“We contracted with Articulate Persuasions to work with some of our companies, on a relatively “light touch” basis:  no more than one meeting per week.  The goal was to clarify the funding narrative and re-cut the pitch deck to reflect that new clarity.  The results were nothing short of transformative.  The AP clients all significantly improved their story and the .ppt behind itBased on these results, we plan to re-retain Monique Maley/Articulate Persuasion.”
