Before Your Event

Working with Kim Before your Event

Kim’s clients consistently remark on how thoroughly she understands the needs of the client and their outcomes for the audience and how well she is able to meet the brief to deliver outcomes in a very engaging way.

Her approach to developing a customised presentation for your event might include:

  • One or more conversations with the client to understand the theme of the event, where her session fits into this theme and the desired outcomes and emotional state for the audience at the end of her session
  • 1-3 * 15-30 minute interviews with key audience members or other stakeholders to develop a thorough understanding of their challenges and what they hope to gain from the session
  • A thorough review of the latest international, industry-specific research around the topic
  • A targeted LinkedIn survey conducted as close to the event as possible to gather real-time regional specific data and case studies to weave into the presentation

Kim is also available to pre-record video content to get the audience excited about the event and her presentation.

During Your Event

Kim will notify you as soon as she arrives in the destination city and at the event venue. She will also notify you as soon as possible about any flight delays or other unforeseen problems that may prohibit the presentation from taking place as agreed.

Kim’s presentation style is a mixture of storytelling, interactivity and stats/case studies and the audience always leaves with practical steps to take to help them achieve the outcome the client has in mind for the session.

Every few minutes the audience will be participating in polls, answering questions, participating in activities, having a discussion with those around them or reflecting on a facet of the session.

Each session is fast paced, entertaining and extremely practical.

Kim is also open to participating in onsite interviews, panel discussions or anything else that will help
