I’ve created hundreds of pitch decks over the years, but only recently engaged Cruxio to help. Their process has changed the way I will create all my presentations going forward. The Cruxio approach is methodical, targeted, and rooted in empathy for the audience. The pitch presentation we created together is distinctive and the feedback we’ve received has been exceptional. Rob and Wendy are masters of their craft, not to mention delightful collaborators. I would recommend them to any person or company that needs help influencing new investors, prospective partners, or leaders to see a better vision of the future.

I have delivered a number of strategic stories in the last few years that have helped us to make better important decisions in Quality and now in Manufacturing. The stories are clear, compelling, powerful and above all, convincing. Working with Cruxio has helped me personally to deliver sophisticated content to non-technical audiences.

We are now training high potentials and others to be able to do the same. We all know the benefits of effective communication. Thanks Cruxio!

Working with Cruxio has changed the way that I develop strategic communications. Now my focus is on first creating a clearly structured, compelling storyline. For me, that’s one that translates our pursuit of a better future to different audiences. Applying Cruxio’s process takes me away from everyday concerns; it forces me to reflect on that better future every day.

I continue to have my top talent trained in Cruxio’s methodologies for strategic story development and presentation delivery. The result is clearer communication, thinking and decision-making.

Cruxio’s strategic story process equipped me and my leadership team with a crisp, focused set of messages to a broad array of audiences including our institutional investors, the FDA, physicians and their patients.

During subsequent Cruxio training I was delighted to see my executive team light up to the possibilities of communicating complex scientific data to both scientists and non-scientists in ways that were clear and compelling.

We retained Cruxio to make our company’s presentation more visually compelling. However, Cruxio’s systematic process required us to first rethink our strategy and the story we wanted to tell investors (we used the presentation to complete a major financing). The result was a presentation in which both substance and style were dramatically improved – largely because they were developed in that order.

The pitch went very well today. Several folks commented on the clarity of the presentation. There were two professional videographers recording the proceedings. I ran into one of them in the hall afterwards; he stopped me, shook my hand, and said:

The pitch went very well today. Several folks commented on the clarity of the presentation. There were two professional videographers recording the proceedings. I ran into one of them in the hall afterwards; he stopped me, shook my hand, and said:

”I'm a video producer and I wanted to congratulate you on that presentation. It was so clear that I almost understood it, and I haven’t had chemistry since high school. Normally PowerPoint decks are murderously bad; yours was terrific.”

Thanks for all your help!

We wanted to transform a concrete vision into an effective and simple call for action, engaging the main 200 top leaders of the Pharma Division of Novartis. Cruxio helped me personally to convey a very clear message to a demanding audience. I am thrilled by the way the message was grasped and how the clarity of the message is making change happen.

Most of us in leadership roles have been trained on how to present, but Cruxio goes beyond that to teach us how to influence. The techniques help the presenter maintain a smooth flow, keep the audience engaged, and synchronize words and visuals to maximize understanding and buy-in. The result is a focused and persuasive presentation.

I have applied the skills with positive feedback from participants and good results. The training has definitely enhanced my communication skills.

We received a steady stream of unsolicited compliments on the clarity, structure and polish of our sales presentation during a recent roadshow in Europe. These qualities have been a consistent characteristic of Cruxio's work with us in developing high-stakes sales presentations for globally diverse sales teams.

Cruxio's approach includes a unique and collaborative development process, a rare ability to distill complex technical information and powerful visual interpretation of concepts to deliver high-impact presentations. That has been a winning combination for us.

One of the early steps in Cruxio’s process analyzes how your audience is likely to respond to your message. This helped me to identify risks that could have been damaging to me and my cause. As a result I changed my message to avoid the potential hazards and to substantially improve my chances of success. As a returning client, the rigor of this process continues to impress me.

Cruxio has a way to unlock the measures of success in communicating the story you want to tell. The discovery process is intense, requires commitment, engagement but at the end the exercise turns out to be very effective. The process makes you understand the importance of stakeholder management and adapting your language to the audience you want to influence. Make sure you plan ahead of time to maximize the effectiveness of this communication journey.

Roche Diagnostics Head of Global Product Supply (retired)

I engaged Cruxio to help me develop one of the most important presentations of my career. The goal was to secure firm senior management support for a major strategic program across our organization. Cruxio demonstrated an amazing capability to rapidly distill messages from a confusing, almost obstructive, set of sources. Cruxio then compiled these messages into a compelling story arc, tailored to the audience, illustrated with clean graphical support.

Cruxio's process is an inspiring, enjoyable dialog, which made the hard, time-pressured work feel like playful pleasure.

Singulex, Inc. Chief Executive Officer

Cruxio helped us develop a strategic story to communicate value to specific external audiences. I had not expected that working through the process would expand and crystallize my own understanding – but it did. Part of that clarity came from the consistent emphasis on seeing things from the audience’s point of view and communicating value in ways that matter to them.

The process is efficient, the story is persuasive, and the visual support is highly professional. We will use the resulting presentation extensively. I recommend Cruxio to others who, like me, need to communicate strategically important ideas to others.

We retained Cruxio primarily to help us professionalize our communication with key relations. Their in depth knowledge of how visual communication translates into audience involvement led to a much clearer graphical presentation. But Cruxio’s thorough process in developing and refining the story, message and context did more than that, and ended up providing us with a much better understanding of our technology’s differentiating factors and capabilities.

While l have created many presentations for VCs and corporates prior to engaging Cruxio, I gained a whole new perspective and skillset in working with the Cruxio team. Cruxio guides you to a clear and concise presentation through their process. First, Cruxio’s unique process helps you to gain clarity of the underlying strategy and message. Cruxio then blends that message into some very creative slide work that enhances your connection with your audience.

I highly recommend Cruxio and the value added service they provide.

Our company's scientific story is complicated. Cruxio's approach simplified it dramatically, enabling prospective investors to understand and buy into the value we are creating.

I found the process enlightening and comprehensive. I was impressed by the results of our work together, and by the depth of knowledge that supported both the communication development and the presentation delivery coaching.

Most importantly, I see the difference when we first communicate our scientific story to others: we spend less time unraveling complexity, and more time on things that really matter.

Working with Cruxio drove us to create freshness and clarity into our message about our organization and what we have to offer. The disciplined process challenged us as Sales and Marketing leaders to develop a cohesive, compelling, proof-point story. It also highlighted gaps that require strategic focus.

Working with the Cruxio team dramatically changed the way I thought about story development. I had seldom seen either myself or peers really building the concept of the presentation message before starting to build slides. The Cruxio process was instrumental for learning to evaluate my audience of potential investors, formulate and build persuasive stories tailored to their most crucial wins.

While the final presentation led to a successful funding raise (which itself was a major win for my company), the tools and techniques gained in building the pitch will pay dividends for many years to come.
