Step One: You present to Matt. Matt records it (don’t worry, everything we do in class is completely confidential).

Step Two: You send Matt your slidedeck (or at least screenshots of the slides).

Step Three: Matt records himself delivering the presentation, so you can hear the wording (transitions, upgraded vocabulary, etc) that a native speaker would use.

Step Four: Matt sends you the new transcript, and you review it together (does the new transcript reflect your meaning correctly, is there any company jargon you would like to use instead of the vocabulary in the transcript, are there any words or phrases that are hard for you to pronounce, etc).

Step Five: You practice the presentation yourself, to make sure you are comfortable with the new transcript.

Step Six: You and Matt practice the presentation together again, to clear up any remaining pronunciation issues and to make sure you sound smooth and professional. Matt identifies the three or four “low-hanging fruit” things you can do to improve your delivery (typically, “reducing your ahh count” will be one of these).


Note that the cycle typically take 1-2 weeks. Steps 1-4 typically only take a week total, but the practice takes more time.

Also note that nowhere in here are your slides themselves being redesigned. We might suggest some changes, and you might make some too, and slide design is something we do, but it is expensive work and is outside the scope of this package.
