Advanced Message Mentorship
When a message needs fine-tuning, you’re often too close-in to develop it well – so that it reaches its full “persuasive potential.”You need guidance to organize and deliver it for your audience so it lands with them “just right” – so you can achieve true mastery of that message, from start to finish.
We’re experts at bringing the outside perspective you need. With advanced training in persuasive theory (which we’ll teach you), experience at global agencies, and a track record of success – we stand at the ready to help you craft persuasive messages of all types with precision, excellence, passion, and skill so you can win that next big deal.
We offer services in-person or virtually, so no matter where you live or work, it’s easy to get the help you need.

Cindy’s scientific communications training so exceeded my expectations! We brought her in for what was a superb 2-day Masterclass to work with our Emerging Technologies team – 80 in total. We learned so much about how to craft and deliver our messages succinctly and with executive presence.
I cannot recommend Cindy and her team strongly enough–they worked with us to shape the training to meet our requests and needs. Working with them was a FABULOUS experience!

“Cindy did an excellent job crafting a tailored training session for our team. She struck a great balance of lecture, discussion, and audience engagement while covering a wide range of communication topics and challenges.”
I recently had the opportunity to watch Cindy’s training videos on presentation skills and was thoroughly impressed with her expertise and engaging teaching style. Her framework for organizing presentations and tips on creating appealing slides with a strong message were particularly useful and I couldn’t stop watching her videos. Cindy’s training videos are truly engaging…
I’ve done a lot of jobs in my life, but never had to raise millions from investors. Before I worked with Cindy I was focused on getting my story out. After her advice I was focused on listening for cues, building alignment and helping both sides get to yes with confidence. I’ve chosen a tough…
I worked with Cindy to polish the pitch for my venture fund. She helped sharpen the story and improve my delivery. With her help, I was able to tighten the focus while increasing the engagement of my audience. As a result, I was able to engage more potential investors and clearly convey my message. Working…
I had the pleasure of working with Cindy on a presentation to a large audience of 500+. Cindy masterfully helped me organize my thoughts with her HOW-TO™ Model. She helped me create a framework that enabled me to communicate with authenticity and impact. I am so grateful for her help. She’s such an inspiration, and…
Cindy Skalicky is unique among many pitch coaches that I have known over the years. Her approach is systematic, but not dogmatic. She helps presenters to communicate from their own authentic selves which creates a powerful message. Cindy has mentored founders at Rockies Venture Club for over five years as a Certified Pitch Academy Trainer…
Cindy has been such a blessing to me. Cindy helped me recognize the small (but important) things that were holding me back in my executive presence. Her coaching was meaningful and I looked forward to our calls each week. I use the tools I learned from her all day every day. I am more aware…
Cindy has a unique way of delivering a compelling message using storytelling. The amount of “AHA” moments I had during coaching sessions kept me going even long after we completed our sessions. She is truly amazing and her work has transformed the way I approach presentations and deliver my message.
I’ve worked with Cindy 5 times now to help lab researchers with their presentation skills and storytelling ability for our entrepreneurial workshop. Prior to bringing Cindy in, the teams’ messaging was generally technical and clunky. After the On Point scientific messaging workshop, nearly every team’s presentation had a noticeably better cadence and storyline. We keep…
I feel fortunate and a little surprised that Cindy is located in Ft Collins and not New York or San Francisco – she brings the level of talent I would expect from a top firm in an international city. Working with Cindy has been one of the best investments we’ve made.
“As a professional speaker, I know the value of getting feedback before giving an important speech. As I prepared my TEDx talk, Cindy was the perfect person to give me outside perspective. She did a beautiful job taking the many ideas I had floating around in my head and helping me select what to use,…
