Do you sometimes struggle to share your thoughts and ideas smoothly and clearly in professional or social situations? Do you feel like your career or social life has been limited because you hold back even when you have something brilliant to say?
If so, then take a deep breath and release it. You're about to learn a systematic approach to retraining yourself to feel calmer, be more confident and speak smoother. You'll feel free to say what you want when you want in a way that people will want to listen to you.
My name is Michael Williams and for the past several years I've been working with professionals like you helping them literally transform the way they communicate. We're not just talking about tips and tricks here. We're talking about people who have struggled with:
- low speaking confidence
- fast, choppy speech
- stuttering or stammering
For more than 25 years I stuttered, well into my adulthood. So I know what it's like to feel trapped inside your own head, not being able to say what you want when you want. I know how it feels to feel limited and hold back especially when you have a great idea or valuable input.
I designed this course to help you change your pattern of speaking and thinking so that you can:
- feel calmer
- be confident
- speak smoother
As a full-time Speech and Presentation Coach, I've worked with hundreds of clients one-on-one from around the world, many of whom are multilingual. And, I've been able to help them take their speech, career, and personal lives to the next level with much of the information I'm going to share in this course.

Here's an extensive comment from someone taking my Pro90d Self-Study:
"Hello, Sir. As I continue to work through this, I am experiencing more and more successes and expecting more of them. I never take huge steps. I take small steps every day but do maintain consistency, which I think is the top key to success. Two days back, I was supposed to read a passage aloud in front of some of my colleagues, which I hated before. But I continued to tell myself consistently " I love reading aloud and I am an absolute genius at it."
Not only that, I used all the appropriate techniques and strategies e.g extending some words and blending them and I maintained a smooth and relaxed rhythm. And I pulled up a picture of Sir Michael and supposed that he was reading, so I also modeled him. 75% of that reading went relaxed and smooth, which was much better than my past experiences of reading aloud.
Moreover, I am also constantly improving upon my conversations, and the past week I had many successes on the phone and even on face to face conversations. I am really very happy. Thank you, Sir Michael."

What does it really feel like to speak smoothly? You might already know what it feels like to speak in a rushed, hurried and choppy manner. Now imagine the opposite of that. Let's discuss how it feels to speak smoothly and two specific skills you can develop to help you speak this way.
We often use the word articulation, when technically we mean enunciation. However, in keeping with the common usage of this word, we'll continue to use articulation to mean speaking or saying what you want to say with clarity. This video will define articulation and discuss what it means to articulate.
"Finishing Your Words" is a term you probably haven't heard before. But it comes from my work with clients who struggle with speaking smoothly and clearly. Finishing your words is a technique you can immediately use to slow your speech down if needed, and articulate more clearly.
One of things you can do to relieve some of the pressure when explaining or presenting your thoughts or ideas is to use a basic framework or structure to organize your thoughts and words. This alone can help you speak more clearly and confidently. Let's see how this works in this video.
Changing the way you speak is all about changing your speaking patterns or habits. This can be one of the most challenging things you ever do. T.R.A.C.K. can help you do this much easier than without it. In this session we'll take a look at the "T" in track. This is one of THE most important strategies in the entire system.
We often tend to default to negative thinking. That is, we focus on what we did wrong or how little we're improving rather than on our incremental progress or what we did well. In this session, we'll discuss how to change this pattern of thinking.
Everything you do is accumulating. It's either moving you in the direction you want to travel or away. If you want to smooth out your speech there are some steps you'll need to take consistently to move you in that direction. Want to know what they are? Let's discuss them in this video.
Sometimes we set unrealistic expectations for ourselves. And, when these expectations go unfulfilled, we become disappointed and give up. However, when set realistic ones, then we're far more likely to stay motivated and stick in there until we see success. This can make the difference between our achieving our goal or not. This session will provide you some tips to help you set expectations that accumulate and motivate.
Here are 5 major benefits you can experience when you put into practice what you've learned in this course. These are huge and can make your professional and personal life so much richer you won't believe it. Let's see what these 5 benefits are and how you can experience them as quickly as possible.
