7 New Ways to Stay Speech Savvy This Summer

Summer is finally at the doorstep. Picture yourself on pristine beaches, soaking in the sun with a tall glass of whatever-you-prefer in hand.

But what if you could still enjoy your tropical getaway or cozy campfire gatherings… while staying on top of your speech game and avoiding the infamous summer setback? Oh… and earning CEUs while you’re at it. Have you ever had such a productive summer without even leaving your house?

You’re invited to our all-new TalkTools Summer School. No, it’s nothing like the summer school that you hated when you were a kid. This is a cool school with hot topics.

Soak up the CEUs and indulge in a variety of innovative new content with our expert therapists. Our new live webinars are happening throughout June and July. Enjoy learning on your own time, from your location of choice… although, internet connection is required.

Oh, and when you register for 4 or more webinars, not only will you save 15%, but you’ll also gain complimentary access to our VIP webinar, an exclusive question-and-answer style webinar this August with one or more of our experts. Just use the code SummerSchool18 at checkout.

You will enjoy live interaction with the experts – but don’t worry, they won’t be able to see you. So feel free to participate while lounging at home in your pajamas.
