Pitch Development & Interview Coaching

You’ve been short-listed for a project you’ve been chasing for over a year. You know what the client wants and have a great relationship with the selection committee, but you’ve also invested countless amounts of time and money into courting the client, doing preliminary “concept” work, and giving the marketing team content for the proposal and presentation. Sound familiar? It pains us to see companies struggle through this process.

The bottom line is that most professionals went to school for a technical skill, not for sales, public speaking, or stand-up comedy, yet an interview asks you to perform all these skills and more. We make things easier. At Smartegies, our philosophy for creating a memorable pitch can be summed up in three words: INFORM, INFLUENCE, ENTERTAIN.

We have developed hundreds of winning presentations for developers, architects, engineers, interior designers, contractors, real estate brokers, law firms, and other service providers. Whether working with our client’s in-house marketing teams or with our in-house graphic designers, we identify key project issues and drivers, dissect our clients’ true points of difference, devise a unique and engaging presentation theme, develop a presentation framework, and assist with presentation. To ensure a memorable delivery, we also coach each presenter and develop leave-behind materials that stand apart from the competition. Have a big pitch coming soon?
