Your accent impacts your business career. When a significant part of a job depends on being understood – a heavy accent can limit career opportunities. In today's business environment, it is critical to be able to communicate clearly and effectively with customers and peers. A regional accent or (non-English) foreign accent can distract the listener and prevent your message from being understood and/or taken seriously.

Communication is so vital to business success and poor communication skills can mask an individual's real capabilities. Hundreds of Speaking Skills clients found their value was more recognized once their communication skills improved.

It’s a known fact that people tend to judge a speaker’s level of education based on an accent.
