A government research agency’s senior executive needed to present to the Institute of Accountants to explain the benefits of FinTech. The executive has an unparalleled understanding of the technical realm, but required assistance bringing his presentations to life.
A half-day intensive coaching session was arranged to work on the presentation deck and delivery. The pre and post videos show a marked improvement; subsequent feedback was given online; and both the executive and his colleagues agreed that the presentation delivered was beyond their expectations.
The training director at a trading company required assistance polishing her presentation for a board briefing where she was to explain why a new training direction was required and how it was to be rolled out.
An intensive coaching session was arranged a couple of days before the presentation. The materials were extensively rewritten, and the delivery worked upon focusing on how the company would benefit as opposed to the strengths of the training.
The briefing was delivered successfully, and the company is now following the new training direction.
A C-suite member of a Hong Kong bank needed strategies to overcome the divergent tactics of her European colleagues.
Over a series of sessions AH coached her to sell her message more effectively and use body language to her advantage.
This resulted in a more commandeering and impactful presence when the executive next attended European meetings. AH was retained to help prepare for subsequent presentations and critical meetings.
