Branding

“We’re ready to update our mission and vision statements. We’ve tried to do it ourselves but we’re too close to it. We need outside guidance.”

When you know your brand – and can sum it up in 3 to 7 core values – you’ve unlocked a messaging strategy that works. But first, we’ve got to get to the core – the heart of the matter.

We pose questions like, “What strengths does the leadership team bring? Where are there holes? What’s your vision? Have you written a mission statement? Do you need one? What sets you apart from the competition? What about your process? Your pricing?

And if you’re just getting started, let’s do a “4 words” exercise and a write a “tweet” to guide you.

At OPC, we’ll walk you through a 5-step branding workshop that answers these questions, bringing clarity and direction to your brand. Once that’s complete? Bingo, we’ve just set the foundation for your message platform.

Testimonials

Cindy, you were immensely helpful in narrowing down the story part of our pitch. With your guidance, we were able to make a very complicated technical problem relatable to a mixed audience. We still can’t believe the first questions was, “it sounds too good to be true.” That is so much better than the feared, “I do understand what your product does.” Thank you for your professional help and support. RVC knew what they were doing bringing you in as a pitch coach.”

Samuel Thomas Elliott|Co-Founder, Tejon Technologies

“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, BRAVO! The Colloquium was a splendid success. Thank you for your hard work. I’m very proud of how it turned out. Very truly yours, Bob Schaffer”

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.
