If you have materials ready to go, we'll start our deep dive consultation.  You'll present what you have, I'll take notes, and when you've concluded we'll discuss the sections of your materials that adhere to effective storytelling and audience engagement principles, and focus on the areas that could use improvement.  Throughout, I'll provide you clear examples of and practical tools for how to improve. 
 
If you don't have any presentation or marketing materials for review, we'll start brainstorming topics and themes of interest, and begin to "Build The Sandwich" for one of these ideas with your target audience in mind.  We'll outline a clear and enticing introduction, identify your compelling content points, and determine the best  conclusion that leaves your audience wanting more.

After this first meeting, there is no obligation or pressure to continue working together should you feel that this is best.  The work we completed together is yours free of charge.
