I worked with Cindy to polish the pitch for my venture fund. She helped sharpen the story and improve my delivery. With Cindy’s help I was able to tighten the focus while increasing the engagement of my audience. The result was the ability to engage more potential investors and clearly convey my message. Working with Cindy on this was fun as well as productive.
I had the pleasure of working with Cindy on a presentation to a large audience. Cindy masterfully helped me organize my thoughts and created a framework that enabled me to communicate with authenticity and impact. I am so grateful for her help. She’s such an inspiration, and I look forward to working with her on more projects.
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 and has gotten 100% positive feedback from companies seeking venture capital funding. Cindy’s On Point materials and process are valuable in more than just venture capital pitches – she teaches clarity and effectiveness in communication which can be applied in any corporate or enterprise setting.
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 of how I am perceived and how to better control the way I am perceived. This is an invaluable gift and I attribute much of my newfound success to Cindy. Thank you, Cindy!
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 bringing Cindy back to every cohort because her workshop is an invaluable part of our course!
“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.”
Cindy, I want to thank you. You’ve had such a positive impact on me and our business. Not just through the work we’re doing, but through all the ways that you believed in our mission, and me as a person and leader. From the awesome executive summary I get compliments on every time I hand it out, to the pitch deck everyone tells me no longer needs editing, to the confidence I feel when I’m around investors and with my team, your hands have been in all of that.
We are finalists in the Colorado Companies to Watch award. We’ve been invited to the Governor’s mansion in July. It’s stunning to me to look at all we’ve accomplished, and I see you at the center of all of it. Thank you.
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.
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.
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.
“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!”
