Please note the time change - 1 pm

Here are the details! What's your response when someone asks what you do? If you immediately get that deer-in-the-headlights sensation, this session is for you. Even if you think you've got your spiel in hand, this is your chance to refresh and reframe your pitch to make sure it's working as hard for you as it should. In this interactive session, Dyana Valentine will help you get your point across clearly and succinctly, without sacrificing your unique style. You'll have plenty of time to practice, so be sure to bring your ideas. Dyana will help you develop the perfect elevator speech or project pitch in no time.

About Dyana: Dyana is an instigational speaker and consultant who has developed a process to help self-starters self-finish: one project at a time. She has a master's degree from Antioch University and divides her time between grooming the next generation of community psychologists and schooling non-academics on how to move projects forward with grace and style. Her passion is helping people make and maintain the connections they need to grow themselves and their businesses, which she does via private consultations for individuals and institutions, as well as through her energetic workshops and talks.

Please RSVP and be on time for this one - Dyana is starting promptly at 1:15 pm! Don't be late!

    Dyana has an incredibly warm and inviting energy - making you feel completely safe to dive in and talk about your business and all your inner workings. Her methods and worksheet were ingenious and offered a really fun way to decipher what it is we really do, with whom and why. Each one of us left with amazing insight and new ideas. We were all aflutter with possibility - a true testament to Dyana's talents.

    Dyana gave a structured, thoughtful presentation peppered with hysterically funny comments and witty personality. Most importantly, Dyana demonstrated the uncanny ability to take a roomful of strangers with completely different businesses, and zero in on the essence of what each business owner is selling. Her creativity, professionalism, talent, and skill were clearly in abundance during this meetup.

    As always - Dyana really makes you think about how you describe yourself to others. It is amazing how she can help you find the perfect words to express your style and rep your business at the same time.

    Dyana rocked it! She is a phenomenal presenter and coach full of energy and insight. In the short time we were with her she helped each of us individually while in a group environment to hone our 30 second business pitches and to see ourselves and what we have to share with the big world in a whole new light. I highly recommend you work with her, individually or as part of a group. Thanks Dyana.

    "PitchPerfect" was amazing! Dyana is a firecrakery (hehe) ball of energy whose laser vision sees right to the truth of the matter. Her process for taking us all through various stages of developing a powerful pitch was really enlightening and motivating. Thanks Colleen & Dyana for making this incredible workshop available to us!

    Fabulous workshop! Dyana guided us through her own system so each participant came out with a newly designed answer to the question: "What do you do?" She helped each of us see who we are and what we do (as a business) in a new way, what makes us unique, and enabled us to explain it in a more powerful manner! Dyana Valentine rocks!
