Atlanta, GA – May 18, 2016

Speakeasy, Inc., one of the leading global communication coaching and professional development companies has recently 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 with 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 their communication effectiveness.

“Today’s young professionals have grown up with more information, more speed, more diversity and more opportunity than any generation before.” explains Kip Coombs, President of 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 begin contributing in a business environment, from day one.

Scott Weiss, Speakeasy CEO says: “After forty two years, we’re very excited to deliver a scalable learning experience appropriate for young professionals.  SelfLink.com is readily accessible, it’s effective, affordable, and meets the growing demands of our clients. Now, all young professionals will be able to tap into the communication awareness they need to start their careers with the right tools.”

Speakeasy’s traditional in-person communication skills trainings will continue, with new programs being offered in Chicago and Boston through 2016. To broaden the professional and communication development opportunities available through Speakeasy, Selflink serves as a unique resource for professionals, at all levels.
