About the Author

Mike Figliuolo is the founder and managing director of thoughtLEADERS, LLC, a professional services firm specializing in leadership development. He is the author of One Piece of Paper: The Simple Approach to Powerful, Personal Leadership and is a nationally recognized speaker and blogger. Before founding his own company, he was a consultant at McKinsey & Co., and an executive at Capital One and Scotts Miracle-Gro.


I've put several of my teams through Figliuolo's Structured Thought & Communications course because the process he teaches is a critical executive communication skill. Now he's put that process into a book that will be an excellent resource for my entire organization. The Elegant Pitch should be required reading for every executive out there.

The Elegant Pitch is the cure for death by PowerPoint and analysis paralysis. It shows you how to think through your message and build support for your idea before you do a single calculation in a spreadsheet. If you follow the process laid out in this book, you'll avoid countless hours of wasted analysis and build presentations that people actually understand and support.

The methods contained in Figliuolo's book The Elegant Pitch will save you and your team hours of waste. It successfully translates the skills taught by elite consulting firms into a straightforward approach with invaluable tools for improving anyone's communications and influence skills. No management team should operate without it.
