My conversational style needed a lot of work – I spoke too fast and had a strong Brazilian accent so my British and American colleagues found me impossible to follow in English. I knew I could not progress in my career beyond my position (I was Regional Director for Europe) unless I changed my style radically. You recognised that I was fluent, grammatical and confident in English but you also identified and analysed the elements that caused difficulty.

My speech went extremely well, I used your technique of underlining the words I wanted to emphasis, and managed to speak in an controlled and clear manner. So good actually that I had people coming to me after my speech and complementing me on it, some even mentioning that my English had improved since last time they heard me talk in public. Couple of hours later I then found out that I managed to beat my opponent in the elections — I’m sure that the speech helped greatly there.

I really appreciate you because no-one ever helped me improve my pronunciation like you do.
