Neil helped me with my recent book, and he was very professional, insightful, and detail-oriented in his approach. While he challenged and tightened my writing, he also enabled me to stay true to the spirit and content of what I wanted to express.

“Facts tell, stories sell.”
Do you want to build buzz about your business? Does your marketing copy need more oomph? Are your words doing you justice? Words can be your competitive advantage. Good writing grabs attention. We can help you create eye-catching messages that engage audiences quickly and hold them to the last word.
We specialize in writing news releases, newsletters, articles, web site content and books. We’ll write for you, using powerful storytelling techniques to promote your products and services with clarity and impact.
We’ll edit for you. Tap into our international experience editing newspapers, magazine articles, broadcast scripts and books. Words that sell are words that have been stripped of any flab.
Or we will show you how to write well. We teach simple techniques that will make your words memorable, whether you are writing an article, business letters or emails.
WHAT’S YOUR STORY? AND HOW CAN IT BOOST YOUR BUSINESS?
Before your audience can believe in your facts, they need to believe in you. Telling stories is a good way of helping your audience get to know you. And that’s the first step towards believing in you. The stories you tell help the audience assess who you really are. Talk about how wonderful your latest product is, and people may think you are a braggart. Tell a story about the struggle behind the creation of the product and the audience will be rooting for you.
Stories touch us in a way facts don’t. Parkinson’s Disease is a fact. Actor Michael J. Fox’s struggle with Parkinson’s Disease is a story that drives medical research, agitates for political change, and has people giving money to finance the search for a cure. Information without shape is forgettable. And we are awash in information. At Podium Coaching, we give you the tools to make your information memorable and meaningful.
