We believe everyone deserves a fair chance to bring their ideas to life.

Why did we start on this journey?

Prezent was born out of a simple belief, “Everyone deserves a fair chance to bring their ideas to life.”

When I was young, I developed a stutter and speech impediment. People made fun of me. I felt insecure and I avoided leadership opportunities. Over the course of growing up, I was fortunate to find mentors and techniques that helped me overcome that challenge and grow into a senior executive in corporate America. 

As I grew up, I realized that I was not alone. Many people struggle with business communication. One may struggle to empathize with their audience or structure their thoughts—or they may stumble because they are not speaking their primary language. Ideas don’t get accepted, decision-making slows and companies lose the competitive edge.

As I spent time in Corporate America, I learned the problem was not limited to the individuals in an enterprise but to several functions and stakeholders. Organizations struggle with standardization & consistency. Leaders don’t have a scalable model for communication training. Brand teams are susceptible to fines and copyright risk. Agencies and consultancies can be slow and expensive.

It became clear to me that for millions of individuals and thousands of enterprises: communication success = career success = company success. I also realized that most tools help with creating slides. More slides was not the answer; we need more effective and efficient business communication.

I made it my mission to understand what makes great communication great. And build an intelligent communication success platform that democratizes great business communication. A platform that understands the multidisciplinary nature of business communication. A platform that supercharges communication effectiveness, reduces time on presentations and transforms how companies make decisions. Making everyone a communication superhero.

In April 2020, I quit my senior executive role at Cisco, invested $1M of my own money and enrolled some of the smartest people I knew under a common mission—democratize great business communication. Prezent was born.
