Our Story

On Point Communications is here to help you Master the Message.

Cindy SkalickyCindy_Profile

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

“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

“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, how to organize them, and how to tie it all together.

I love the way she coached, not trying to make her words my own, but instead, considering what I was trying to achieve and helping me stay true to my voice. If you have to stand and deliver a great talk, working with Cindy can help you ensure you’re at your best!”

Tanis Roeder, Elevate Your Communication

Cindy was selected to present at the Career Thought Leader Conference in Denver. I attended her session and was impressed with her presentation and content marketing expertise. I have been a trainer for over 20 years and her presentation added specific impactful strategies that I will include in my next training. Cindy has a natural engaging style that is persuasive and professional. I would highly recommend working with her if you are looking to increase your business presentations.
