Boston – June 10, 2016 – Donna LaVoie, president and CEO of LaVoieHealthScience (LHS), an award winning integrated strategic communications agency focused on health and life science, delivered a workshop on how to create an essential company presentation in just 15 slides in front of a packed room at this week’s BIO International Conference in San Francisco. Donna also reviewed the basics of creating an elevator pitch.
“Communication is an art acquired only from years of learning and practice, and I was thrilled to be selected by BIO to lead this important workshop on a process that drives a company’s key messages to engage stakeholders and achieve company goals,” said Donna LaVoie. “Being a great scientist or a great business visionary is just not enough; you must also be a great communicator to succeed in business today.”
Last month LHS was issued a U.S. Service Mark for The LHS Fifteen-Slide Presentation™, which designates a clear outline for life science companies to explain their product category, market differentiator, leadership position, regulatory pathway and financial position. The presentation is designed for use across audiences, including prospective partners, employees, investors and others. The 15 slides ensure key information is covered in a logical, digestible presentation. Starting with this structured approach, LHS uses the methodology to optimize credibility, visibility and opportunity for its client companies.
LaVoieHealthScience has developed a thought leadership series of videos and whitepapers on public speaking covering The LHS 15-Slide Presentation™, Public Speaking Strategies for the CEO and Creating Your Elevator Pitch. More information on this series can be found here.
