respect when people give me lessons!!

There are many areas in which I am extremely grateful when I look back at 2022. 
But nothing compares to the number of outstanding PEOPLE I met and worked with this past year!
This is Tiffany Slavik! It's actually hard to believe we met 12 months ago, because it seems like we've worked together for YEARS. She understands exactly what I offer and the value that it brings to clients! Without an advocate like Tiffany, my 2022 would not be as successful as it was. 
And Tiffany is just one of many who I received advice & support from and who has my back. Thank you Tripper Ortman, Larry Nonn, Shawn Scanlon, Jack Zwissig, Bobby Ochse, FMP,Scott Wine, Laura Overall, Marcia Zizek, Richard Trietley, Sonia Sethi-Kohli, Katie Schwartz, CCC-SLP, Diandra Apoyan, CCC-SLP, Laura Lachance, Jose Aguilar, MS HRM, SPHR, Denise Ortega Hernandez, MS HRD, Adrienne Wallace, MBA, M.S., CCC-SLP, Mary Diligent, Joelle Kupras, Kelly Bayani, Garrett Damron, David Shoup, Troy French, Angela King, Rebecca Jorgenson, Erin Haubner, Leslie Morris, David Morris, Don Garman, Parag Garg, Dean Hallett, Dan Peeples, Daniel Walls, Vince Han, Colum Lundt.
We all need champions on our side! And you were mine.
And if you or anyone you know needs Speech Coaching for an event or just to level up your communication & listening skills, give me a shout! 
Happy New Year to all!

Remarkable C&C Speech Coaching Adventure! I was incredibly impressed by these seven CHNi demo teams - they were 1) willing to listen to speech coaching feedback and 2) put the tips that I gave them into practice! 
Each speaker has their own strengths and areas to improve. No speaker is alike. 
For example, one presenter rocked on his back heels; another kept touching his face; another stood right in front of the monitor so I couldn’t see the power point presentation. All habits - all coachable.
Once I pointed out these situations and demonstrated what TO do, they were off and running! And with a smile! 😊 
As you can see from the photos, the teams had fun at the event and they all wanted me to tell them that they were the #1 demo team. Sorry guys, I don’t have favorites. 😏 (…But you know who you are)
Thank you @case_ih for inviting me to be the speech coach for your 2022 Tech Day Teams! #speechcoach #confidence #slplife #presentationskills #cnh

One of life’s challenges is to effectively MANAGE our emotions to achieve what we want to accomplish. 
The ability to STRETCH yourself past your comfort zone is challenging. 
Some examples of situations that make people nervous:
- speaking in front of a group
- project due dates
- looking for a job
- getting on an airplane
- going on a first date
- giving and receiving feedback
- going on a roller coaster 
Be patient with yourself. Ask for support. Be accountable. 
If speaking in front of others is one of your stretch goals and it makes you nervous, contact me and I can help you! www.ccspeechcoach.com

Your body language, eye contact, hand gestures, and tone of voice all color the message you are trying to convey. 👀
In fact, approximately 93% of communication is nonverbal - while words account for only 7%! 🤯
💡Successful interactions at work depend on both managers and their team’s ability to use and read body language. 🤓
TIP #1 - Several nonverbal cues convey confidence in the workplace:
1) Strong eye contact 
2) Appropriate facial expressions
3) A confident handshake
4) Purposeful gestures
5) Commanding posture and presence
TIP #2 - Be conscious of how your body language, facial expressions and tone of voice reflect your nonverbal communication - and if it matches your intended message. Record yourself practicing your presentation or having a tough conversation and play it back with the sound OFF, watching your nonverbal communication. What did you notice? 🤔
Question - if someone's non-verbal communication is distracting or sending the wrong message, do you tell them? Explain. 🫣
