Chris Shipley from DEMO writes about coaching for DEMOfall 08
In the DEMO.com posting today, Chris writes about How to entice people to want to know more about your product. The words in her posting are sound advice for any company going up on stage at the DEMOfall 08 Conference. They are also applicable to any company giving a "do or die" demo in a short 5-10 minutes. In addition to making many excellent points about how to make the best use of your time on stage, Chris also says, "Then get an outsider's perspective. An outsider comes to the presentation with fresh eyes. That blank stare on the outsider's face tells you immediately that you're not getting your point across. An outsider will tell you truth when a team member may sugar coat it."
And then, she goes on to say, "One effective way to get an outsider's view is to hire a coach. I've recommended a number of coaches over the years, and perhaps no one has helped more companies through the pains of DEMO preparation than Nathan Gold. This year, the self-described "Demo Coach" is making his services available and affordable in a series of one-day workshops, August 5 and 6, at the Sofitel Hotel in Redwood City. While not an "official" DEMO event, I'd recommend the workshops to anyone needing extra counsel in preparing and presenting a product demonstration. You'll find more information at http://www.democoach.com/demofallprep.html."
So, there you go. I am ready to help your team. If neither of the dates work for you to attend this one day intensive workshop, I am still accepting clients for 1:1 coaching for the conference.
The time to get started preparing is right now. Registration lines are open at 1.800.221.0782 or +1.510.400.7917.
