Speaker training and professional coaching require a small investment but its benefits are tremendous. We coach senior executives and professionals to find the right way to present their business and objectives across borders to sophisticated audiences of investors, financial analysts and the press.
We explore the relationship that exists between the speaker, the speech, and the audience. A speech, no matter how good, is not successful unless key messages have been well understood. A presentation is both articulated and influenced through the speaker’s actual performance on the day – his/her body language and speech – tone, pitch, and pace.
We review all the elements that make up public speaking and practise the message that will be delivered. The focus is on results and making a real impact. We work on all the elements that make successful communication and believe our involvement in training speakers is beneficial for three principal reasons.
Our team is highly experienced and specialized in the training of senior executives for IPO roadshows, Capital Markets Days and many other areas across numerous industries and geographies
Our expertise across a wide range of financial events gives us critical insight into expectations of the target audiences around the world. Positioning and getting the angle right are essential, our coaches offer a breadth and depth of perspective
Training timetables are typically very short and the use of video feedback helps to accelerate the results of our coaching. Our training methods make use of video-feedback – a tool that enables the speaker to review his/her performance immediately and to implement practical changes swiftly
Presenting with impact in the context of an IPO requires senior management to position the equity story just right. The exercise is highly codified and adapted across borders whilst maintaining the coherence of the data shared in the market.
Our team of specialists train you to be top of your game when it comes to delivering what you are about and the drivers of your company’s value.
It’s all about tempo, momentum and pace, strong team dynamics and making sure adequate time for Q&A is left, in order to establish a dialogue.
Making a good presentation is paramount as it directly affects a fund manager’s investment decision and an analyst’s impression. Good delivery is essential to achieving success. The content has to be right, but non-verbal communication is also very important. Technique and practice can help you make the right impact.
Capital Market Days are fundamental to investors and analysts understanding and valuing the company accurately. These bi-annual or tri-annual working sessions are taxing to your IR teams and senior-level management, especially those who do not go on the road regularly. To showcase the business in detail means engaging the audience and keeping up the presenters’ stamina throughout the day.
Equally these days are rich and rewarding for investors and analysts who attend and offer an opportunity to offer real insights into how the business is run.
The challenge for most companies is to present the thematic or deeper-dive aspects to help the market understand the financial guidance and what building blocks it rests on.
Our coaches work with the company presenters to meet the challenge. Whether on their delivery, their script or more generally navigating through the minefield of very precise questions that always emerge.
When it matters, many teams pitching for new business come together to prepare. The pitch is a specific type of presentation and takes on a number of possible formats.
Aside from showcasing key aspects of the business in a short time frame, the presenters need to build a compelling case that flows.
Focusing on the technical delivery (Use of voice, pause, transitions and signposting) and working as a team are key components of success.
Individuals can use coaching in managing stress and nerves, their individual approach, to use of support materials.
Our coaches work with you to hone and perfect your pitch, feel confident, and be ready to tackle the day itself.
In an M&A situation, making compelling management presentations goes a long way to boosting the process. Potential buyers who understand clearly the complexities and opportunities of a ‘target’s’ business model will have a much more accurate read on the value of the business and the drivers of its growth.
Our coaches help companies tackle these milestones whether across borders, with different cultural sensitives, across industries with their own deep specificities, we advise on the right message.
