When you hear a speech or see an advertisement that screams “Success!”, it’s because the speaker used extreme care and precision when combining the persuasive elements of that message. At On Point, we teach clients specific strategies that help them optimize the persuasive pieces of their “message puzzle.” Whether they deliver the message from a stage or at a web page, clients leave sessions with practical tools and increased confidence. They are smarter about their messages, their audiences, and themselves.

The On Point Story:

For as long as I can remember, I have been passionate about all aspects of communication and message construction. Whether I was watching a commercial, reading a news article, or dissecting nationally televised talks like the State of the Union, I have always looked at messages as intricate puzzles. I take the message apart, look closely at each piece, inspect its persuasive function, and evaluate its effectiveness. Every piece of a message – spoken or written – plays an important role.

In college, I’d work cheerfully in the dank, dark basement library into the early hours of the morning, analyzing speeches and identifying message strategies the speaker used to persuade the audience.  In the depths of that old, empty library, I recognized and appreciated the power of persuasion. Message development backed by critical analysis is a skill set I continued to refine long after graduation; it is fundamental to the mission of On Point Communications, LLC.

Testimonials

You are a wonderful presenter Cindy! I have taken so much from your presentation at the conference. I noticed when you speak, you at times lowered your volume in a way where we still heard you, but it PULLED the audience in, as if you were confiding in us.

Your vocal variety was lovely, (as well as your content, of course!). The advice to gather your stories from your past and weave them into your presentations is spot on.

When speaking at the CTL conference this spring, I had the privilege to sit in on Cindy’s Storytelling talk. Cindy has an impressive background, and a wonderful approach to helping you present more effectively. Telling a compelling story is crucial for effective presentations that connect with your audience, and Cindy can equip you to prepare and present in a structured, but seemingly unrehearsed way.

“Cindy: You know what, empathic emotion does sell. I would have been all numbers. I learned a big lesson. Thank you so much.”

2017 Go Code Colorado finalist

“Cindy, I’m in your Career Thought Leaders Conference session right now and you’re absolutely delivering on what you promised when we first met! I’m so excited to keep making progress in developing my brand story.”

Mashaal Ahmed|DC Career Coach

When you meet Cindy, you can’t help but feel engaged and pay attention. She clearly is an outstanding communications professional. The way she took the stage, conveyed her message and shared her approach to storytelling at the recent conference was mesmerizing.

Cindy made me rethink my approach to storytelling that I had used in my client work for many years. Cindy’s workshop alone made my trip to Denver worthwhile.
