We can train your team to be better communicators, help you devise a schedule for your multi-day conference, or simply make your already-conceived event look, taste, and feel fantastic.  Our hospitality and excellence shine in the corporate space.

  • Deck Generation

    The age of bullet-listed PowerPoint presentations is over—
and we’ll help usher you into the new era. Using your outlines or existing slide presentations as a springboard, we generate custom presentations that are fresh, modern, and engaging. By breathing story into every aspect of your visual presentation, we can even help invigorate straightforward facts and figures. We’re fluent in PowerPoint, Keynote, and Prezi and can design or re-design any slide deck you give us, or work with you 
to create new ones.
  • Presenter Training and Coaching

    Often, those who are in demand for speaking engagements are too busy to work on the very speaking skills they depend on most. We sidestep this Catch-22 with two different options for your team:
    • Two-day training workshops, in which we’ll teach your team to consider the TRUTH of what they’re saying, the power of their own TESTIMONY as they speak, and the ability to TRANSFER their passion and knowledge to their audience. We also cover the structure of modern storytelling, how to avoid presentation pitfalls, and the primacy of inspiring people to change. Our workshops are interactive and your team will have the opportunity to present with live feedback.
    • On-site coaching, for presenters who want immediate feedback and help for their “final ten percent.” We conduct day-of or day-prior run-throughs with your presenters and give some feedback (but not too much; we’re careful to not overload our clients with too much feedback, as speaking can be overwhelming in itself. Instead, we pinpoint the top 2-3 areas for more impactful improvement and help our clients grow with each presentation). Audience feedback has shown that our on-site coaching produces more engagement, higher levels of presenter confidence, and better fluency with technology.
  • Presentation Production

    Our communications team can help turn any idea or goal into a captivating presentation. We start with an interview to understand your core message and auxiliary points, then work with you to create an effective outline, a full speech in paragraph form, and any media support (including slide support, video, original music, or audience participation tools) to create a complete presentation package.

“Viva Bella is the premier event planning company to work with. They know how to take your ideas and bring them to life, as they work their creative magic and remain ever mindful of the details. As a client, I appreciate their ability to listen to our needs, while providing us with options to “dream big.” It’s been a true pleasure working with Viva Bella. We are thankful for their genius ideas, passion for events, and ability to understand your clients’ needs.”

“Your professional excellence was once again showcased throughout the preparations for and execution of this event—now the largest global P&G event we run. I can’t imagine a better team to work with.  Not only are you the best in your industry, you also do it with great style and a smile—no matter how high the stress is. Our success is your success!”

“Viva Bella Events is in a league of its own. All of the events they produce are our highest rated events. They are great at delivering a message in a creative, innovative way unlike you’ve ever experienced before their involvement. They are not tied to any one vendor, equipment, decor, etc., which we find an asset. Their goal is to create the most amazing event…not to sell any of their in-house assets like so many other vendors. And because of this, we always have a unique, custom-designed, innovative experience that’s on budget. P&G is one of the toughest critics. And Viva Bella Events has over-delivered.”

"Huge learning on the formulation of how to give better presentation and practical tips and tricks to identifying personal traps with the feedback given to the presentation we made."

“Viva Bella provided creative inspiration and execution for an annual recognition event we host for our sales team. Dora and her team completely transformed the typical conference room set up classroom style during the day for a classy event by dinner. From lighting to sound to a customized video montage set to a live drum band performance, all aspects of the event blew away the 110 attendees. In fact, the quality of the event improved so substantially with Viva Bella’s involvement, there is internally at our firm a new standard for how recognition will be done. Overall, Dora and team are great planners for anyone organizing a special event!”
