Global training and coaching consultants Speak First have been selected as the sole provider for the Indian School of Integrated Learning, an exciting new venture bringing innovative communication skills training to India.
Online PR News – 09-July-2009 – – Global training and coaching consultancy Speak First has been selected as the sole provider of communication skills training for the Indian School of Integrated Learning [ISIL]. This landmark venture is the first of its kind in India and was devised by Vijay Moza, the founder of the successful Indian clinical and management research centre CREMA.
Using the proven training methods of Speak First, the ISIL will be helping professionals and graduates develop essential soft skills. Speak First will provide expert consultancy on effective communication, presentation skills, personal impact training, media skills, interviewing techniques, cultural awareness and many more first-class soft skills solutions, which have already been tried and tested across the globe.
The Managing Director of Speak First, Amanda Vickers said, "India is a vibrant country brimming with potential. We are delighted to be involved with helping people develop much needed soft skills throughout India through our alliance with ISIL." The service will develop the skills of both graduates and corporate professionals seeking to improve their prospects and their business success.
It has been identified that many Indian graduates (around 25% of technical graduates and 15% of general graduates) are gaining essential qualifications and hard skills at university but lacking in communications skills essential to getting the right job. The ISIL will provide valuable training to students so they can develop these vital soft skills, making them more employable and better equipped to achieve their full potential.
With the business environment rapidly expanding in India, there is also huge demand for quality corporate communication skills training. There is also a lack of providers with the experience and expertise to give professionals the standard they require. The ISIL will be using both local and Western experienced trainers to provide communication skills training to individuals and organisations, helping them improve their business effectiveness. All the trainers, the content and the delivery methods will be of the usual Speak First quality; standards will not be allowed to slip.
Vijay Moza said, "We chose a partner in the UK, Speak First, who has got 20 years experience in high skills training and soft skills. Their philosophy and commitment is so high. Their track record shows that they've trained professionals from various fields."
Speak First already has trainers all over the world speaking a range of different languages, with a European Headquarters in London and an Asia Pacific headquarters in Auckland. This latest development is the next stage in their global expansion, providing innovative, practical and impactful communication skills and soft skills training across the world.
