Target Talk was founded in 2011 by Masha Tarle, an English teacher turned Communication Consultant, living in Brussels, Belgium. My first goal was to create tailored training and coaching to help individuals and groups communicate more effectively. It was a time when PowerPoint was dominating pubic speaking and speeches had long been forgotten. Everybody was excited by social media and the digitalisation of communication.
What is Target Talk about really?
Over the years I have perfected my own method aimed at achieving "Communication Fluency" in professionals. I provide clients with honest and detailed feedback on their communication, in an environment of trust and respect. When I work with teams, I create opportunities for people to connect and collaborate better. In individual sessions, I help clients understand themselves better and stay focused and positive.
The "Communication Fluency" approach is based on listening to your concrete challenges and responding to your needs through a series of tailored workshops and/or communication coaching package. You can achieve communicate fluency by taking workshops on soft skills, such as:
- Public Speaking Essentials
- English Fluency for Presentations
- Strong and convincing arguments
- Networking skills ( jobseekers, employees, self-employed)
- Interview skills (e.g. competency job interview- especially the EU Assesment Centre)
- Professional Etiquette for the Workplace
- Navigating Office Politics ( dealing with difficult people and situations)
- Pitching an idea or service
- Perfect e-mail communication
- Train the Trainer
- Facilitating workshops
- Executive Presence
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.
