Also get live instant presentation coaching!
Roy Terry has heard every style of weak presentation in Silicon Valley. And, he has then re-invented it on the fly, often to applause. As long-time host of “find your cofounder,” “SV Entrepreneurs pitch practice”, and numerous workshops on storytelling, networking, etc., he brings instant and accurate analysis to any communication challenge. If you want to disrupt the ordinary and make changes, you must have this kind of super direct and creative coaching. You’ll gain keynote-speaker techniques and insights while you learn to properly frame and deliver professional messages that change outcomes. You won’t be effective with sloppy wording and great words won’t work if you blow the delivery. Learn how to get all of it right at the same time.
