About Us

We Help you Speak with Confidence and Clarity

Accent Reduction Pros has helped corporate executives, legal and medical professionals, call center staff, and others improve their communications skills by modifying their pronunciation to reduce foreign accents for increased speech clarity and optimize their voice production.
 
Specializing in accent reduction and corporate speech training, we use technology and self study for mastering Standard American English pronunciation.  We help corporate and other professionals whose verbal communication is critical to job task completion and who want to improve their speaking and communication skills.
 
Our corporate speech services include call center training, presentation skills instruction, and cultural speech awareness plus other workplace training programs. We offer group and individual instruction in a convenient location and also provide distance learning and video conferencing. Our clients have seen dramatic results from participation in accent reduction training, and we work with call center institutes as well as HR departments to customize training to fit specific business needs.
