Corporate Startup Manager at DHL
Juan supported a 2 days intensive pitch training where 16 intrapreneurship teams of the DPDHL group pitched for a slot in a 4 months incubation program DHL Start-up Lab. His strong motivation to help the teams, his profound knowledge in training and state of the art pitches and his urge to look for the “Why” behind each idea contributed strongly to the success of the training. Having 3 out 4 teams proceed to the intrapreneurship program speak volumes of his abilities.
Communication skills improve your life, at work and at home. Here's how to get started:
Juan Guerra, storytelling Consultant
I couldn't talk in public. I was so scared of it that I rather fall dead before stepping on a stage but, back in 2011 something happened that changed everything for me. I delivered a presentation that went so horribly bad that I promised myself never to go through experience ever again in my life!
On that moment back in 2011, I understood that as long as I run away from mastering my communication skills, I would continue to give away my chances to succeed to those around me. I decided to master public speaking.
Little that I knew, I would become passionate about it as my skills improved, allowing me to travel the world, start businesses from the different opportunities that opened up and end up make a living out of it.

Juan helped me to prepare my talk and to connect with my audience on a deeper level with lean and authentic storytelling. Through his tips, I understood that my story is not about me, but about the audience finding themselves in it. After my talk, several people came to me and told me that they were touched by it, which was really heart-warming for me, giving me the confidence that my talk was structured in a good way.

Juan helped us in a very professional way by showing us how to pitch our idea, how to structure our presentation, how to influence the audience and get their attention.

For my last Demo Day, I knew I needed help to deliver my pitch in only 3 minutes. To make a story that everyone could understand. Sometimes you really need an external person with a fresh point of view of your own story. Juan did that and much more.
