I participate in a number of groups in the industry and have a few key peers with whom I regularly consult with. By regularly networking in this way I am able to stay on top of developments in the industry. My peers help to keep my focus on the needs and goals of the students I work with.
As a small busines owner working in the sales industry, communication is paramount. For this reason, my colleague suggested I take elocution lessons to help with my accent, and recommended someone who had helped him. Initially I was reluctant to call, but am thrilled I did. Charmaine was a Godsend. She was very tentative, patient, and easy to work with. Thanks to her lessons, not only is my accent gone, my clients are more receptive, and sales numbers have improved dramatically. I would highly recommend her services anyone!+ Read More
Charmaine was wonderful, she was helped me get back my London accent as I felt I was losing it over time living in the USA.
