Customized Communications Training
The pandemic has dramatically changed how we communicate. Teams already are connecting in new ways and will need to continue to improve how they engage and communicate – whether virtually, in person, or in new hybrid environments.
Moving a program, a meeting, a sales presentation or a conference from in-person to an online or hybrid model is not as simple as standing in front of your laptop camera and talking. How you present, individually and as a team, can lead to success or failure. The right strategy, skills and approach make all the difference.
In partnership with Gerry Sandusky, the Voice of the Baltimore Ravens, MarketPoint’s team offers customized online presentation training tailored to your organization’s specific presentation needs. Programs can be designed to address multiple aspects of virtual communications – from getting comfortable and understanding how to connect with your audience when in front of the camera to strengthening presentation skills for sales pitches or other types of ideation, problem-solving or project meetings. Our experts bring more than 30 years of experience in communications and broadcasting.

Thank you for the invaluable training and for guiding me to find my voice. The workshops were succinct, well organized, and taught valuable lifelong lessons.
I asked MarketPoint to help me prepare for a major presentation, and their coaching proved invaluable. Thanks to their guidance, patience and advice, my presentation flowed well, my audience stayed engaged, and I received numerous requests for more information and follow-up as soon as I finished because so many people wanted to chat!
MarketPoint helped us develop a brand platform that articulates a clear vision of the direction we need to take the company. And their organizational compass gave us a tool that helps keep the whole delivery system on track and on message – it’s a visual representation of what we’re all about. Marketing can be a funny thing: You don’t know what you don’t know! That’s why you need MarketPoint.
The presentation went very well. Thanks again for all your help in elevating our preparation for this presentation and leaving us with lasting lessons that we can carry on into future preparation and presentations. We won the project!
