New offering replaces Speakeasy’s popular SelfLink micro-learning platform, providing a robust update, enhancing the overall experience, and streamlining the company’s growing suite of online training programs
ATLANTA, November 17, 2022–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Speakeasy, Inc., a leader in global communication coaching and professional development, today announced a major update to its unique online learning platform designed for young professionals. Reacting to feedback from users of Speakeasy’s growing suite of SpeakeasyDIGITAL online learning platforms, the company has updated its popular SelfLink micro-learning platform and rebranded it First Impressions Count. With a specific focus on new and young professionals, First Impressions Count delivers a suite of learning resources and videos that aid in the development of foundational business communication that can be implemented in both virtual and in-person workplace settings.
Leveraging the best in educational technology, First Impressions Count offers users access to a series of self-paced modules, videos, and surveys outlining key learning points and tips. The courses focus on nine key communication areas, each including interactive resources designed to help identify strengths and highlight opportunities. The ultimate objective is for learners to improve their business communication, make a positive, lasting first impression, and enhance their contributions in the workplace.
“Many in-person workplace social connections and support networks were lost during the pandemic, so it became much harder for young working professionals to practice and adapt their skills,” said Scott Weiss, CEO, Speakeasy. “The silver lining the past few years provided for us was the opportunity to reassess our digital offerings and align them to what is most needed. First Impressions Count is one outcome of that. It does a better job than ever of teaching those who are early in their careers the basic but critical best practices about intentional and effective communication that will set them on a course for success, whether they are working from home or back in the office.”
Professionals can register on First Impressions Count and receive instant access via a private account to a full suite of short, fast-paced micro-learning videos. The learning suite is tailored so that users can track progress, apply skills, and conduct ongoing practice. Individual and multi-user packages are available. First Impressions Count harnesses proven learning techniques, guidance, and expertise informed by full-time, highly credentialed faculty with decades-long track records of success at Speakeasy, the 50-year global leader recognized for offering successful communications programs to thousands of professionals all over the world.
