  • How do I know if this is the right course level for me?

    Every person comes to the table at a different place on the learning curve. The content in this course is designed to help you push the bar for you personally, no matter where you are on your path. Supplementing the course content is a 60+ page workbook, providing you with the opportunity to practice the techniques highlighted in the course and to instill the knowledge learned. If you have to pitch a client, if you have to be a moderator, if you have to be in the media, if you have to present to your boss – anytime you need to communicate, this course will help you.

  • What if I get busy for a while and can’t complete the course in a four-week span?

    We understand that schedules get busy and, so, this is a self-paced course. Though we encourage students not to break for long periods of time between units whenever possible to help knowledge retention, there are no time requirements for enrollment.

  • How do I know if I need to improve my communication skills?

    We’ve all heard the phrase “you learn something new every day.” In the communication world, it couldn’t be more true. There is always room for growth; always room for improvement. Each day we try new tones, rephrase questions, make mistakes, and grow. Ask yourself – when you stand up in front of clients or colleagues, are you connecting? Are you engaging? How do you know? If you have any apprehension around speaking or presenting in public – whether one-on-one, in a small group, or on a stage, this course is for you. If you feel confident, but don’t feel connected with those to whom you are speaking, this course is for you. The world has changed in terms of how people hear information. This course will help you to communicate better today.

  • What will this course do for me? What impact will I see?

    This course will show you how to use your voice and the impact the voice has on how you communicate your message – whatever that message may be. Your audience will be more engaged. You will feel more confident. Your content will improve. You will have clarity on that content. You will deliver your content in a more conversational way.

  • I’m not sure I want to spend the money on the VIP level. How much more will I learn with the investment?

    Supplementing all that you learn in the course, one-on-one coaching with an expert communications coach will allow you to focus in on personal areas of growth. The VIP level allows for customized training and real-time feedback. While private one-on-one coaching costs more than $5000, the VIP package saves you more than $1000 over the individual purchase of the course and a separate one-on-one coaching package with Brunner Communications.

  • Are the strategies you share only applicable to specific business areas or positions?

    Clear and good communication is clear and good communication in any position and in any industry. It can help you move the dial in your career, no matter where your skill level is today. Even the best speakers have room to grow.
