As consultants, we write for credibility, we speak for cash. Ultimately, as in any other business, communication skills are the key to our success. From an "elevator pitch” to meeting prospective clients to presenting material and even conference or keynote speeches, the way we frame and communicate our message/business/skills/benefits is the single most important part of not just successful consulting, but attracting and satisfying our clients.

Frame a succinct message, meaningful to them

Practicing Q&A

 
Tom Kennedy, CMC and an Associated Press award winning broadcaster, coaches consultants and other senior executives in presentation, public speaking and media skills.

He believes that, "Leadership is getting them to want to follow.” and that, "The ultimate success of what you say depends entirely on how well you say it.”
