My relationship with Elizabeth Brazell Nichols goes back almost 20 years when I had the privilege of knowing her and her wonderful parents in the National Speakers Association. In the late 1980’s I had the opportunity to host a television talk show on Public Broadcasting. The problem, however, was my voice…specifically my ‘Texas accent’. I contracted with Elizabeth to teach me standard American dialect and to virtually eliminate my Texas accent.
I can’t say enough about not only her knowledge of how to make these changes, but even more importantly her incredible ability to communicate difficult sounding ways of speaking. Her patience was overwhelming, and I have since had the opportunity to observe her working with another important person in my life, my wife.
As a professional speaker and television talk show host for the last 16 years, I can’t say enough about how important the improvement in my communications skills has been. As a former bank CEO, and present Board member of two publicly traded companies, I know once again the importance of communications skills.
One company on whose board I sit has 55,000 employees worldwide with many of those employees operating call centers. There is little doubt that people around the globe could benefit from Elizabeth’s knowledge and expertise. Contact me if there’s any information that you may need.
