Speechless and Propel are collaborating to support Propel members in maximizing their professional development through communications. The Speechless team is excited to provide value to the Propel community related to personal and professional branding, career transitions, and the next steps.

Speechless was co-founded by Alanna Olken and Julia Schwartz, who have worked at companies such as Bloomberg LP, Neuberger Berman, CNN, and various startups, where they helped lead successful communications, branding, and marketing strategies for the brands and executives. Speechless helps individuals own and tell their professional stories — whether it be through school or job applications, cold emails to networking prospects, resumes, or positioning new business ventures. They know how hard it is for people to talk about themselves and crystalize years of experience, and pride themselves on a highly personalized and collaborative process to learn and understand our clients’ voices, personalities, and stories before getting to work.

Speechless works with pre-professionals and professionals from around the country, including Google employees and entrepreneurs across many industries.
