What exactly does it mean to communicate effectively? It is the ability to speak in a way that exudes confidence, clarity and a command of the spoken word. This is much more easily accomplished when one has a strong self-image. Surprisingly, the ability to communicate effectively with others unnerves many people. In fact, there are many people who are utterly paralyzed by just the thought of making small talk, participating in group discussions or speaking in front of a large audience.
Merrill Winoker, the founder of Effective Communications, started his business to help his clients overcome their fears and to feel comfortable having a conversation and connecting with others. He explains that there is no reason to fear public speaking and no need to "hide in the broom closet" anymore! Merrill has been speaking professionally his whole career and has extensively studied the theories of successful public speakers. His natural ease speaking in front of others is immediately apparent upon meeting him. This ease has come from years of building and honing his own self -image, and now, he wants to help you find your own footing and step out of that proverbial "broom closet".
There are many scenarios that require individuals to communicate effectively. Whether you are the CEO of a big company, or a tradesman trying to sell your services; whether you are the best man at a wedding who is expected to give the celebratory toast or just the host of a dinner party who needs to keep the conversation lively; or whether you are going on a first date or trying to muster the courage to ask your boss for a raise - YOU are the perfect candidate to attend one of the coaching seminars offered at Effective Communications.
