Subject Matter Experts

From product specialists to scientists, subject matter experts are tasked with presenting or explaining information to a variety of audiences in a way that is compelling and effective.

Our work with SME’s tends to focus on high-impact strategies for communicating dynamically:

  • Making complex data or scientific concepts accessible
  • Generating excitement or buy-in to a product or idea
  • Showing up as polished, confident, thoughtful and authoritative
  • Speaking informally/handling Q&A
  • Using emotional intelligence to read a room and adjust approach
