Public Speaking and Business Communication Skills - Online Classes

Did you know you that you can take your pubic speaking training classes online-Nationwide? There are many online public speaking classes to choose from on the internet. Selecting the best one to meet your goals can be overwhelming.

Elizabeth Peterson is a speech-language pathologist with over 20 years of experience and has specialized knowledge with business communication and how it transfers toward your leadership image. There are specific mechanical skills that go behind effective communication and once you learn them, you will be communicating in a style that sounds smart and confident. Our training also includes several cognitive and behavioral components on how to speak effectively in front of people.

The Benefits of Our Public Speaking Classes and Online Training

  • Eliminate travel or working with someone who is not in your area.
  • A public speaking online class is the same experience as being onsite. The instruction is identical. See our reviews in Google, Facebook, and Yelp.

Contact us to arrange your complementary consultation. Taking a custom designed online public speaking class is easy and convenient with expert and skilled instruction. We use many of the popular online platforms.

professional intonation with interesting and engaging melody
  • Professional Intonation. You will learn how to speak in a melody style that will sound engaging and interesting to your listener. Speaking with professional intonation will create clearer speech with better pronunciation of all sounds. You will be speaking in a speed that is appropriate and easy for your listener to process your information. Since you will be having better range of motion with your mouth, you will have natural and enhanced projection.
  • Optimal Vocal Pitch. There is a place in your lower throat where your vocal folds function at their best to bring out your strongest and most powerful voice. If your voice is too high, thin or nasal, learning how to speak in your best pitch will give you a stronger voice and you will appear more confident.
  • Diaphragm Breathing. Breathing for life is different than breathing for effective communication. Most people breathe from their upper chest, creating breath that is too shallow and talking that is too fast. If you are someone who feels tired or out of breath when talking or you don’t have enough volume or power, then you are probably not getting in enough air to support your statements. Learning how to speak from a fuller breath will give your voice more power and more comfort when speaking in longer sentences.

Does Your Communication Style Radiate Leadership? Leadership through communication is defined by those who speak with controlled intonation and from their lower throat. Learn how to have these skills in our online public speaking class.

Your Online Public Speaking Class Can Also Include:

  • Hands-on presentation coaching. Once you have learned the three most important mechanical skills, it is time to practice with one of your presentations. We can work on an upcoming presentation or an older one. The hands-on coaching is the most effective way for identifying interfering behaviors and noticing improvements. The speech coaching works great online.
  • Cognitive and physical strategies for managing fear of public speaking. A variety of strategies for combating fear of public speaking will be taught. You will also learn techniques on how to “ground” yourself before starting a presentation or leading a meeting.
  • Body language. Learn what to do with those hands and other poses that signifies confidence and leadership.
  • Learn the key body language signals others send. If you know what it looks like when someone has had enough, is uncomfortable with what they are hearing or is simply processing the information, then you are in a position of more power on how to proceed with your meeting/presentation.
  • Clean and fluid language is how to persuade. If you speak with verbal viruses (um, like so) or use weak vocabulary, the quality of your message and leadership image will be affected. You will learn the cure for verbal viruses and how speak more fluently with stronger business vocabulary.

By the end of the training the following objectives should be achieved based on length of class.

  • Business intonation, the professional speaking pattern of broadcasters, political figures and many CEO’s, using the easy “speech stairs” strategy. Speaking with professional intonation is the most important skill for successful public speaking.
  • How to speak with a stronger and more powerful voice that naturally improves projection.
  • How to easily transfer these skills for leading meetings and delivering presentations.
  • Common everyday words that signal a lack of confidence and how to identify “Verbal Viruses” (i.e., umm, so, like) that confuse messaging will be identified.
  • How to better achieve “active listening” instead of passive processing.

Public Speaking FAQ's


Do you have a question about our online public speaking courses and classes? Take a look at our frequently asked questions below!

Improving your speech and voice quality can make a big difference on how you are perceived by others. Many individuals speak in a pitch that is too high, thin or nasal. Often individuals with these voice qualities are judged as being too young or not confident or competent enough for management or leadership positions. The perception is that they do not measure up as strongly when compared to people who have a rich and commanding voice quality. Think of the voice quality of male and female news broadcasters. Do their voices sound nasal or thin to you?

Speech and Voice Enterprises will profile your speech and voice skills and immediately offer strategies that will improve your voice quality and speaking styles, as well as your confidence and leadership status. Vocal coaching and speech therapy will teach you how to speak in your ideal pitch range, while naturally projecting your voice for more commanding vocal tones. You will learn how to organize and present information concisely even when put on the spot without warning.

Anxiety that interferes with your message will be eliminated. You will also learn how to speak with clear articulation and diction. When you are talented and have expertise, sharing your knowledge should be exciting and fun. Your speaking skills and voice quality are the most important factors for communication, especially in a professional setting. Speech and Voice Enterprises will teach you how to sound like a polished and professional speaker in just a few sessions.

A typical voice and speech coaching session at Speech and Voice Enterprises is high energy, direct and geared for your specific needs, goals and interests. We will incorporate your daily routine, professional obligations and the typical things you say each day into your program so it is functional and custom tailored to meet your speech and voice requirements.

It makes more sense to work around your professional script and daily obligations than to do “general speech and voice activities.” We are experts at identifying what is essential to your goals and creating a plan around your lifestyle so you will quickly achieve your goals and move forward with your plans.

Often many employers will cover the cost as a part of their training program since these skills relate to many job descriptions and expectations. Ask your employer or human resource specialist.

If your employer in unable to finance the program, you can ask your tax accountant if the program fee is an appropriate tax deduction since this for professional training and education. You will receive a certificate of completion at the end of your program. 

The good news is Speech and Voice Enterprises has a variety of payment options. If you truly want to reduce your accent or improve your speech and voice skills, our flexible fee schedules will allow that to happen.

First it would be best to consult an ear, nose and throat specialist (ENT) to rule out a specific voice disorder. An evaluation and diagnosis will determine if it is appropriate to begin therapy with a speech-language pathologist.

Yes! This poll is done frequently with the same result. More people are afraid of public speaking than of death,  or even of being diagnosed with cancer! It baffles us that millions of people feel this way. It truly can be easy and fun to speak confidently in front of people.

Once you learn a few simple tricks and strategies about breathing, where to place your voice for a rich, vocal tone and eliminating anxiety, you will want to seek out opportunities to speak with or in front of people.

Call us for a free consultation on learning how to speak in public and enjoy yourself at the same time!
