This is a useful coaching program for executives and others for whom English is a second language. If you find your accent is getting in the way of you being properly understood, you could benefit by having a few lessons with us .

As well as accent reduction, sound formation, pitch and tone work, we will also add breathing, diction, vocal variety, and projection techniques.
