Congratulations, you firm is short-listed… BUT how do you help your team build a winning presentation that stands out from the rest?

We’ve all heard a client say, “we felt more comfortable with the winning team?”  During this workshop, you will learn firsthand what clients look for and want to hear from your firms during an interview and how to achieve that ‘comfort’ level.

Whether you are the one giving the presentation or behind the scenes coaching those that present, this interactive session will give you tips on how to format and deliver your presentations so your team builds a stronger connection with the audience and ultimately, wins more work.

Participants will have the opportunity to practice what they are learning and try new techniques.

Additionally, Dena will cover techniques to help you build your own credibility and tips for successful 1st impressions and stronger networking skills that lead to stronger relationships.
