COACHING

Communicate better

Great communication is magic. It has the power to inspire, to influence, to change people’s minds.
But unlike magic, no secret trick here. Just work.
This is why this coaching program is based on one thing : results.
And results showed me that everyone has the inner ability to push their limits, get better- spread some magic.

PUBLIC SPEAKING

To inspire your audience, engage with them and make your message memorable, you don’t need to be funny, cool or sexy. All you need is…
Wait, I am not telling you this here, it would be a spoiler (and no, the answer is not “Love”). Just know that you will:
  • Learn how to engage with the audience and keep their attention
  • Make your message accessible and avoid the usual “bullshit bingo
  • Use storytelling to make it concrete and memorable
  • Rehearse, rehearse and rehearse until you deliver perfectly
Pre requisite: watch The “Why" talk by Simon Sinek

VISUAL COMMUNICATION

Most people use PowerPoint. Most people don’t know how to use PowerPoint. And so most people think PowerPoint sucks. Truth is, it can be great -and also, there are other tools.
Here you will use 4 key graphic rules to:
  • Create a « Wow » effect instead of a "Ew" one
  • Make the best out of any visual tool (Ppt, Prezi, Images...)
  • Make the visual tool boost your presentation- not challenge it
Pre requisite: watch The beauty of Data Vizualisation, by David Mc Candless

CLEAR WRITING

Think of a shameful absence of smiley or an extra “!” in a text message costing you a romantic date. Now transpose this to the professional level.
Need I say more?
Here you will learn and practice how to:
  • Write effective content for blogs, websites, newsletter and more
  • Create Dynamic headlines
  • Adapt to your target audience
Pre requisite: watch Mad Men

CRISIS COMMUNICATION

When facing a tough journalists panel, a sneaky political opponent, a mad public opinion not to mention your angry wife or husband, you have to know how to get out of tricky situations and make your point fast and clear.
So in this training mostly based on role play games, you will:
  • Learn how to use the “move the frame” technique and win arguments
  • Design a crisis communication strategy
  • Always be one step ahead of your opponent
Pre requisite: watch Thank You For Smoking

Coaching Pack Example


Each training is tailored. It could be 12 hours. There could be 4 of you. Or just you. Or no video.
I also do pro bono when a project inspires me and offer special deals if you are based outside of Europe.
So let’s meet, talk and decide what suits you best.
