What Speaker Services Unlimited’s clients say: 

"This is the 5th year I've had to make a presentation to the Board and I have to say this time I was the most comfortable and the presentation was the most powerful. The direction you gave me during the two hours we spent together was absolutely priceless. 
I have attended many self-help seminars and listened to cassettes constantly and I do believe that you have a unique perspective and that anyone who has a message to communicate could learn something from your perspective...I can personally vouch for time spent with you as being a tremendous investment. Thank you."
-Sebastian Triscari
President
Triscari Productions, Inc. 

"Through my lessons (private coaching) with Dr Dilip, I learned some of the basic ingredients of communication skills--articulation, organization, delivery, connecting with an audience, etc....I became a better teacher as a result...I can say for sure that my lectures have improved and I am able to better communicate with my students in my classes. I highly recommend him to anyone interested in improving communication and leadership skills."
-Ratna Nandakumar
Professor, University of Delaware

"As a marketing specialist, some of my responsibilities include communicating and developing marketing and merchandising courses for our growers. Dr. Dilip helped me turn my fear of public speaking into a more positive, manageable experience. My department allowed me to enroll in several private sessions from Dr. Dilip. Dr. Dilip is a wonderful teacher and someone I would highly recommend as an instructor for public speaking, motivational, and management courses. He has a great personal style and gives much positive reinforcement to his students. He genuinely cares about people and is very empathetic with their fears of public speaking. I feel I have grown as a professional in my current position because of him."
-Rebecca C. Moody
Marketing Specialist

Voice Coaching

The quality of your voice conveys a perception to your listeners: a perception about your authority, your energy, your confidence, and even your health. If your voice is not what you want it to be, the good news is that with training, the quality of your voice can be improved. Learn how the human sound apparatus works and how you can utilize it more effectively to build richness, resonance, authority, and energy in your voice. You may need voice coaching if you answer “yes” to any of the following questions:

  • Does your voice sound shrill or nasal?

  • Does your voice sound gravelly?

  • Do listeners frequently ask you to speak up?

  • When you speak, do you frequently produce hissing sounds (sibilance)?

  • Does your voice sound flat – with no resonance in it?

  • Does your voice get tired easily?

  • Do you sometimes run out of breath when you speak?

Note that Dr. Dilip does not offer singing lessons, nor does he correct speaking disorders, although he will be happy to refer you to experts in those areas. Voice coaching is focused on improving the quality of your voice.

" I really gained confidence in speaking to an audience. I am no longer afraid to speak up in class. I am much more comfortable with the sound of my voice, (Dr. Dilip) was great...He seemed to know how to fix any problem I had and helped me feel more confident."
- Kaitlyn Hamm
Student, Broadcasting
Elizabethtown College

"Dr. Dilip was very patient and encouraging. If an exercise was not working for you, he quickly changed gears and came up with another one. I learned how to control my voice and change it to be appropriate in different situations. I also learned the fundamentals of breathing and why it's important (for voice production)."
- Toni Montgomery
Community Relations Coordinator
AmeriChoice FSU

Performance Coaching

Performance coaching refers to hands-on education and training given to improve one’s performance in any endeavor that depends upon attitude, commitment, skill, and will. This includes sales, customer service, leadership, athletics, sports competition, and educational learning. You will learn how to tap your inner potential to rise to higher levels of performance and results. Dr. Dilip uses his communication and sales expertise as well as techniques involving Neuro-linguistic Programming, meditation, Time Line Therapy, mind mapping, role playing, Kaizen, and video feedback.

"Excellent. Dr. Dilip is quite knowledgeable on the subject of human behavior and what makes a person do what they do. The role playing was extremely effective and the feedback was valuable. It helped me work at overcoming my fears and phobias."
- Dian Bishop, Realtor
Jack Gaughan ERA

"Dr. Dilip comes across very genuine and understanding., always making sure his advice and thoughts are understood when we are in a session. I gained the most from multi-sensory imagery. This helped me because it gives great confidence and preparedness before I attend work each day. It clears and focuses my whole day. Also, organization and tracking my progress (helped)."
- Carl Sims, Sales Consultant
Sutliff capital Ford

"Quality of highest level; structured; worked on weakness of my presentation, not just agenda. (I gained) benefits in organization of material, structure of speech and presentation, and understanding how and what to look for in response from audience."
