Connecting as a communicator isn’t about trying to become someone else — it’s about reaching inside yourself and bringing out the best of what is uniquely you.

For over forty years Speakeasy has provided personal growth, communication development and consulting services to some of the most influential business leaders in the world.
There is a unifying philosophy that underpins everything the company does. It s a belief that our focus must always remain on the individual — that everything that individual needs to be a great communicator already exists within them. Our work is drawing out the best of who that person is.
If you are a leader with responsibility and influence, this book is addressed to you. As the title suggests, they will ask you to accept a challenge, a DARE.
The Bestselling New Book from Scott Weiss
If business is going to win over today s cynical stakeholders, it will be by following the path laid out in this lively and thought-provoking book.
Here s hoping leaders will read it and heed it.
Our learning environments have been designed for your comfort, stimulation and ultimate success.
Using powerful communication to drive real results is critical to your success. And helping you develop into the best communicator you can be is critical to ours. To do that, we ve developed a full continuum of programs and services designed to address every aspect of your communication development.
We ve also taken great care to create a working environment that allows you to take best advantage of every aspect of your experience with us.
Great journeys require great guides. When you journey to become a great communicator, you need to explore with someone who understands the commitment, knows the course, and sees the possibilities. You need to work with someone who will lead you where you want to go and inspire you to go even further. That’s the kind of guide you’ll find at Speakeasy.
Business today knows few boundaries, and managers, regardless of location or culture, recognize the need to truly connect in order to drive the business results they want.
Speakeasy has provided communication and personal development services to leaders all over the world for over forty years – it s not unusual for us to have instructors and consultants on three or more continents at any given time. But our global clients have become more and more vocal about their need for greater access to regularly scheduled programs in Europe, and Asia and we re pleased to oblige.
We now operate full office and classroom facilities in Amsterdam, conducting ongoing, open-enrollment offerings marking the first time in the company’s history that business leaders could individually join a program outside Speakeasy’s three domestic offices. We ve also opened operational hubs delivering on-going open-enrollment programs in Hong Kong and India and we ve supplemented our three domestic offices with similar hubs in Boston, and Chicago.
Leadership is the end-game in all communication. And authenticity is the key. To be able to see another person, to connect, to motivate, and inspire is the base-line for every leader we develop. And it isn’t easy. It takes work to develop that kind of power, but the payoff is huge.

My kind of town Chicago.
Speakeasy is pleased to announce that our highly acclaimed, open-enrollment sessions, Talk So People Listen and Communicate To Drive Results, will now be available in Chicago on a regular basis.
The sessions will be held in the Historic Inland Steel Building in the heart of Chicago s central loop.
These programs represent a major opportunity for companies in Chicago and surrounding areas, to expose individuals rather than just full teams to the kind of focused communication development that is the foundation on which Speakeasy has built its 40 year reputation without the complications of travel.
“We launched programs in Amsterdam two years ago to serve business leaders across the world who recognized the value of communicating in multiple global theaters. Speakeasy Amsterdam is the product of the overwhelming response we received as we continue our global expansion.”
Speakeasy Opens Amsterdam office
After years of providing client-site programs worldwide, we re proud to announce the opening of a permanent office and learning environment in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The facility began full-time operations in the first quarter of 2015.
Speakeasy Amsterdam tackles the demand for greater access to programs voiced by clients across the European market. The permanent facility allows our clients with strong European presence access to regularly scheduled programs in our proprietary open-enrollment format – where communication learning moves to personal development and real communication behavioral change.
Powerful Communication. It’s how you get things done.
You know that powerful communication skills are essential to your success. That’s how you make things happen. It’s how you get results, how you move markets. and how you motivate both your prospects and your staff. It’s critical to effective leadership – to transferring knowledge and vision, inspiring others, and ultimately… driving the bottom line.
The truth is, it takes more than public speaking training or presentation skills to become a great communicator. It takes real work… not in changing who you are, but in becoming more of who you are. It’s a journey that begins when you get better connected to who you are and how the world sees you when you communicate,
and quickly moves to your openness to honestly connecting with others. Eventually you move beyond presentations and public speaking and learn to build trust – the foundation of effective leadership in today’s world.
Speakeasy’s individually-driven development curriculums, developed over almost forty years or global leadership in the communication training industry, are designed to open you up to the real possibilities that exist for you in the world of powerful connection-based communication.
