What makes some people connect exceptionally well with clients, interviewers, and other critical audiences?
With the right kind of coaching, just about anyone can step into challenging situations and, in a few minutes, gain authentic trust, a human connection, and a desire to do business together—even with total strangers.
It’s a set of skills, not an innate talent, charisma, or magic. The skills are teachable; you, like most people, already possess them to some extent and use them selectively.
I specialize in one-on-one and team coaching to help people like you develop these skills for when you need them in interviews, presentations/pitches, negotiations, and other conversations that have important business consequences for you. I work with many kinds of people, everyone from recent graduates to senior career-changers and company CEOs… introverts and extroverts… people with presentation experience as well as people who face these situations with dread.
Unlike many consultants in this field, I come from a marketing and commercial background rather than the human resources/training world. As a New Business Director, I ran several hundred pitches for advertising agencies, PR firms, and other communications companies. As an international Creative Director, I developed award-winning and business-building campaigns. I’ve advised communications teams of major pharmaceutical and health care companies. And I wrote The Pitch Book, a definitive guide for how to plan and conduct a major business presentation.
