"Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren’t used to an environment where excellence is expected." - Steve Jobs

Corporate Speech Consultants (CSC), established by award-winning teacher, author and speech coach Melanie Novis, develops and delivers interactive seminars that enable individuals to enhance their public speaking ability, presentation skills and leadership presence.

Our speciality is helping executives, professionals, managers, entrepreneurs and international clients to present their message with confidence and clarity. Our coaching – from one- on-one to groups – is tailored, practical and results-driven.

We focus on each client’s business needs and professional context, whether we design individualized training or an interactive seminar for a team of executives. Our purpose is to help you to present yourself in a polished, dynamic manner so that your message is engaging and clearly understood. We begin the process with an in-depth discussion – in person or over the phone – where we assess your needs together. Then we tailor your training program to achieve your defined objectives.

We offer one-on-one coaching sessions in speech-making, presentation delivery, effective communication, leadership presence, image enhancement and speech clarity. We also deliver personalized speech coaching via Skype. Each session is tailored to your business objectives and time constraints, usually ranging from an intensive day or week, to ongoing weekly programs.

Successful businesses are results-driven; so are we. We customize the program material to your unique professional situation in order to help you achieve your desired results. These results have included a range of successes, such as influencing key decision-makers, presenting at a conference, delivering a board presentation, making a sales or elevator pitch, launching a new product, addressing the world stage and executing a strategy of high-impact communications.
