With over 20 years of communication experience and over a decade of focused business communication study and teaching, Connie Sirois brings knowledge and techniques that clients can apply immediately to make a difference in their conversations or their boardroom presentations. She knows that, no matter the industry or position, communication matters, and excellent communication sets one apart. Therefore, as a business communication coach and consultant, she tailors her expert advice to the individual client to create a communicator who captivates.
Her knowledge of how effective communication can transform a business drives her passion for coaching her clients, and she loves dissecting a communication situation with a client and developing a plan that takes the basic concepts of excellent business communication and brings them to bear in ways that both engage the audience and elevate the communication effort.
Expectations and best practices change over time. As a long-time business communication expert, Connie has learned these changes, taught these changes, and implemented these changes. She has a deep understanding of how business communication works and what clients and colleagues expect. From this experience, she helps her clients hone their skills to create impressive, impactful, and engaging communications.
Connie’s communication expertise spans several areas of communication theory. In addition to her decades of professional development as a university instructor, Connie has a bachelor’s degree in mass communication (emphasis public relations 1996), a master’s degree in English (emphasis rhetoric and composition 2001), and an Elite Life Coach certification from The Coach Mindset (2013).
