Communicate your vision

About

Target Talk was founded in 2011 by Masha Tarle, an English teacher turned Communication Consultant, living in Brussels, Belgium. It was the first consultancy specialised in communication coaching in Brussels, Belgium. The goal was to create a tailored service to help individuals and groups communicate more effectively. It was a time when PowerPoint was dominating communications, speeches had long been forgotten and everybody was excited by social media.

In the last ten years I have collaborated with other consultants but essentially, Target Talk is synonimous with Masha Tarle, and therefore a "one woman" enterprise.

What is Target Talk about really?Over the years I have perfected my own method:  "Communicate your Vision". I provide clients with honest and expert feedback on their communication, in an environment of trust and respect. When I work with teams, I create opportunities for people to connect. In workshops, people will enjoy learning together. In individual sessions, I help clients understand themselves better and stay focused and positive.

Target Talk doesn't have a catalogue of classical training courses for "anyone and everyone". The approach is based on listening to your concrete challenges and responding to your need through a tailored course and/or communication coaching package. However, most of the communication skills I teach are : public speaking and presentation skills, networking, interview skills, giving and receiving feedback, pitching, etc. 

What makes my communication coaching different?I combine my vocation as an English teacher, with my work experience in communication management and the creativity of theatre writing and directing. 

Who are my clients?
I help private companies, such as consultancies (but also international organisations and non-profits) get more business/clients by assessing their team's communication skills.  After understanding their needs, I will create a tailored training and coaching programme to help the team become convincing communicators.
I help individuals, at all levels of hierarchy, but especially those working or aspiring to be managers, to communicate more effectively, with authority and impact. I also enjoy helping those in engineering and technical professions who want to be heard, despite not feeling comfortable with chatting away at meetings. Most of my clients are "international" but I love helping those who struggle with English and who are working hard to create a place for themselves in today's very competitive job market.

Why work with me?
If you are a a manager, your top priority is to have employees and consultants who can represent your organisation in a professional way while building connections and getting new business. Your other priority is to have a good working environment where people can learn, receive feedback and contribute to your company's mission. This is where communication skills training and coaching can become a powerful tool.

If you are an individual client, looking for a communication coach, you know how important it is to have good communication skills in order to move your career to the next level. Working with me provides you with someone objective who can assess your style and provide concrete feedback on what you can do to improve, depending on your aims.

Masha Tarle

Communication Trainer and Consultant

Hi there! I am a bookish Croatian/Aussie/Spanish girl who loves to learn and teach communication strategy, skills and content.

Life took me from my hometown Zagreb to sunny Melbourne ( where I learned how to spell), to noisy Madrid ( where I learned how to dance) and then to rainy  Brussels where I live happily ever after.

I used to be a "real" teacher and that is why I carry around a bag with books, markers and fun activities.

Since 2008 I have worked as communication manager with a well-known politician, the European Commission, a PR agency, an non-profit and a lobby (in that order).  

At heart I am a communication architect, planning and building as many bridges between people as I possibly can.
