  • Detailed review of your visuals, if you use PowerPoint, to improve clarity, organization, and retention for the listener. You do NOT want ‘death by PowerPoint’!

  • Pre and post follow-up discussion by phone or email and conversations throughout the process

How your personalized Speak For Yourself® (SFY) executive communication/presentation skills consulting process works:

  • Karen or an SFY Associate will talk to you before the consulting begins — and you can fill out the downloadable Client Coaching Questionnaire (pdf). Together both will see if this is a good match for a collaborative effort. Once there is a mutual agreement, the process begins.
  • For out of town clients - SFY recommends that you come to our Dallas office to work for 1.5 days. We can also travel to your locale if that's easier. OR consulting can be done virtually using "Zoom". Clients do NOT need a Zoom account. SFY will provide the link.
  • For clients in the DFW area — The time spent together will be separated into periodic 2-hour sessions. The number of sessions depends on the project.
  • SFY is also available to do on-site coaching and critiquing of presentations, sales pitches, job proposals, etc.
  • Honest insights will be given in a non-threatening trusting environment throughout.
  • Speak For Yourself® and client will treat all non-public written and oral information provided by the other as confidential and will not use such information unless the disclosing party receives the prior written consent of the other.
  • Clients will receive a signed copy of Karen's book, The Naked Truth about Giving Great Speeches, a Speak For Yourself® Workbook (that will never end up in your favorite file cabinet that's rectangular and resides on your office floor), and a business-sized summary card.
