“Really valuable day to stop and think about our audience. Hard to think of anything that could have been better. Fun and practical!”
Chris Dowling, MD, Cairngorm Group 

Nicky and Kate’s interactive training session will help you craft and present your business story with style. In a crowded marketplace – and in today’s rapidly changing world – it’s more important than ever that your business stands out. Your story is key to this.

“It was very helpful to rethink our key messaging…and re-adjust our tone for our audience”
Clare Armstrong, Inverness Chamber of Commerce


Drawing from decades of experience in the media, Nicky and Kate will help you get your business story straight, turn it into a pitch and present it with confidence!

“Great support and guidance. Very friendly and insightful.”
Graham Robertson, Caithness Engineering Services

“Working out how to communicate clearly and concisely what your business does, and the impact it can have on others, is an entirely different set of skills from what you might be doing day to day. Taking time out to think through your story and learning how to present it confidently could  help you hit the ground running in 2024,” explains Nicky.
“A confidence boosting day. Informative, fun and inspiring!”
Laura O’Kane, Caithness Chamber of Commerce
“This day will give you a full day to think about your business story and focus on how you’ll use that story to reach new customers, attract new markets, and ultimately boost the bottom line,” said Kate.
Delegates will leave with a beautifully crafted business pitch and new-found confidence and presentation skills, which they can put into immediate use.
