We coach participants on how to clearly and accurately communicate the impact of their research and to do it with confidence.


We serve scientists, technical researchers, and physician scientists in academia, startups, non-profits, and for-profits in science and healthcare.

We really enjoy working with Master's and Ph.D. candidates, Post-Docs, and early career faculty in academia and industry  because we've been there before and know we can help ease presentation anxiety and help communicate the what, how, and why should I care of research.
