MEET KIM LINSIDER
Kim D. Linsider understands the need for effective accent management on a personal level. As a child, her family moved to the United States from their native South Africa. Their new home, Atlanta, Georgia, proved to be a melting-pot of accents, and Kim learned first-hand how important barrier-free communication can be.
Growing up, she became determined to help others improve their speech and language skills and decided to pursue a career in Speech Pathology. As a Speech Pathologist, Kim first spent 4 years in the Atlanta Public School system working with children from pre-school through twelfth grade before transitioning to accent management and enhanced communication techniques for business and medical professionals.
In 2001, Kim completed her certification in the Compton P-ESL method of Accent and Dialect Reduction and began seeing clients across a wide range of specialties in the global business community, including Technology, Medical, Financial, Performaing Arts and Engineering. By specializing in accent management for verbal personal correspondence, Kim has been able to help hundreds of clients from around the world, including Asia, Europe, Africa, South America, and the United States, improve their verbal techniques during meetings, phone conversations and conference calls, corporate presentations, productions and even interviews. Through her unique teaching methods, Kim’s clients learn the skills they need to consistently improve their verbal communication techniques on an ongoing basis.
After several years as a corporate Accent Modification Trainer with a firm in Atlanta, Kim founded KDL Accent Advisors in 2011 and began catering to clients who needed access to training that would work around their busy schedules. Kim is currently working with clients across a wide variety of business, medical, educational environments and performing arts environments.
