Shelley Goldbeck is a Thinker, Writer, Speaker, an avid reader and a lover of language.
One of Shelley’s pivotal moments was at a Toastmasters convention where she had difficulty understanding the Distinguished Toastmasters with English as a Second Language.
She immediately recognized the need for a service to help ESL people fine tune their pronunciation skills. A pilot project with classes and one-on-one coaching proved the value of the program. Accent Reduction Company was born.
Shelley is a Toastmaster and professional speaker who derives great joy from helping others improve their speaking and presentation skills.
