My wife and I went new car shopping a few days ago. Not that we need a new car. We simply thought that better mileage (and the possibility of lower payments) would be nice. We took a few models for a test drive. The decision is still to be made as we weren’t bowled over by anything.
It sometimes goes that way with organizations in search of consulting services, too. Similar to our new car hunt, companies in need of communications training services for their executives often have a boatload of questions. Does my prospective consultant have the mandatory experience? Is he a good fit for our needs? What type of budget commitment am I looking at?
In an attempt to clear away those unknowns, I’ve decided to offer a 20-minute Test Drive. The free service helps companies that are seeking media training, public speaking instruction, and Congressional testimony preparation sort through their options.
There are a lot of moving parts involved in arranging a communications training program for the CEO or for a team of executives. The Test Drive helps potential clients fit the puzzle pieces together.
The free 20-minute telephone consultation serves as a sounding board for companies in need of communications training expertise. Participants in the Test Drive get answers to such questions as:
- Are we a good fit?
- What other consulting capabilities may prove useful now or in the future?
- What about potential availability?
- What sort of budget parameters should they consider in order to accomplish desired objectives?
One of the best parts of the Test Drive is that companies gain clarity before committing valuable time and resources. It helps them trim waste from their calendar and from their budget.
Those who sign up for the free consultation receive a complimentary copy of my book, The Truth About Public Speaking: The Three Keys to Great Presentations, or my media relations guide, Face the Press with Confidence: The Media Interview Companion, upon completion of their Test Drive.
