Communicate & Connect
You need a vision and a brand,
marketing, advertising, and sales. Without any one of these foundational pillars, your organization is at risk.

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!
Ex-Intern now with Apple
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.

Steve Brett worked with us at an important time for MedTrans Go. He is a strong strategic thinker with an ability to understand our different needs, styles and strengths. Together we built out an early growth strategy, and created our sales and investor pitch decks . His easy going style, and broad network were critical to help reach the next level.
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.

You'll need copywriting,
design, graphs, images and public speaking skills if you are:
Market research, your competitive advantage, branding, key words, the target audience, pricing...all these things and more are part of a successful pitch or presentation.
Once we've assessed how your concept or product is perceived and where you fit in the matrix of supply, demand, and value - we can craft your presentations as a part of a complete go-to-market effort to raise funds or grow your revenue.
Every engagement - webinar, in-person class, or one-on-one consultation - is uniquely designed to meet or exceed your objectives.
Everybody needs to rehearse. And it helps to get some feedback in real-time and in a low-risk environment.
Virtual Pitch Practice is better than being there because you'll be practicing in front of the many of the same investors and entrepreneurs who do the judging for groups like TechStars, The RAISE Forum at the Goizueta Business School, Keiretsu and the start-up community - from the comfort of your office.
You'll get expert advice and you'll be introduced to the people who can really help you get better, get funding and grow your business.
