En Pointe Communication was born from decades of sales and presentation experience, corporate coaching and training, and a tenacious dedication to human behavior research.
In 2005 our founder was at the top of her sales game, winning more accounts and inspiring more audiences than she ever dreamed possible. And then her world as she knew it stopped spinning. Her daughter was struck with a traumatic brain injury that has been exacerbated ever since, by years of epileptic seizures. Our founder, Tara Heaton, put her career on the back burner and devoted her time and savings to healing her child.
Through this trying process, Tara became a student of the human brain. She first learned the biology. Then as her daughter’s abilities continued to deteriorate, she devoted her research to human behavior. She became enraptured with how we learn and how our brain structure and chemistry determine our every choice.
At the same time, Tara still had a business to run. She faced a reality. She had to teach others to grow sales and take care of her beloved customers. This was the catalyst to the discovery of Momentum Method and the creation of En Pointe Communication. During this time, Tara saw her philosophy prove true as she coached young professionals to communicate, present and sell with authenticity. She was also devoted to helping people discover their unique gifts. With the science of human behavior as evidence, Tara embraced communication as art and sport. Tara taught, modeled, challenged and collaborated with individuals to discover their honorable purpose and their unique gifts, giving them the ability to gain momentum, influence audiences, close sales and impact lives.
It was through this experience, that Tara discovered her own core mission:
To Help People Generate Success Through Purpose and Passion
In an effort to deliver on this mission, Tara sold her business in 2013. She went to work in the corporate setting as a sales and presentation coach. She continued to guide, to teach, and to challenge professionals to discover their gifts, to share powerful, relevant stories, and to articulate with on-point clarity, their mission and value. She helped professionals connect with authenticity and to influence audiences of all sizes.
In 2018, Tara knew it was time to take her mission to new heights. She has aligned years of research with years of experience to develop a proven communication and sales philosophy that is natural and obtainable. It is beyond a scientific, single formula. It pulls the art from each speaker and infuses sport into their game.
Tara’s focus and En Pointe’s function is to help sales people, speakers and anyone with a powerful story, generate success through purpose and passion. Building confidence and ability within people delivers on this mission every time. And when someone is passionate about their work, the result is unprecedented success!
