THE REAL CURRENCY OF COMMUNICATION

You are constantly judged. The way you walk into a room and deliver a message dramatically impacts your success. Research out of Wharton School of Business found professionals with charisma are 5 times more successful than their competitors. 

Unlike most communication trainers which offer surface fixes, UP increases success by changing the entire way professionals think about communication.

Based in the study of human behavior, UP trains in the actual mediums of communication:

  • thought patterns/word choice
  • body language/vocal tone
  • relationship dynamics
  • business communication strategy

This method brings out a professional’s most powerful, precise and authentic self.  It is highly effective for in-person communication, on camera work, executive presence in leadership roles and to train new company practices. 

UP teaches group workshops, coaches individuals, and creates Train-the-Trainer programs for companies to facilitate their own internal training.

The UP Method


The UP Method


unlock the inner mechanics of connection

The #1 false belief about communication development is that there’s one right answer for everyone. General rules like, “Stop moving your hands” don’t work. One person’s bad habit is another’s key to success.

UP precisely diagnoses the communication challenges of an individual or group, including body language/vocal tone, speaking and writing habits, and story structure. UP then customizes an efficient program to solve the problem.   

UP achieves concrete, sustainable results for senior to junior executives through The UP Method, a systematic integration of acting training techniques, the science behind communication, and marketplace expertise.


Why marketplace expertise? 

We have frontline experience.

P&Ls, Revenue Goals, Brand Building, Consultative Sales, Leadership, Strategic Planning, Negotiations. We understand the challenges you face.

Why the science of communication? 

We speak from knowledge.

Scientific research offers tremendous insights into how people learn, build relationships and make decisions. We apply this information to create training that works.

Why acting techniques? 

We transform how you show up.

Proven acting techniques shift habitual behavior in your mind, body and voice to create charisma, and train professionals in the nuances of verbal and non-verbal signals.

How Training Works


How Training Works


A CREATIVE APPROACH TO DELIVERING HIGHLY EFFICIENT TRAINING

UP Business Communications creates customized solutions for companies’ training needs. Nothing is a cookie-cutter program. UP conducts extensive pre-work and gains management input to properly target participants' skill level and unique challenges. UP's laser focus on your problem allows for highly efficient training.

UP’s interactive approach harnesses how people actually learn, a balance of thinking and doing, to generate lasting results. 

 UP programs generally fall into four areas:

  1. One-on-one training for senior and C level employees.
  2. Large group two-hour workshops for 20-200+ participants which focus on one key area of learning.
  3. Small group, highly interactive workshops which often occur in a series of 3 to 5 sessions over a period of time. These comprehensive programs include Diagnostics, homework between sessions and real-time coaching as needed. 
  4. Train-the-Trainer programs where UP learns the specific subject matter and develops a comprehensive training program to teach the trainers how to lead the workshop and train the program.
