Our Programs

The Speakers Practice programs are for Entrepreneurs, Coaches and SME Business owners. We also offer assistance with career advancement and speciality speeches.

Our clients have a professional background, have enjoyed many successes and now they have taken the brave step to start their own business. However, growing the business is not as straight forward as they first thought.

Our clients are experts at what they do and offer. The main problem they face is getting in the business, once they can do this, the business prospers and they shine.

The urgent challenges our clients experience are:
➖  Need more clients to grow their business
➖  Talking about what they do is difficult
➖  Marketing doesn’t light their fire
➖  Nervousness about making an error
➖  A stumbling block is anything to do with the internet
➖  Have another block on putting something out there to people who they don’t know
➖  Not admitting marketing and doing sales activities they find difficult

The good news is that this is completely normal.

The Speakers Practice has a suite of programs , specially designed, to help with these challenges and deliver training to achieve and succeed. Our work offers a systematic approach to get more clients.

Our work includes:

Our clients say the #1 result they experience when they buy into our programs is that they learn what they need to do to grow their business and they see the benefits of doing the work – more clients!

Our sustainable business approach

The Speakers Practice is focusing on reducing the amount of waste and un-necessary use of plastics to ensure a better green environment to preserve our community for our children and the next generations.

We support these local initiatives for our community.

Congratulations on beginning your journey to break up with single use plastic!

As a conscious shopper, I want to take positive steps to reduce the amount of single use plastic that I use in my life. I acknowledge that from time to time it will be unavoidable but I make the pledge to say bye-bye to single use plastic by as a shopper to be conscious of the purchase of single use plastic bottles.   Keep up the great work and don’t be discouraged if you still use single use plastic.  Every conscious decision not to use single use plastic counts towards our goal to say byebye plastic hello BYO!

What are Investors looking for in Pitches?

shutterstock_223704667

Entrepreneurs and Startups have such great ideas, they are highly skilled in so many ways and they are wanting to change the world. There is the reality that it takes funding to change the great idea into reality.

So it becomes really important for the Entrepreneur to be successful when going through the pitching process with getting the necessary funding they need to make their dream into reality.

The delivery of the Pitch becomes the interface between the Entrepreneur and the Investor looking for great ideas that the Investor can make a good return on.

What are the important elements of the Pitch ?

1. Clarity – The individual delivering the pitch needs to have absolute clarity over each segment of the business proposal. Being able to articulate easily the design, formation and undertakings of the business is sound preparation for putting together a pitch.

2. Pitching Requirements – The Pitch must give all the information that the Investor needs to make an informed decision – to atleast talk further with the Entrepreneur if not make an offer.

The areas that need addressing are:
Identifying the problem the business is addressing?
What is the solution?
How big is the market?
How the business is going to make profit?
What is the business model?
Is there Proprietary Technology?
Who is the competition?
Marketing Plan- How are sales going to be achieved?
Team – Who is needed and on the team?
Money milestones – what are you going to spend and achieve?

3. The Delivery of the Pitch is important – if the Entrepreneur doesn’t display passion about his own product – then why would anyone else?  Preparation, practice, easy to read slides and a polished performance are all going to have a significant impact on the success (or not) of the pitch.

Overview:

The whole package is important – information, delivery and clarity. Speaking to Investors and getting them to commit capital to your business idea is challenging but will reap great rewards – especially if you are prepared and have a polished presentation.
