Speakeasy Announces the Launch of SelfLink.com, an Online Micro-Learning Platform for Young Professionals

The business communication consultants at Speakeasy, Inc. have made a
unique online resource for new and young professionals looking to
accelerate their professional development

ATLANTA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Speakeasy, Inc., the leading global communication coaching and
professional development company, today announced the launch of SelfLink.com,
an online, micro-learning portal specifically designed to meet the
learning needs of up-and-coming working professionals. With
communication programs offered all over the world, and with offices in
Atlanta, San Francisco, New York and Amsterdam, Speakeasy is looking to
continue the communication development of young, new professionals by
leveraging the best in educational technology.

The online resources offered through SelfLink.com are designed to
harness the power of more effective personal communication in driving
real business results. Developed to meet the growing need of Millennials
to stay up-to-date on professional development topics, SelfLink was
created to serve a younger audience keeping their learning preferences
in mind. SelfLink’s micro-learning videos are aimed at moving learners
quickly from where they are to where they need to be in order to make
real contributions to their organizations. Each self-paced module within
the suite of courses on SelfLink.com is followed by a short survey to
best identify areas of strength, and highlight opportunities the learner
can utilize to improve his or her communication effectiveness.

“Today’s young professionals have grown up with more information, more
speed, more diversity, and more opportunity than any generation before,”
explained Kip Coombs, President, Speakeasy. “But one thing hasn’t
changed; powerful personal communication is still the critical link in
their journey toward success.”

Young professionals can register on SelfLink.com and receive instant
access to a full suite of short, micro-learning videos with fast-moving
quizzes and written coaching. The materials on SelfLink.com are all
designed to deliver the baseline communication awareness new young
professionals need to immediately begin contributing in a business
environment.

“After forty-two years, we’re very excited to deliver a scalable
learning experience appropriate for young professionals,” noted Scott
Weiss, CEO, Speakeasy. “SelfLink.com meets the growing demands of our
clients by providing readily accessible, effective, and at only $30 per
subscriber, extremely affordable professional communication development
tools. Now, all young professionals can tap into the communication
awareness they need to begin their careers with confidence and
authenticity.”

Speakeasy’s traditional in-person communication skills training classes
will continue, with new programs being offered in Chicago and Boston
through 2016. Although it was developed with young professionals in
mind, SelfLink broadens the professional and communication development
opportunities available through Speakeasy, and it serves as a unique
resource for professionals at all levels. By utilizing SelfLink.com,
business professionals will be able to tap into proven communication
program techniques, receive expert guidance, and access Speakeasy
