Present perfect(ly)

Elixir recently devised pre­sen­ta­tion and work­book mate­rials for Stand & Deliver, a con­sulting group that trains cor­po­rate leaders and their teams on high-performance com­mu­ni­ca­tions. Workshop direc­tors are expe­ri­enced exec­u­tive coaches with years of the­ater direc­tion and acting expe­ri­ence. To help their inter­na­tional clien­tele achieve greater levels of influ­ence through the spoken word, Stand & Deliver needed written mate­rials to rein­force work­shop con­tent, so that atten­dees could carry it with them for ref­er­ence and deployment.

“Elixir helped us trans­late com­plex teaching con­cepts into an ele­gant, easy-to-read book which has become a pri­mary tool for our clients. The team at Elixir was totally com­mitted to under­standing the reader’s expe­ri­ence — from the size, weight and color of the book, to the client’s intel­lec­tual and emo­tional journey through our learning and devel­op­ment program.

Everyone touts the impor­tance of “knowing the client,” but Elixir really did delve deeply to under­stand the thinking behind the ideas and the out­comes we sought. Elixir’s ‘ensemble approach’ cap­i­tal­izes on the intel­lec­tual and cre­ative col­lec­tive of their team.”
 – Peter Meyers, Founder, Stand & Deliver

A Toast to 2009

Warm hol­iday greet­ings from all of us at Elixir,

Just a quick note to wish you the best as the year (our 16th in busi­ness!) draws to a close. Our thanks to everyone who in 2008: pro­vided the ref­er­ence, signed the check, took the photo, styled the shot, found the loca­tion, edited the copy, drew the pic­ture, illus­trated the con­cept, wrote the code, vis­ited the studio, deter­mined the posi­tioning, sug­gested the paper, printed the brochure, proofed the color, drank the mar­garita, AND fed the inspiration.

The year included new projects with old friends at Sundance, Gump’s, Naturopathica, New Leaf Paper, The Golden Bear, Hlaska, TravelSmith, and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. And we met new friends through projects with the California Academy of Sciences, Golden Star Tea Company, Stand & Deliver, the Contemporary Jewish Museum, New York Life, and Sandia National Laboratories. Our col­lab­o­ra­tions with our clients, col­leagues, and friends mean the world to us.

As we head into the new year — and into chal­lenging eco­nomic times for everyone — please know that we remain at your ser­vice. Call us if you are looking for ways to do more with less — and still present your best self while keeping your spending in check.

Wishing you a pros­perous and inno­v­a­tive New Year!
