More impact when delivering technical presentations
Alex came to us as a confident and experienced speaker who regularly made presentations to the senior leadership team within his company.
Despite his experience, Alex felt the data-heavy presentations he gave lacked impact. He wanted to be able to communicate technical information to the board in a way that would be memorable and engaging.
We first devised a coaching schedule that included both face-to-face and virtual sessions, meaning we could help Alex to communicate effectively in any setting.
Delivery-wise, we helped Alex to break out of the traditional “corporate speaking style” that boxes most people in – expanding his use of gestures, physicality and vocal tonality to begin expressing himself with genuine enthusiasm and energy.
We then turned to the content and structure of Alex’s presentations, finding ways to use storytelling, metaphor and emotion to transform dry topics into speeches that would capture (and hold) the attention of his executive audiences.
This combined focus on both the content and delivery style of Alex’s presentations meant he was able to make a real step-change in his ability to communicate with influence and impact.
Before our final session was done, Alex had already received comments from his colleagues, who had begun to noticed his new-found charisma when speaking.
