What do you want to do better?

Stories are your single most powerful communication tool.

They help us remember, shape our identity, and influence how we see the world. Learn how to use stories in advocacy, development, recruiting and every aspect of your internal and external communications.

Whether you’re presenting face-to-face or screen-to-screen, we can help.

Drawing from unprecedented research, we’ll show you how to deliver exactly what your audience wants, how to avoid what they don’t want, how to make PowerPoint your friend (and not your enemy), and how to adjust both your slides and delivery when presenting virtually.

To move your audience to action, you must connect at four different points.

Fail to connect at any one point and you may lose your audience entirely. But when you recognize “The Four Connecting Points” and know how to capitalize on each one, you will get more out of every minute you invest and every communications dollar you spend.

What’s the quickest way to increase your organization's effectiveness?

Improve your meetings. Your organization invests countless hours in meetings every week, so why not invest just two hours to make sure these gatherings actually accomplish something?

Can you name the five parts of the perfect pitch?

You’ve got a handful of minutes to pitch your nonprofit. What do you say? What do you leave out? After studying dozens of nonprofit pitches, we’ve identified five questions you must answer to deliver the perfect pitch.

You do good work. But good work doesn't always speak for itself.

In fact, sometimes you may find it particularly difficult to explain what you do in a concise and compelling way. That’s where we come in.
