Our Happy Clients
“The feedback on my yearly review pointed to much improved communication skills…
“After a couple of weeks, my colleagues and my manager noticed my pronunciation improvement… I am more confident in casual conversations but especially at business meetings and presentations… and am able to express complex ideas much more clearly than before.”
Angelica Castro, Emergency Management Advisor, Government of Ontario
“Thank you very much for everything.
It was one of the best training classes I have ever had. I hope to have another chance to participate in the next session. “
Nasser Hamzehloo, SNC Nuclear
“I finally know how to improve my pronunciation, how to work with my tongue, and what kind of practice to do every day. Now I can hear myself when I speak correctly and when I speak incorrectly.”
Natalia Atapina, Recruitment Advisor, Brainhunter
“The presentation was very appropriate given the demands of our helpdesk – I even mentioned how much I enjoyed it to our supervisors. Personally, I’d never thought of culture as it relates to community vs the individual and have even mentioned the concept a couple of times today. Everybody who attended walked away thinking about how communication relates to our jobs.”
John Coldwell, Contact Centre Agent, Ontario Shared Services
“I realized that speaking clearly was key for my professional and personal success. I was motivated but couldn’t identify my pronunciation mistakes and issues I had with speed and tone of voice. When I first met Heather at Voice to Word, she had already analyzed my case (via recordings,) was ready for me and deeply understood my challenges. The materials were very well organized and effective and I found the recorded sessions and materials extremely useful. Heather’s patience, humour and personalized care, combined with the relaxing, home-like environment, helped me to relax, focus and absorb the content. It has been a great learning experience, and I highly recommend Voice to Word’s services.”
Merling Sapene, Bombardier Aerospace
“Well done! Helped solidify and bring heightened awareness of issues which were inhibiting client communications and progress. Good balance of lecture and interactive activity.”
Michael Medina, CBRC, Professional Development Conference
