L’Oreal – Fashion and Beauty

VP External Affairs and Strategic Philanthropy

I helped this VP with content and delivery for numerous speeches for the company Town Hall Meetings, where she would report on L’Oreal’s philanthropic work: work which regularly involved employees. We also worked on her speeches for benefits, and other L’Oreal sponsored philanthropic events.

Lead Scientist and Inventor

In a very intensive 28 hours, I helped this French scientist write and edit his presentation, coached him on delivery and assisted with staging for the product demonstration and fashion show he moderated.

A French native, he needed help “Americanizing” his speech and delivery. We improved his command of the room, his physical presence in moving about and interacting with other participants (models, etc.) and got him comfortable with the strange acoustics and set-up of the Guggenheim Museum.
