Abbott Communications, founded in 1990 by Katherine Abbott, is a training and coaching company located in the San Francisco Bay Area. We call ourselves a boutique company because we are small and deliver high-quality training and coaching programs designed to the specific need of your company. Our clients represent a broad range of corporate interests.

We help you leverage the expertise already present within your organization by training your subject matter experts SMEs how to communicate more effectively in the classroom, at the conference, at the meeting, one-on-one or over the Web.

The skills your subject matter experts learn from our workshops and coaching sessions will prepare them to communicate their expertise in any situation. For example:


  • Train the Trainer skills - Your SMEs can be the software trainers for the implementation of your new business system such as Oracle or SAP. They already know your companies business processes and they will be the software support people after the implementation is done.
  • Presentation skills - Your SMEs can be your conference speakers. They are the experts of your company and need to be the speakers to deliver the company information.
  • Meeting Management skills - Your SMEs can be the facilitators of their own meetings when they need to share their new research, programs, tools, updates, software, policies and procedures.
  • Communicating Remotely - Your SMEs can communicate effectively by teleconference, video-conference and over the Web.

All of our trainers have been in the training business for over 15 years. We have all been "in the trenches," so we teach from a practical point of view. We travel internationally to deliver our programs.
