Jessica Yahfoufi: Presentation & Pitch Pro

photo (25)I started Smart Sauce Studios to help businesses inform and persuade through compelling presentations and marketing materials.

As a business development pro, I’ve designed and delivered sales presentations for over a decade. I specialize in audience-targeted slide decks and communications materials for high stakes events like new business pitches and investor meetings.

Prior to starting my solo venture, I sat in the “hot seat” as a sales rep, selling solar photovoltaic systems to residential and commercial customers. As a sales manager, I lead a team that helped increased company revenue 10x in one year. Before that, I worked with the executive team at Cohn & Wolfe, a global P.R. firm, helping pitch high profile clients including Autonomy, Archimedes Model, McKesson and Trilogy Homes. I also developed “prep materials” including strategic insights reports, industry briefs and media backgrounders so all team members were primed and razor sharp on pitch day. I have deep experience with start-ups, technology and clean tech / renewable energy.

A native New Yorker, I’ve lived in California for over a decade, mostly in the Bay Area. I have a B.S. in Cognitive Science with a focus on Human-Computer Interaction from U.C. San Diego. I’m a certified scrum product owner (CSPO) and I studied Spanish in Uruguay, Peru and Ecuador.

I provide the strategy and support my clients need to deliver knock-out presentations.

“In developing executive presentations and strategic pitches, Jessica has a unique ability to identify the key research issues and distill the commentary in a meaningful way; reducing both the time and expense associated with using traditional means and resources. As a result, her efforts and work product provide significant “value add” to our organization.”
