I help you or your team get results by improving communication skills.
As a speaker, trainer, and coach, Cathy McNally knows how to get people to communicate for results. For nearly twenty years, she's been showing leaders, engineers and sales people at Fortune 500 firms how to present, speak, and write more effectively. She's also coached entrepreneurs at accelerators and been been a communications lecturer at Boston University Questrom School of Management. And just in case that sounds too serious, her background as a stand-up and improv comic, means that people usually have a blast while they are learning.
Cathy’s motto is “You can say it better. I can show you how." Even if you already say “it” or present “it” pretty well, Cathy can help you be more persuasive, more compelling, and more engaging, no matter who your audience is. So what do you need to “say better?” Maybe it’s a speech at a conference, a presentation to leadership, a business pitch, a stump speech? Cathy works with any group or individual to develop, design and deliver high-stakes talks, speeches, documents, or presentations that must succeed.
So how does she get people – like, say you - to “say it better”?
First, she knows how to get you to dig deep to find and articulate your most important audience takeaway - that “one message” the audience must remember. She knows how to figure out what the audience needs to hear so that they agree with you. She knows how to help you engage and persuade your audience with the stories, facts, and insights built around that “one message.” And she knows how to create slides that actually work for you - and not against you. And finally, she knows how to help you become a more confident and powerful communicator of your message.
Cathy is also the founder and leader of “Women Speak Up, Speaker training for women who want to change the world,” Cathy gets to work with women activists, advocates, candidates, and social entrepreneurs - the change makers and innovators who need to sell ideas, change minds, and move people to action. Through workshops, coaching, and keynotes, Cathy helps women gain the confidence and skills they need to make their voices and their ideas stand out in our world.
