Project Details

What We Need
  • Personalized feedback and up to 5 coaching sessions with one member of the Organization
  • Document outlining strengths, weaknesses, and suggested next steps and/or resources for the member
Additional Details

I am working on a 3-minute pitch that needs to be perfect. The speech is written, but I would like feedback in terms of delivery, posture, gestures, etc. Speech is on Oct 23rd so I need to move somewhat quickly.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a dedicated staff member, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have videos of the speech, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $8,660 , allowing us to focus on increasing unrestricted funding.

I am giving a speech to a room full of potential donors. Your help will help me make the ask more effective.
