1-on-1 or team
Knowing our stuff and being able to do the job are a given when it comes to major pitches or keynote speaking. The challenges are in being crystal clear with our message; building credibility, trust and rapport; differentiating ourselves and our idea/proposal; and making it engaging. Presentation Consulting is a service for presenters when maximum control, clarity and confidence are required.
If it’s a team presentation, get the team together to Project Plan the preparation and rehearsal process and diarise all face-2-face catch ups. If you’re on your own, all the easier!
For a team presentation, decide on your overall message and broad structure before allocating speakers, research and preparation work. If you’re on your own, is there any research or preparation that can be delegated?
He who does his audience research best wins. Know who you’re speaking to, who the decision makers are, how their internal politics work, what their drivers are, their targets, concerns and preference for information delivery.
‘I have worked with Carolyn a number of times, particularly in relation to conference presentations. I have found her approach to be very flexible and she tailors her assistance according to the particular needs and circumstances.
The passion she has for her job and her clients is an important ingredient in the outcomes she achieves. I value the support and assistance Carolyn has provided me over a number of years very highly.
I have encouraged many of my colleagues to work with her and would unhesitatingly recommend her to others.’Tax Partner, PricewaterhouseCoopers
