DeFinis Communications

Look for the unique use of stories, testimonials, rhetorical questions, examples, facts, quotes and humor. Make a long list of the skills you think are most effective and then practice your newly consumed skills every day so that you too can use them the next time you speak.

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

No jury or judge will look favorably on a plaintiff or defendant whose testimony comes across as totally scripted. And his language and the content of his testimony were flip. Yes, in a coached era, that's become a best practice. Being coached has become the American Way.

Since I had consulted with Veno regarding his testimony, I took the opportunity to see him in action. Veno’s testimony was a success, and in this case at least, his success had very little to do with my consultation.
