WHO WE ARE

Thanks for checking us out! I’m Amber Nelson, the ringleader here at The Lingo Institute. I’ve been happily building this language and leadership company since 1997.  My team and I are  dedicated to helping our clients build a strong communication foundation to increase their reach, maximize their impact, and meet their business goals. 

My favorite part of this work is helping people find their words. I believe, unequivocally, that words matter. What we say and how we say it defines who we are and can lead us to who we want to be. It’s the connection between language and leadership that inspires me every day.
