Steve helped me and his advice on some modifications to my deck really helped me with my story telling. After hearing about my organization, Liv2BMe, he gave excellent advice and pointers how to give the pitch in a way that would be more meaningful to the audience. I'd highly recommend Steve to anyone needing coaching on their pitch deck.
Start-up Founder 2022
Steve went out of his way to coach me on foundational marketing and sales techniques so that I could be successful during my internship. He does a great job of pushing me and challenging me so that I can effectively learn and grow, while also making me feel comfortable and confident by cheering me on in my successes. He is easy to get along with and always knows how to make people laugh!

He is adept at identifying core business values and crafting pitch presentations that bring attention to those values. He is also the best kind of direct, sharing his insights with others in the way of a teacher who truly enjoys teaching. His energetic and positive demeanor add to the experience of working with him and I'd highly recommend him.
Start-up Founder 2022
We worked with Steve and the Presentation Tune-Ups team in early 2021. We were very pleased with how quickly they were able to capture the essence of our business and communicate our messaging in a much simpler & direct manner. Steve delivered a complete package including an improved pitch deck on time and within our budget. We were very happy with the results which are still in use today.

CEO & /Co-Founder 2021
Steve Brett is a masterful teacher. He knows how to tell a powerful story and get it across to the audience. He is that great blend of consummate professional and fellow human....he is positive and encouraging in his message while being brutally honest at the same time. I value his input and I recommend him as a consultant if you have critical presentation or an important message to share.
Coach to Fortune 500s
I met Steve as a startup founder. Steve is very friendly, he shares
openly. He organized a really good activity that helped me understand how to pitch better and how to present in a way that's easier to understand for people that's not used to my Chilean accent. He has the ability to easily understand what you want and need to communicate .
Int'l. Founder and CEO
Two weeks after your training, I gave a presentation to health departments that participate in our project and I got lots of positive feedback. Several of my colleagues wanted to know how I did it and I told them that your workshop inspired me to do a TED-style talk. My team would benefit from what you teach and my lead asked me to reach out for more classes and webinars.

What's a Makes a
Business Pitch Successful?
Branding | Strategy | Storytelling! Data
Branding means that you have an identity that represents your company or product. Strategy means that you know who your buyers are, where to reach them, and what motivates them. Storytelling means that you can get and hold their attention. Only after all that - hit'em with the facts.
Your pitch has to stand out from the millions of messages that bombard your listener every day. Everybody is selling something on TV and TikTok and IG and Facebook. And that doesn't count radio, newspaper and magazine ads. Be special!
Less is More
P.T. Barnum, the first great showman of our era said, "Always leave them wanting more." Tell them all the juicy bits but don't bore them with the details. A great story with a beginning, middle, and end will give them the broad strokes with some proof, so the response will be, "Got more time?"
If you're not excited, no one else will be either. Show
your listener that you care - about their concerns and your abilities. You care about the people you work with and the people you'll be serving. If it matters to them, it should matter to you.
