Attorneys are constantly faced with high-stakes situations – meetings with clients and potential clients, meetings with colleagues and opposing counsel, and presentations to judges and juries. Regardless of where your skills are, you can improve. High-Stakes Communication works with you to develop new speaking skills, increased confidence, and tools to help communicate powerfully and clearly when there’s a lot on the line.
We start by learning who you are and what you want to accomplish. Then, we learn who your target audience is and what they want. The power of a successful speech or presentation lies in the nexus.
Then we work “organically” with you. We videotape you so that you have the opportunity to see for yourself how you come across to an audience and are able to accelerate your improvement. It’s all about being the best you can be, authentically – not a caricature of yourself. And then delivering your presentation in a way that connects with your audience.
