Highly customized options to complement your speaker training.
Sometimes You Just Need More
Need some one-on-one coaching? We have you covered. Want to tweak your slide deck? We can help. Have a critical training program coming up? We’ll help you prepare. You just focus on the goal – and we’ll help you get there.
Go beyond the classroom. Take your presentation skills to the next level.
Communication coaching enables you to receive immediate, in-the-moment feedback. In our one-on-one sessions, we work with individuals to increase personal awareness, develop key messages, incorporate audience-engagement strategies, establish immediate rapport with an executive presence, and more. Each coaching session centers on your agenda and your personal growth plan, enabling you to focus on key growth areas and see immediate results.
One-on-One Services Include
- Executive & Leadership Coaching
- Message Development
- Content Review & Feedback
- Sustainability Coaching
This three-month program is designed to continue the practical knowledge and skill mastery developed during a workshop or personal coaching session. Throughout this follow-up period, your EDC coach is available to you and your team to provide suggestions, skill ideas, and tips by both phone and email. During your regularly scheduled phone coaching sessions, you can develop, rehearse, and practice a message for an upcoming presentation. Because there is no limit to the number of people on these calls, you can hand-select individuals you think would benefit most.
Captivate your audience with your story.
A carefully crafted message is the foundation for an audience-centered presentation. We help you take your content and turn it into an engaging story that not only keeps the attention of your audience, but ensures they walk away remembering your key points.
Visuals are a powerful piece of your presentation. Your slide deck can either reinforce your message or distract your audience. Through designer tips and best practices, your visuals can be the final polish needed for an unforgettable presentation.

Ad Board Moderation
When moderating ad boards, our trainers establish and maintain an organized, upbeat environment ideal for productive collaboration.
We start by working with you to develop a discussion guide based upon organizational goals. On the day of the meeting, we’ll outline clear parameters for the day, set expectations, and encourage a buy-in from the group on these agenda goals. Throughout the meeting, our moderators continually inspire participation from everyone involved. A big part of our purpose is to help clarify and contextualize the group’s feedback so it fits within the framework of your mission. We check in with you throughout the discussion to ensure that the responses of the group work toward your objectives. After the meeting, we debrief and assist in clarifying the themes and lessons of the day. Putting all the communication skills we teach into practice, we’ll ensure a targeted discussion and all-around smooth experience for all parties involved.
- Organize: We formulate a discussion guide for the meeting based upon your organizational objectives.
- M.C.: We play timekeeper and interviewer, co-piloting the experience with you [the client] to ensure a smooth flow of discussion. We’ll set clear expectations for the meeting, and elicit buy-ins on organizational goals through targeted questions.
- Facilitate: As we guide the discussion, we will clarify and contextualize the feedback. Our style of communication encourages contributions from all participants, but can also manage personalities as needed.
- Calibrate: We’re always willing and ready to adjust the target of the discussion based upon your preference, and will regularly check in with you to ensure the discourse is valuable.
- Debrief: After the meeting, we’ll help clarify and process the information gathered.
Bottom line — We set expectations, illuminate intentions on behalf of all parties, and inspire positive, goal-oriented participation.
