Be the Difference. Create your Change.

We're taught we can only make small improvements. We can only look to the past and do a little bit better. Not true. This method unlocks that potential. 


WE give you the tools and skills to make lasting change happen. You'll learn how to see potential and articulate it clearly. And tell the stories that people not only respond to, but leave them reliably in action. 

I feel like I can stand in front of anybody and tell them my story in a very powerful way that will get them to buy without them feeling like they’re being sold to.
— Karolina M. | Fashion Brand CEO

Video Review, Modeling, Speed POV and Pitch Idol are only the beginning of what makes the DeltaV Method the new standard for presenting, pitching and conversion skills training. 

Workshops have limited participants and at least one instructor per workshop. This allows time for each participant to present several times per day. The participants are given a personal story at the beginning of each session. During the storytelling process the participants discover how to become better storytellers and how to present an emotionally congruent story aligning with their idea, project or pitch. After the story, an instructor presents a short re-telling of the story demonstrating how to create the space, slide in and out of dialogue, eliminate narrative and connect the audience to the story. Participants are then asked to do the same.



Every participant is required to watch their own presentation on video and critique themselves. Most people have never seen themselves and how they truly look to an audience. We have found that video review, although difficult for many, is THE catalyst to break old, bad habits and form new ones.


We model and remodel every skill in the workshops until the participant has it because it works. There are no secrets. We are here to practice, practice, practice, so you can build new and improved skills that are ingrained within you. Instructors provide constant feedback and techniques until you get it.


Speed POV

Each participant assumes different roles and perspectives to deliver their pitch: "naysayer", optimist, analyst, and others to open up not just intellectually understanding, but really seeing the idea from different points of view. We often hear that words don’t matter as much as how we present them. We actually show you how to make this theory your new reality during speed POV so you can see and respond to any viewpoint, counterpoint or naysayer in the room. 


During pitch idol your performance is critiqued by you, your fellow participants and the instructor with a level of honesty that the less seasoned, more sensitive participants find uncomfortable, hurtful and even painful. Those of us who know what it feels like to be rejected by a clients, sales prospect or investor appreciate the hard truth, because we know it's the road to improvement, winning and maybe, GREATNESS.



It definitely puts you in an uncomfortable situation. You get to learn a lot about yourself and how you react. I previously thought I was really good with speaking in front of people.

  2. Is there an idea you want to realize that you haven't known how to start?
  3. Are you ready to experience potential discomfort amongst a supportive community standing for your potential?

Hear from past participants...

The components of the structure and the frame of how they broke down the system demystified it for me. I now have the steps.
— America P. | Insurance Executive
I feel much more effective in pitching my project to the world because I took this course. It really helped me to let go of different insecurities I might have in doing that.
— Geoff E. | Entertainment Executive
I’ve had videos go viral and I didn’t understand why. And I’ve had information resonate with people, but I wasn’t exactly sure why. By getting the framework that Sterling and Dan have to offer and putting that into place, actually seeing how I can fit my ideas into this linear progression of thoughts, it really opened up a communication style for me I was completely unaware could exist.
— Veronica F. | Youtube Influencer

Some people have natural talents. The rest of us have to work hard.

Hosting the class at your business or conference...

The masterclass is available around Keynotes and upon request for businesses, universities and other interested groups. 

I can’t believe how much I’ve learned. Being in the industry for as long as I have, it was refreshing to see a different way of presenting your information so it’s impactful in a really short space of time.
— Terry H. | Training Executive
Rates of innovation among U.S. businesses stay steady.

Businesses Sterling has already worked with...


The MasterClass works with groups of all sizes. Once we have a chance to learn a bit about your business we can suggest a few ways to make the most impact. 


How much is a lack of great methods costing you? How many clients should you have won, how much investment should you have raised, or should have had a better result? How many of us learned presentation and structuring skills in school? We understand because we have been there. The course costs less than one business school course and we guarantee you will learn more. How many of us have read stories about exponential business growth or sales leaders taking off, but not explain in easy steps how to get there? We have too. In fact, that is why we started the Innovation MasterClass. You will leave our training with a new set of skills that transform the difference you're able to make in the world. Promise.


On a case by case basis we have some scholarship opportunities available through our great clients and partners.
