Why do our clients do business with us?
Hear about it in their own words.
1. Tangible returns on investment.
Training is valuable when learners can positively impact their jobs using new skills learned in class. Ultimately, organizations want to see an increase in revenues, a decrease in costs, and a return on their investment. That’s why iSpeak focuses on providing new real-world skills directly applicable to the learner’s work.
“Thank you for the opportunity to attend the iSpeak presentation class. I thought it was fantastic. I can’t say enough good things about the class. It was extremely valuable and something I wish all our associates could experience.” – J.B. London, Regional Sales Manager, BBU – Arnold / Thomas’ / Entenmann’s
“The Technical Support team received tremendous value from the iSpeak training. The content was very applicable to our day to day activities. I would highly recommend this training.” – Meredith Calvert, Callidus Software
2. Skills taught are immediately applicable.
Adult learners do not take workshops to learn more theory, they want to learn skills that will improve their job performance immediately. The learning must be applicable to their daily work or the skills are not worth the investment of time.
“One of the best time investments I’ve made during my 27 years with CenterPoint Energy [was attending an iSpeak workshop]. I will be able to immediately implement the things I learned over the last two days in my job. Because of this, I will become a much more effective communicator and leader!!” - Ronnie McKneely Jr., CenterPoint Energy
“I simply wish I’d met iSpeak sooner in my career; it is incredible how much they can improve your presentation skills in just a day.” - Hernan Lopez, President, FOX Television
“The entire Communicating4Success course is the best course I have ever taken. Everything I learned in this program will be of benefit to me and my success in the future.” - Larry Hereford, M-I SWACO, A Schlumberger Company
3. Training continues after the class.
A single training event is not the key to behavioral change; it takes a commitment to continued learning. iSpeak can assist with learning after the class with SkillBuilders, iSpeak Training in a Box (iTIB), and online training at iSpeak University.
“XO Communications contacted iSpeak to develop a post training support program to assist in the on-going reinforcement of good sales management practices. iSpeak created a robust monthly reinforcement program, SMIB (Sales Meeting in a Box), inclusive of materials, job aids and videos customized for our industry and practices that has been successfully incorporated into our sales coaching methodology.” - Toni Bailey, Director, National Learning Programs, XO Communications
4. Highest quality instructors.
All iSpeak instructors are a blend of industry knowledge and experience, outstanding facilitation skills, pleasant personalities and the passion to help others achieve more. Prior to facilitating an iSpeak course, all instructors must complete the certification process to become an iSpeak Certified Professional Instructor (iCPI).
“The instructor really knows his stuff – he was eloquent, diplomatic, professional, engaging, inspiring, and very astute to the dynamics of the class. I hope to one day be as good as him! Superior training!” - Gail Webb, AMD
“The instructor was very positive, enthusiastic, well prepared, understood what we need, and was very supportive! The class combined big ideas with useful tools.” - Sydney Suissa, Vice President, National Geographic Channel
5. Customized curriculum.
Whether you work at a Fortune 500 computer company or a professional baseball team, iSpeak will customize the curriculum and examples to match your department, company, and industry... and we do it all at no charge (up to 10 hours).
“Thanks again for putting on the customer service seminar. You guys got rave reviews. People are still talking about how much they all learned. Thanks so much!” - Reid Ryan, President, Round Rock Express, (Triple-A Affiliate of Texas Rangers)
“I loved the materials. The instructor was very personable, interactive, and engaging. He was able to relate specifically to our company. I wouldn’t change a thing. Thank you!!” - Susan Batschelet, Thomson
iSpeak is easy to work with. If you have attendees who only work evenings, only work weekends, or can only be away from work in three hour increments, iSpeak can personally develop a delivery schedule that fits your team’s needs.
“iSpeak customized a Teamwork training program to fit our 3 hour window. They were efficient, accommodating and very effective in everything from the initial concept to the final design. The speaker provided a very entertaining, interactive, funny, and thought-provoking environment which not only resulted in a very successful session, but one that everyone is still talking about a week later. I would highly recommend their services.” - Dan Mueller, Enterprise Products
“We hired iSpeak on two different occasions and will continue working with them in the future as a result of their dedication to help us grow. They are very flexible to work with and I highly recommend their services.” - Selene Benavides, National Society of Hispanic MBAs
7. Easy to work with.
When you are not sure whom to call for help with your learning and development project, iSpeak wants the call. We specialize in helping you pull off the impossible.
“We had hired another training vendor, but were very disappointed after the first class. iSpeak stepped in, customized their materials and were ready to facilitate a class less than 3 business days later. We are now using iSpeak for all of our management and communication training needs.” - Julie Ayres, Cameron
8. Socially responsible.
We are part of a community. Our corporate mission is simply to make a difference. We firmly believe that our focus should always be on making a difference... whether for our customers or for our community. Making the world a better place is everyone's responsibility, including iSpeak's.
“The Children at Heart Ministries appreciates iSpeak giving back to the community and providing high quality, state-of-the-art training that exceeded the expectations of our management staff. The material is practical, helpful, and reinforces principals of best practice, relationship building, motivation and clear communication. It will directly assist our leadership team in how they care for their employees, the children and the families. Thank you for making a positive difference at our organization.” - Don Forrester, Vice President for Programs and Services, Children At Heart Ministries
