Who is this client?
Timothy is a bilingual speaker of Cantonese and English. As a project manager, this client had the key responsibility to:
- Plan, organize, and direct the completion of specific projects for an organization.
- Ensure company projects are completed on time, on budget and within scope.
- Be able to deliver interactive presentations and motivate team members.
- Speak to other people about ongoing projects and assign tasks.
Due to his work environment, Timothy wanted to speak more clearly and confidently in these professional situations.
What were his goals?
Timothy faced a common problem that is shared by many Native English speakers, the tendency to uptalk, which happens when statements rise at the end to sound like a question. As a result, the information he presented often appeared to be unimportant, as he sounded like he was uncertain of himself.
How did Speak Fluent's Speech- Language Pathologist help Timothy?
In order to address these problems, Timothy worked with one of our Speech-Language Pathologists to improve his articulation and intonation patterns. After two sessions, Timothy successfully achieved 100% accuracy in using the falling intonation at the end of a sentence. After using our services, our client was able to speak more clearly and confidently in a professional setting.
