Silicon Valley houses professionals from all over the world who speak English with an accent that may be keeping them from advancing in their career.
Speaking clearly, concisely, and effectively with confidence is the key to unlocking many doors: in both business and personal relationships. In business you have technical presentations, technical overviews, sales presentations, stake holder meetings, teleconferences. The speaking opportunities increase as you advance in your company.
For further information on the influence your voice has on others, please take a look at a 2012 study by Quantified Impressions that was published in the Wall Street Journal. It was found that a person’s voice tone had two times more influence on the listener’s first impression than the message itself. And for example in the same article it was reported that CEOs with lower-pitched voices made on average $187,000 more than their higher-pitched counterparts.
In the business world having a heavy accent is often not mentioned, except by an aware manager in a performance review. However, it is acted upon in many subtle and not so subtle ways. See this example of Raj. (http://www.voicepowerstudios.com/blog/193-corporate-glass-ceiling.html)
