Lauren Marlow, Speechworks (Family Business Radio, Episode 30)
Lauren Marlow, CEO of Speechworks, was Anthony Chen’s guest on this episode of Family Business Radio. As the social aspects of her work as an attorney withered during the pandemic, she realized she was ready for a change, and leaped at the opportunity to join Speechworks. Lauren discussed honoring one’s priorities, how Speechworks helps people develop the skills and ability to connect with an audience, the Persuasive Speaker’s Program, and much more.
In Anthony’s closing comments, he reflected on clarifying the quality of life you desire and planning for those choices. Family Business Radio is underwritten and brought to you by Anthony Chen with Lighthouse Financial Network.
Speechworks is a communications skills coaching firm.
Since 1986, Speechworks has helped countless professionals become better communicators and presenters through tried-and-true methods designed to help clients learn to:
● Organize simple, persuasive messages – delivering in formal presentations or impromptu situations when there is little to no time to prepare;
● Deliver messages in a style that connects – emphasizing good eye contact and authentic vocal, physical, and facial energy; and
● Embrace Q&A – answering questions in a way that inspires confidence and boosts credibility.
The Speechworks Difference
SUPPORTIVE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT – Speaking in front of a group can be stressful. So, they limit our workshops to small groups of 5 or 6 participants per coach. They create a friendly, fun setting that helps put people at ease. A relaxed, low-pressure approach creates a learning environment that yields rapid results.
PRACTICAL COACHING – Speechworks coaches will make your experience outstanding. Having worked with business people in many industry areas, their coaches quickly understand and adapt to the needs of your business situation. Clients are not boxed into a one-size-fits-all solution.
IMMEDIATE IMPACT – They video record each participant multiple times in each workshop. You will see yourself the way your audience sees you! By reviewing your own performance, receiving feedback and focusing on a few key improvement areas, you will return to work with new skills you can use immediately.
