It doesn't matter if you have the best idea in the world, if you can't get people to support it, you are not going to get very far.
And while tricks and quick tactics may work short term, in the end, it's only by mastering your communication skills and developing meaningful relationships without your audience that you will succeed.
That's why, whether you are building your career or your business, I believe that mastering your communication skills sets you on the path to success. They don't guarantee it, but failing to master them will definitely hold you back from achieving your vision.
And so everything I do, is designed to help you master your communication skills in an engaging, relevant, and easy way.
My origin story
With about 10 years on the stage, delivering events and workshops in almost 15 countries, and having spoken in front of more than 7000 people, one thing is for sure, I love it!
But, it didn't start this way.
Actually, I couldn't even speak in front of others...
Back in 2011, I had to deliver a 5 minute presentation that completely changed my life and not because it went great.
It went horribly wrong, I almost passed out right there in front of the 10 people that were in the room. Panic took over and my mind went blank.
And as I walked out from that room, I realized that I was in trouble.
Because if I was to achieve my vision of becoming an entrepreneur, I was going to need to master my presentation skills.
So I made a promise, a promise to never go through that situation ever again in my life.
And instead, I would work on my skills until they improved.
It was a very painful process... until one day it happened
What makes me different
As I experimented on the stage, the things that worked became more apparent. As I learned, research and taught others, the better my skills got.
But, I wanted to develop a method that would allow me or anybody who uses it to achieve great results with their message.
That's where The SEP System comes in.

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.
