SpeakPulse™ Assessment


It’s often not what you say but how you say it. Professionals say that your actual delivery constitutes 80% of your effectiveness while your content, or what you actually say, constitutes 20%.

Many people know what they want to say but need help articulating that. At the end of the day, a clear and professional delivery increases your effectiveness, adds credibility to what you say and makes you come across as more assertive. In today’s ultra-competitive environment, it’s critical to give yourself an advantage in any way possible – and that includes being a better speaker and communicator. That begs the question – how do you get there from where you are now? How do you get from Intermediate to Advanced and beyond? We don’t claim to have a silver bullet but we can start by helping you identify any areas for improvement. SpeakPulse is an innovative software solution that helps you objectively evaluate and quantify your speaking ability. Proficient speaking skills and a strong speech delivery allows individuals to communicate effectively and standout among peers.

Our process is simple for the end user. After a short recording, SpeakPulse evaluates many variables – “ums”, stutters, mispronunciations, speech errors, clarity, your overall voice quality, etc. – to arrive at a composite score.

Whether it be preparing for an interview, practicing for a presentation, enhancing your dialogue with customers, or coaching your clients to speak better, SpeakPulse puts you on the path to be a better speaker.

Assessment Certification


SpeakPulse provides quantitative speech analysis for companies and individuals. In the course of the development, SpeakPulse received significant and extensive consultation from Mary Brawley MA, CCC-SLP, BRS-S, a speech pathologist and Manager of the Department of Otolaryngology and Communication Sciences at Froedtert Hospital in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Dr. Brawley has over 30+ years of speech therapy experience and guidance, and acted as a close consultant during development. In creating the SpeakPulse model, we identified the core areas of concern for speakers - areas that affect the quality of verbal communication skills.
