Who said Calgary isn’t an innovative city? We’ve got 1000’s of startups, dozens of co-working spaces, investors, mentors and most importantly a thriving community of people rallying around innovation in Alberta.

One of these exciting innovations is a highly-unique public speaking mobile app called Charisma Pro. We are working with Avnish Mehta, CEO of Stand & Command and public speaking coach who’s mentored TED Talk presenters, he’s keen to help entrepreneurs and business professionals get a standing ovation.

Charisma Pro is a personal public speaking coach that trains you to be a more effective communicator by measuring the pitch, frequency, and power of your voice and comparing you to well-known speakers. Essentially, giving you a score of the charisma and engagement in your voice. The app is ideal for business professionals and entrepreneurs looking to hone in on their presenting, pitching, and sales skills.

Avnish’s co-founder Michael Brougham is a Vocal Acoustician (Sound Scientist) who’s built the app’s back-end algorithm to assure analysis accuracy. He’s been studying the vocal track and how voice pitch influences our impression of people for many years. His sound science training commenced under a master of the Bel Canto method of singing at the University of Alberta.
