Imagine speaking confidently, clearly, and directly. Imagine running and attending effective meetings where no one’s time is wasted. Imagine eliminating costly, embarrassing misunderstandings. Imagine accomplishing your goals efficiently and through consensus. At The Latimer Group, we believe that all this is possible. We believe that anyone can be a clear, effective, persuasive communicator once they have the right tools.
We coach with respect. We know that everyone can become more confident, but we understand that not everyone is there yet. We create a secure, nurturing environment, where even the most nervous speaker can feel safe to take a risk.
Our vision is empowerment. We approach every teaching opportunity as a chance to empower people to share their stories, to listen and learn from others, and to build respectful relationships with both colleagues and clients. Participants in our workshops become more persuasive, approach their work more confidently, and inspire better communication among their colleagues.
“This was the most effective communication workshop I have ever had.”

“This is one of only a few workshops that I have taken where I have learned something about myself that I can now go connect and apply to enhance me in my career.”
At The Latimer Group, we know that the best way to teach is to listen first. We begin by getting to know our clients and their needs. Then we create customized, dynamic content that addresses their communication goals.
- Small-group workshops

Whatever your needs, our core philosophies and key differentiators remain the same.
