We well understand how vital effective communication is to the success of any situation or relationship. Whether you are an individual looking to improve your professional presence, or an organization looking to improve communication among your leadership/employees/prospective customers, investing in in the right resources, and more specifically, the right Trainer, is key to developing strategies for success.
Individuals & Organizations have an extensive array of Corporate Trainers to select from when looking to hire someone to aid in their professional communication development. Trainers come from a variety of educational/industrial backgrounds. CORSPAN Corporate Speech Trainers offer a distinct blend of academic expertise, practical experience, and the ability to design & execute proven training methods. CORSPAN Members all have an advanced graduate degree in Speech-Language Pathology. This signifies that not only do our CORSPAN Members have a great depth of knowledge of typical vs atypical speech and language development and delivery, they also possess the skillset to assess communication-related issues and programmatically develop a plan to achieve functional results, and most importantly, they are experts at training, coaching, and guiding to help individuals and organizations achieve those results that will influence change and make a successful impact.

CORSPAN Membership allows individuals to regularly receive continuing education/professional development related to corporate speech & communication service delivery, and to engage in networking opportunities to discuss challenges and successful outcomes that Members have encountered in their own practices. There is an immense amount of ongoing communication and collaboration, constant learning, and access to resources that occurs within the CORSPAN Membership. Members apply this learned information to their own training businesses, resulting in CORSPAN Corporate Speech Trainers constantly being at the cutting edge of what works in terms of training individuals and organizations at achieving communication success.
I am privileged to serve as President this year for this unique community that brings together highly skilled communication training professionals who work together to set a standard of excellence through their ongoing collaboration and desire to continuously enhance their own training practices.
