How to Engage with Nan
Clients work with me in a number of ways. Many clients contact me with an urgent need to prepare for a meeting, a key conversation or an upcoming presentation.
I get a lot of calls that go something like this:
NEW CLIENT: “Hi, I have a really important presentation coming up in the very near future, and I need to be brilliant, but quite frankly I’m pretty nervous about it and I heard you could really help me.” [They typically blurt this out pretty quickly]
NAN: “I can. I’m glad you called. [I say, in a remarkably reassuring tone] Tell me more.”
In almost all of my coaching work I focus on how to:
- Identify your top priorities
- Determine key challenges
- Craft key messages
- Design the arc of your performance so it inspires your audience to take action
- Uncover the unconscious habits that can undermine your authority
- Hone your content with a powerful, authentic delivery
- Embody your message with energy & passion
QUICK! I NEED TO BE FANTASTIC PROGRAM
For clients with an urgent, short term need:
- We work together for anywhere from 3-12 hours, in 3 hour blocks, typically completed in 3 weeks.
