In middle school, Sekou was voted “Best Listener.” Allow him to defend his title as you download your insight to him. Just as important as the decks, slides, links, articles, and videos you send him, are the conversations in which he gets to hear the passion and hope in your voice as you tell your company’s story and talk candidly about your vision, challenges, and aspirations.
In this phase, Sekou searches his catalogue to select the poetic pieces that speak to your event or brand. He could, for example, use his “making waves” piece as the skeleton for your talk, and write your story into it. Or perhaps he creates a new theme around your topic then weaves in existing writing from “making waves” and other pieces to tell your story. At its root, Poetic Voice is art, so Sekou never knows exactly how the process will unfold until he is in it. But whether he crafts an entirely new speech or you want his same keynote you heard at another event, he will always infuse your presentation with inspirational speaking, business strategy, and performance art written especially for your audience.
However his muses go about crafting your talk, the result is always the same – you get a moving and memorable poetic presentation that feels completely personalized for your event/brand. You get to watch your strategy become art that enrolls your audience and accelerates your mission. What is the return on inspiration? Your message becomes an anthem – buzzing in the halls of your office; taped to the cubicles of your staff; shared through the laughter of your team; owned, celebrated and executed by the hearts and hands of your community.
