Discover Our 5-Step Framework To Creating Presentations That Get Buy In, Without Being Salesy
If you’re feeling stuck and stressed out about your upcoming presentation, then this is perfect for you.
TLDR: This Masterclass is for you if you’re a:
Are your presentations stopping you from succeeding?
You’re preparing for an important moment in your career, business or sales cycle. You’ve got it all planned out and it plays out beautifully in your head, but during the actual moment:
1. You notice people yawning and audience members slouching in their chairs using their mobile phones
2. They hurry you to finish up and you never hear back from them again
As a result you…
Lose opportunities to others who just seem to 'talk' better
Appear less competent than you really are, forever losing confidence from your key stakeholders
Fail to achieve your own career and personal goals
If this sounds like you, I’d like to reassure you that it’s 100% normal and in fact, very common.
I know this, because…
I’ve been there.
When I started HighSpark at 19, despite trying out best to convince our clients. We wanted people to understand our value and trust us, but we just didn’t know what to say or how to say it.
As a result, we lost high-value deals to people that delivered the same or lesser quality of work simply because nobody understood how we were different or why they should hire us.
Most people struggle with their presentations and high-stakes conversations because of these same blind spots they just can’t see.
Here’s some of the most common mistakes we see in our work:
- Having multiple ideas in mind, but no idea how to make them flow clearly in a presentation.
- Using jargon or industry lingo to appear more prepared, but end up confusing audiences instead (95% of my clients USED to make these mistakes)
- Getting too caught up in research and data, and forgetting about tackling emotions to convince decision makers, leaving them bored and uninspired.
- Thinking: “My idea is amazing… so my audience would naturally love it” (You cannot deliver a winning presentation if you ignore your audience).
A few years later, I discovered a time-tested formula that would change everything.
Don’t let the simplicity fool you.
It’s a framework used by top performers (by that, I mean the C-suites, MDRTs and fastest climbers) in almost every field to win over others. Some of our clients have closed million-dollar deals leveraging this same formula.
Since cavemen times, our ancestors have been telling stories to stay alive. Today, we still respond to stories with action. It’s visceral, it’s in our blood and nature.
After we discovered this formula, we secured top Fortune 500 clients, grew our business by 7.5 times and recently won an award for our training programmes.
“The course by HighSpark has
truly transformed the way we approach communications!
My team began applying the techniques learnt almost immediately in everyday work — I think that’s the greatest result we could’ve asked for.”
After only doing private, arranged runs for corporations for a few years, we’ll finally be doing a public run of our highly-anticipated StorySelling Masterclass for the very first time.
In this training, students can expect to leave the room with a proven method to tell clear, powerful stories in any business situation to win over even the most skeptical audience members.
This one-day workshop will cover our complete 5P Storytelling Framework which has helped many of our clients
drive millions of dollars in value for their organisation.

Your Instructor : Kai Xin
I’m Koh Kai Xin, Co-founder and Lead Trainer at our award-winning high-stakes communications agency: HighSpark. For the past half a decade, I’ve worked closely with C-level executives to nail their high-stakes presentations. In 2017, I’ve got the honour to receive the “World’s Best Story Tellers 2017” citation endorsed by BBC World Storytelling Congress in Mumbai.
Subsequently, I begin sharing our in-house consulting “secret sauce” to thousands of executives from leading companies. They’ve since used stories to help their best ideas be seen, heard and understood. As a result, our clients have brought in more than $50M worth of value to their companies collectively.
Here’s a handful of organisations that I’ve got the privilege to work with.
“The challenge before engaging HighSpark was to make sense out of a business that we know by heart.
Translating this into a story that can be told. With HighSpark, we’ve been able to construct that story and have a flow that is coherent and engaging. I highly recommend the workshop. It benefits anybody who speaks in public about their business.“
I’m ready to beat my presentation bottlenecks.
