“I had just a few hours to attend the workshop before an important pitch meeting for my startup.  I was able to communicate technically complex ideas in ways they could easily understand.

The meeting turned a prospect into a pilot program, and I am in talks with several folks about investing.”

“Before my pitch consultation, I was focused on my nonprofit’s history instead of the future potential.

I applied the messaging framework to refine the marketing materials and my pitch.

The results? Better relationships with community partners who can see the benefit of joining forces.”
