The Speech Fitness® Institute (SFI) is a 3-4 day corporate retreat focusing on leadership, team building and executive communication skills.

Each day there will be a variety of activities scheduled. The range of scheduled activities is broad, but there is one common thread — they are all designed to loosen the mind, unlock each person’s individuality and work toward becoming a more mindful, effective, prepared and confident personal and professional communicator.

The benefits of such an elevated level of performance are countless, particularly in a corporate environment where trust, leadership and accountability are constantly called into question. Traditional business savvy is not enough anymore.

Corporate leaders need to connect (internally and externally). They need to trust their own instincts. The holistic SFI experience puts them back in touch with those instincts.

There are a maximum of 6 participants per trainer to ensure that each individual is able to work directly with coaches to vastly improve his/her leadership and communication skills.


To train and inspire CEOs, Senior Executives and Decision Makers to be better leaders and communicators by creating an open forum for discussion and learning, fostering an environment of trust, and working with individuals to explore and expand their own personal style.


We believe in a true mind-body-spirit approach to communication. In order to harness your inherent abilities as a communicator, particularly in high-stakes situations, you must have three things:

  • A cognitive understanding of key communication skills and techniques
  • Physical strength and wellness
  • A sense of inner balance and clarity

These are precisely the principles that the Speech Fitness® Institute was born of, and, incidentally, why we decided to host the Institute in the beautiful and majestic Rocky Mountains.


Please join me for a Corporate Retreat in the Rockies!!

Get your body, mind and SPIRIT “shaped up” for maximum performance. Tune in to nature while “tuning up” your communication.
