High-Stakes Presentation Coaching for Entrepreneurs

Private and team coaching for when the heat is on

Our job is to help you hone the delivery of your pitch deck. We generally assume that the deck is already in development, and our job is to help you fine-tune your slides and deliver them effectively. Regardless of the specific plan, the overarching goal of this work will be to assess and build on your existing skills to help you succeed. The issues targeted will be unique to your situation; however, the following is a list of what we typically work on.

Coaching Goals

  • Establishing audience-specific presentation outcomes
  • Streamlining and strengthening the pitch deck, including working with input from others
  • Honing slides to make them easy to deliver and understand
  • Engaging your audience in the conversation
  • Communicating effectively face-to-face, virtually, and in hybrid situations
  • Establishing trust with your audience
  • Ensuring a polished executive presence that is appropriate for you, your personality, and your brand
  • Delivering slides clearly and persuasively
  • Using virtual tools, including video, for maximum engagement
  • Remaining flexible while managing audience interactions
  • Identifying techniques to easily tailor presentations to specific audiences
  • Transferring these communication skills to situations other than investor presentations

During the coaching sessions, you will be recorded. The video will be reviewed immediately after it is made. Through this process, you’ll identify what’s working well and pinpoint areas to improve. This will help you achieve the personal insight you need to succeed. Through various exercises, you’ll explore skills and techniques that work for you.

We generally recommend a minimum of two to four sessions after the chemistry meeting. The number of additional sessions, if any, will be determined as we go along.

Communication Training Yields Business Results

We believe that business communication training must focus on business results: making work easier, employees more successful, workplaces more cooperative, and goals more attainable.

Getting Business Done and Growing Leadership Capability: Everything we do is designed to help people get business done and grow their capabilities. While a particular workshop may focus on a specific business goal—closing a deal, making a decision, learning something new, or gaining alignment—every workshop is designed to help the participants be more comfortable, effective, and confident communicators. When employees communicate more effectively, leadership capability increases and careers advance. This brings positive results to your team and company.

Private Coaching and Video Review: Capturing learners on video as they work on their real-life content, which is followed by video playback and coaching, is an essential element to this training. It helps learners understand their natural strengths (and weaknesses). As they grow their self-awareness, they can apply what they learn in coaching to the variety of situations they face outside of it.

Get the Conversation Started

The First Step

The first step in the process is a meeting between you (the entrepreneur) and one of our coaches. We call this conversation the “chemistry meeting.” It’s important to the success of the engagement that both parties are comfortable working together and mutual trust and respect are present. Following the chemistry meeting, goals of the engagement will be established, options will be discussed, and an action plan will be put in place.
