Through Research and Development with Froedtert Hospital’s speech pathology department, SpeakPulse was created to help individuals become more articulate and effective speakers. Its proprietary software enables individuals to identify weak areas of their speech delivery and frequency of disfluency, isolate those problems and eventually eliminate them or make improvements.
Everyone has varying degrees of speaking ability – however, whether they like to admit it or not, everyone can be a better speaker. Because speaking involves so many different components, it can be difficult, time-consuming and expensive to train on your own. Our proposal to you is let us help you find out where you stand, and then help you improve. In a nutshell, SpeakPulse aims to help you benchmark your speaking level. To the right is just a small sampling of the groups we assist.
Hesitation devices like “um” or “ah”, a tendency to speak too fast, or problems like excessive disfluency are all things that weaken a person’s speech delivery. A SpeakPulse assessment will uncover these problems. For training and coaching firms, our assessment software provides a way to benchmark a client’s verbal communication skills. Clients can then be trained based on this foundation.
On the self-improvement side of the equation, once we can discover the areas you struggle with, you can isolate those problems, and find ways to improve them. That way, the next time you practice, the next time you speak in public, or the next time you see a business coach, you can begin cutting out these bad habits. After all, recognizing a problem is the best way to begin correcting it.
Business or speaking coaches’ reputations and earnings are judged by how well their clients succeed professionally. Part of their job is helping them effectively communicate and give oral presentations. SpeakPulse is here to assist you with your clients. We act as another tool in your toolbox so you can benchmark your clients’ speaking ability and determine what areas they need to improve.
Whether you’re a sales person or a customer service representative, speaking articulately and professionally is going to be a major determinant of your professional success. Clients expect it, your managers require it, and your professional advancement will depend on it. Make sure your next client or prospect is blown away by your communication skills.
