Achievers USA Sponsors ‘Speaking Ingeniously’ Course

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio — Achievers USA, the Mahoning Valley’s business-development network, is sponsoring a week-long immersive course on transformational speaking that features Jonathan Altfeld of the Mastery InSight Institute in Tampa, Fla.

Altfeld is an expert in neuro-linguistic programming, “a proven method for influencing others via language and communication,” says Greg Smith, founder of Achievers USA. “We know the most successful business leaders are great communicators. Jonathan’s course is literally guaranteed to improve anyone’s speaking ability and overall effectiveness in their given business.”

In every line of work, the more skilled the speaker, the more likely sales will be made, clients will be gained and presentations will be effective. Yet, despite the profit implications, less than 1% of all speakers are “transformational speakers,”  those with the ability to really captivate an audience and change their perspective, according to Smith.

The course is titled “Speaking Ingeniously” and will take place at the Holiday Inn Boardman May 9-13. Class sessions run daily from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Space is limited.
