Pitch Coaching

Have you ever walked out of a pitch thinking: "That could have gone so much better"? Many people make the same mistakes in the pitch room that cost them the chance to secure funding, inspire stakeholders or sign new clients. Things go wrong because your message is not clear, and you fail to stand out.

Our mission is to get you to learn to tell your stories in just a few words (be concise), use simple words that everyone can relate to (be clear) and articulate why your audience should care (be different).

Pitch coaching for individuals

If you have a big investor meeting coming up, a sales pitch or an important business presentation, we offer face-to-face coaching or virtual coaching via our private video-chat room.

Depending on your goals and challenges, we will typically work on refining your story, structuring your messages, simplifying your slide deck, enhancing your delivery style and sharpening your answers to tough questions. We will fine tune and practice until it is just right.

You will be amazed how just 2 or 3 hours of coaching can have a transformative impact.

Pitch & presentation training for groups

Our pitch training workshops are broken down into easy-to-digest sections, which provide many opportunities of practice time for each individual.

We cover one section at a time:
Find your main message
Structure your supporting points
Develop a story to frame your pitch
Finish with a powerful closing
Prepare answers for the Q&A

For each section, we first introduce tips and techniques. Then, we invite you to put them into practice immediately, which usually involves crafting that aspect of your presentation in a workbook, delivering it in the front of the group and receiving feedback from a coach.

You will leave our training with a framework you can use to prepare for your future presentations.

What our clients say

Jeanne and I worked together to refine my pitch deck and improve its delivery. After going through the material she was able to very quickly provide valuable input. Her methodology and structure helped give the pitch a much needed clarity to the message delivered. I'd highly recommend working with her!

Jeanne truly helped us define our pitch, training us to communicate our start-up's value proposition. Jeanne's analytical skills are unquestionable. She knows what to leave/what to include, where to start/where to end and how to frame the story. And as a bonus, she is honest and full of contagious energy.

I found Jeanne a very knowledgeable and practical advisor. The techniques she proposed and the advice given regarding presentations and sales approaches have proved extremely valuable, enabling me to secure consultancy work and a sign off for my re-organisation proposals. I would wholeheartedly recommend Olystix to any prospective clients.

I worked with Olystix when I had to prepare for a pitch in very little time. Their approach was very efficient. My coach asked a few questions and got me to deliver my pitch. She then made suggestions on how to present my story in the optimal and simplest way. All that in just a couple hours.
