Yoodli launches a free platform – developed by former engineers and product managers from Google, Facebook and Apple – to help people improve their speaking skills
Seattle, WA –News Direct– Yoodli
Yoodli launched her free platform to help people improve their speaking skills without the pressure of an audience. The technology, developed at the Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence, provides real-time analytics on your use of filler words, pacing, volume variation, and more. A demonstration video is available here.
âBuilding your speaking skills is like training a muscle,â says Yoodli co-founder Varun Puri. âThe same way we warm up before sporting events or calm our mind through meditation, we can train our body before speaking. At Yoodli, we believe that speaking preparation can be fun and stress-free. That’s why we’ve designed daily AI-powered drills to help people improve their speaking and impromptu interview skills.â
The National Institute of Mental Health reports that public speaking anxiety affects 73% of people; overcoming this fear helps build self-confidence and makes you stand out among your peers. Think of Yoodli as a smart mirror. It provides non-judgmental, real-time analytics so you can track measurable progress over time. And once you feel more confident, you can share your speeches with colleagues to get feedback from your peers directly through the platform. The process of preparing a speech doesn’t have to be lonely!
Yoodli has been used by a number of world renowned experts such as World Championship in Public Speaking award winner Craig Valentine. He says, âYoodli has saved me hundreds of hours by allowing me to easily collaborate with students. I use Yoodli with all my students and can’t imagine coaching without it.
Ed Tate is another world champion in public speaking and a regular participant in Toastmasters International speaking events. He says, âPreparing to speak is my jam. However, I hadn’t won our club’s impromptu public speaking contest (called âtable talksâ) in years. Since I started using Yoodli, I have won ‘table topics’ in my Toastmasters club three times in a row. Â»
Yoodli has an advisory team that includes TEDx trainers, speech professors at leading universities, and other global champions in public speaking. Investors include Madrona Venture Group, an early Amazon investor, and Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen’s Institute for Artificial Intelligence.
Yoodli is now available for free on laptops and desktops at www.yoodli.ai.
