Presentation Training
for ESL Speakers

Presenting is hard.
Presenting in a second language is harder.

Stressed Man

Questions about pronunciation,
instant translation, word-crafting, and audience perception waste time, decrease confidence and distract speakers from what matters most--telling their story in the most compelling way. 


According to Pew Research there are over 21 million foreign-born professionals in the US workforce.

While diversity can enhance culture and even aid growth in profits, many ESL speakers report that they dread presenting, don't speak up in meetings, and don't pursue advancement opportunities they otherwise would. This has a high cost for the individual and the company: it can affect job performance, satisfaction and employee retention rates.
