Sales and pitch presentations
Pitches and sales documents should be lively, readable and targeted to a specific audience or organisation.
The sales pitch is a critical corporate activity –that demands greater attention and a more bespoke approach than has traditionally been the case.
Phil repurposes, restructures and rewrites existing sales and pitch documents and presentations to make them more meaningful, interesting and easier to follow for each prospective client.
His re-formulation of the corporate and sales presentation of a London-based hedge fund group in 2010 resulted in a doubling of the group’s success rate in competitive pitches by mid-2011.
An effective speech creates strong personal and corporate branding. Phil’s industry knowledge and sensitivity to the “voice” of the speechmaker ensure key messages are clear and compelling.

No longer “dead-weight” documents, brochures are scrutinised increasingly closely by investors and other stakeholders. They should be as compelling as other marketing documents.
