About Me

My Experience

Jill Slye teaches advance public speaking and executive communication to Harvard University Extension School graduate and undergraduate students. Jill teaches the Fundamentals of Basic and Advanced Public Speaking, and Executive Communication to diverse people from around the globe. Jill's twenty seven years of business experience in sales, management and marketing provides the basis for her understanding of her audience, and enhances her ability to relate to her clients and students.

My Approach

When presenting or speaking to large, medium or small groups many of us miss out on the opportunity to connect with our audiences through give and take. Public speaking is not a one-sided means of communication, but an effective exchange of information between two or more individuals. Jill Slye teaches her inspirational platform that takes public speaking to a new level of comfort, allowing the presenter to successfully reach the audience. In both individual and group settings, Jill coaches Leaders, Top Executives, Salespeople, Managers, High School and College Students, and others to successfully deliver their message.

Why A Sounding Board?

Communication is unique to each person. Being yourself and getting your message across, while trying to read feedback from an audience, can seem nearly impossible. By breaking the process down and helping you to develop your own comfortable style, the fear of public speaking can be overcome. The only barrier to successfully communicating with others is the one we create ourselves. I am excited to enthusiastically illustrate the successful roadmap to sharing your message and connecting with your audience.​

Using tools and techniques to become effective communicators is something we often forget to do.  In my classes, seminars, professional development programs and individual sessions we slow your world of communication down. We take the time to analyze your personal approach to communication, while working towards improving your weaknesses and building upon your strengths.
