For Report Writing and Presentation Preparation Services...
During any given week, we're likely to be crafting a crucial, career-influencing report for some client, somewhere in the world. And we've done it successfully hundreds of times before. We truly understand how humans process complex information and, regardless of your function, topic or industry, we know exactly what an audience expects in a focused, cogent business presentation that makes its point with clarity and impact. And, if need be, we can make it happen on an expedited schedule.
For Presentation Training...
While we've mastered the techniques and tools necessary to communicate complex information to an audience of "non-experts," we're excited to share that knowledge and experience. We've taken our "black box" of insights and distilled it down into a series of dynamic training programs that can help you and your team succeed brilliantly on your own. We teach you the critical skills you need to achieve the same superior results we achieve day in and day out.
Here's a list of the aspects of our training programs our clients tell us they appreciate most.
Our training programs appeal to both beginners and highly experienced presenters – Everyone we teach gets something out of the experience. Beginners learn the basics; more experienced professionals learn critical communication subtleties that will have a profound impact on their overall effectiveness. See our rave reviews...
We help you get traction in the executive suite. If you want to sit at the strategy table, you can't give tactical presentations. We show you how to get a seat at the strategy table, so you're not just the "people with the stats" who just "visit" the strategy sessions.
We offer a strong value proposition: Your cost per participant for our customized training programs is about the same or less than you'd pay for a standard, off-the-shelf training program – if you could find one as advanced as ours. Once you've experienced one of our programs, if you're like virtually all our clients, you'll go on to do other programs with us.
Many clients have added us to their on-going training schedule, a testament to the superior results and value we offer.
We travel to you for on-site training programs so your team saves valuable work time – and you save the substantial cost of travel, food, and lodging.
Our teaching style plays to rave reviews – our seminars are full of relevant content, highly interactive and fun. We enjoy sharing our expertise and our highly pragmatic insights. Best of all, we welcome challenges and invite discussion and debate to enhance the learning environment. We believe involved people retain more of what they've learned.
We train the best and the brightest – we've helped everyone from bright young analysts and consultants to experienced CEOs enhance their ability to engage an audience and get the desired results. And we've done it thousands of times.
We teach what works – not what should work. What clients like best about our programs is that they're customized to their experiences and their situations. Plus, the teaching is pragmatic, relevant and focused on real world issues you encounter everyday.
For example, we don't tell researchers in San Francisco, "Pretend you're the manager of a bottling plant in Georgia..." That's not relevant to them. And so we don't do it. Instead we say, "Pretend you're about to present really controversial research findings to the CEO and their direct reports..." They don't need to pretend – they've been in this situation before and know how badly it can go if you don't position it carefully. And we teach them how to be better prepared than anyone else.
We know the executive mindset because we've lived in the executive suite, we work in the executive suite (as coaches to new and aspiring executives), and we've presented successfully to executives for over 25 years. This isn't our first rodeo.
