The “Art of Telling” is professional speaking education for professionals. Every day we are required to share information, explanations, changes, ideas, directions, and viewpoints to others in our lives. Men and women who use the spoken word powerfully are the men and women who change the world – Our World! Effective communication is the key to business success. Who in a leadership role is exempt from the need to prompt others to think, feel and act as they desire? We are all engaged in the effort of persuasion from the moment we are born until we draw our last breath.

The business person today who can communicate clearly with others, whether one-on-one, one-on-five or one-on-five hundred, has enormous power. There is a world of difference between talking to others and communicating with others. Effective communication is a million-dollar skill, a path to success in all areas of your life both personal and professional.
