€150,000 prize fund awarded to winning companies in Ireland
When people contact me to coach them for high stakes opportunities, I am often asked how effective coaching can be if you cannot sit in the same room with me. Well, it turns out about 75% of my coaching is done remotely using Skype or GoToMeeting and the results speak for themselves with some recent wins...
Barracuda FX has been named as the Best High Growth Company at InterTradeIreland’s 8th annual All-island Seedcorn Business Competition, the largest business competition on the island which took place in Belfast on 24th November. Dublin-based Barracuda FX has won the overall prize of €100,000 and Epona Biotech Ltd. triumphed as the Best Emerging Company on the island, taking home a cash prize of €50,000. In both cases, we primarily worked remotely using Skype, screen sharing, and webcams. Everyone was able to join in to join in the rehearsals, even when in remote locations on the globe.
Congratulations to Kieran Fitzpatrick and his team at Barracuda FX and to Dr. Heinrich Anhold at Epona Biotech. I am confident that both companies will tell you remote presentation coaching worked for them!
