Pre-Event (and At-Event) Coaching for Conference Presenters

Fill your conference with presenters who deeply resonate with attendees and significantly elevate the experience, creating a win-win-win event.

Presenters win

Equipped to deliver valuable content.

Attendees win

Acquiring meaningful knowledge and takeaways.

Conference sponsors win.

Confident presenters will be brilliant and well-prepared.

Even with a strict selection process, a premium venue or virtual tech, high-quality presentations are not guaranteed.

The caliber of presentations impacts the success of your conference. It enhances audience engagement, elevates the event’s reputation, and attracts future registrations.
Imaging a conference where...
All your presenters deliver brilliant content regardless if the event is in-person, virtual, or hybrid.
You no longer cringe over exec keynotes stressing if they’ll be engaging, inspiring & memorable.
Your attendees rave how every session is meaningful and packed with applicable information.
You delegate presenter preparation to me, gaining you the freedom to focus on other vital tasks.
The review process is pain-free as the slides are visually appealing, well-structured, and in the right template.
Attendees applaud the brilliant presentations, and presenters are deeply grateful for the unprecedented pre- and at-event support.

What Coaching for Conferences Solutions Are Best For You?

Whether your conference has hundreds of presenters or only a few, I partner with you to teach your presenters how to go beyond presentations to resultations. They WILL engage your attendees, provide meaningful takeaways, and drive event satisfaction. My conference solutions scale to your needs, event size, and budget.

Pre-Conference Solutions

Exceptional conference content starts months before the actual event. My pre-conference solutions boost presenter engagement, depth of preparation, and presenter confidence. Through a combination of training webinars and virtual one-on-one coaching, your presenters will have the support, knowledge, and tools they need to design and deliver influential presentations. 

Training Webinars

Choose from webinars on design and delivery, audience engagement, panel discussions, tech talks, hybrid/virtual presenting, and more. Webinars range from 20 to 45 minutes and can be offered live, simulive, or on-demand.

Visual Design Elements

Ensure presentations are well-structured and visually appealing by providing your presenters with visual design support. From review and feedback to complete slide creation, I elevate the visual elements of your presenters’ presentations.

1-On-1 Coaching

Take presenter coaching and support to the next level by offering 1-on-1 coaching sessions. I personalize each session to the presenter's presenting style, experience, and content.

Hear what our incredible clients have to say!

“Patti Schutte is one of the best presentation coaches I’ve ever met. Over the years, she has helped me build compelling narratives for many engagements. We’ve worked together on internal and external corporate presentations and product launch messaging. She has helped me engage people while serving on industry panels. We’ve done webinars and training and most recently, she has helped me build my brand and messaging and corporate slide template as a business owner. Patti is top notch in her field and I highly recommend her services to everyone in need of content layout, presenting and speaking help. Oh wait, did I mention, she ROCKS!”

Kelly Eisenhardt
Co-Founder and Managing Director, BlueCircle Advisors

“When looking for expert professionals to present at our conference, we promote our partnership with Be Brilliant as the real reason you should send in a submission. Accepted speakers have the opportunity to work with Patti and her team from start to finish on their presentations and speaking style. Be Brilliant is as familiar with the jitters as with the highly-produced speeches of the gazillion-dollar earners. I have seen Patti work miracles at the highest levels – as well as transform less-experienced speakers.”

Ruth Morss,
Executive Communications, PTC

Laura Sloan,
CPA and Sr. Consultant, DSD Business Systems, Conference Speaker

“We knocked it out of the park!! Our audience was engaged, and many said it was one of the best presentations they had ever seen at the conference. We think our graphics-heavy presentation (thanks to Patti) kept the audience focused on our story and didn’t feel like what they would normally see back at work.

Kimberly Brean,
Engineering Product Support Directorate, Raytheon Missile Systems, Conference Speaker

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. I had never presented at a conference before, not to mention as a customer spotlight in front of thousands. I was nervous and worried about getting our company’s story across and not making a fool of myself. The presentation came together beautifully. The audience was so engaged! Thank you again.”

Robert Treiber II,
Co-Founder and President, Boston Engineering, Keynote Speaker

Kishore Tummala,

Patti’s coaching helped me have the skills to overcome my fears, move forward with creating my presentation quickly, and generate the slides I needed to be the best presenter I could be for my topics.”

Kristie Parker
Sr Project Manager, Sage Intacct, Conference Speaker
