“Hayden and Nathan were very personable and professional, immediately making me feel at ease and ready to learn. Not to mention, the way Hayden explained the presentation’s problem points highlighted what needed to be done and what could be improved. Also, Nathan’s ability to tie together real examples with solutions laid a clear path forward.

“My main takeaway from our coaching was to focus on the story of the pitch and also to explain things simply. You don’t want the judges to get mixed up so you need to be able to make sure that they know what your product/service is easily without having to think too much. I like that we are able to tailor the session to go where we want it to go. It is very helpful as we go along so we can quickly pivot to whatever we want to work on next/whatever we need help with next. It was very valuable for us.
