I help leaders raise money. Specifically: I coach leaders, entrepreneurs, and politicians to bring clarity to their message and passion to their delivery to help them raise money.
Additionally, I work with all relevant players within organizations to prepare them to make cold calls, network, and conduct meetings with potential investors.
My goal is that every time someone interfaces with your organization he or she is compelled by the organization’s mission, inspired by its vision, and eager to get involved.
Every person at your organization will be able to concisely articulate what your company does, why it does it, and why it does it best. Every person at your organization will be a powerful asset in raising money for your mission.
Too often smart, innovative leaders with great ideas are not able to raise the money they need simply because they cannot concisely and passionately communicate their ideas. Alternatively, an articulate and powerful leader can still lose investment potential if the staff and Board are not able to deliver the same concise, bold message. In order for investment opportunities to be maximized, everyone at an organization needs to be aligned in communicating the same powerful message.
Through collaboration, we will refine your organization’s message and optimize your delivery as a steward of that message.
There are four key elements we will integrate into your message.
- Clarity: Your message will be clear and your audience will “get” it.
- Passion: Your commitment & purpose will be palpable and inspiring.
- Urgency: There will be a captivating urgency to your message.
- Action: You will end with a provocative call to action.
The opportunity to pitch your organization will come in myriad ways and you must be practiced in all of them in order to maximize potential investments.
· Public Presentations
· One on one conversations
· Question and answer periods
Once we have developed your message, we will adapt it to each format. You will become as expert in giving a public speech as you will be in inspiring investments over lunch.
We will build a list of all the common questions and concerns aimed at your organization and develop succinct, fact-based responses to each.
The result of our work is that you will maximize every possible investment opportunity, gaining more funding for your good ideas.
