Create and Deliver Surprisingly Compelling Software Demonstrations 

“Do The Last Thing First” — the recipe for a Great Demo! 

This is an interactive workshop with Natasja Bax geared especially for you to present demos in the new normal, with remote audiences. Bring a copy of your demo and be prepared to present it — we’ll help you turn it into a surprisingly compelling demo!

This workshop will be virtual, online. We will deliver 2 sessions per day with each session running approx 150 minutes. The workshop will be spread over 3 days, starting on November 30.

'Peter Cohan's Great Demo method really works. It helped us win DEMOgod, and it has allowed us to explain our offering much more clearly to prospects.' Chaim Indig, CEO, Phreesia

The workshop is designed for teams. We therefore, strongly recommend registering with a colleague. We need a minimum of 8 participants to run the workshop.


Establish a framework, including skills and processes, to create and deliver improved software demonstrations to increase success in the sales and deployment of your offerings. 


  • Improve demonstration quality and effectiveness by implementing a standard process and tools for demonstrations. 
  • Establish and communicate clear objectives for each demo. 
  • Increase the probability of success for demo outcomes for real-life situations. 
  • Improve communication, preparation and follow-up between sales and presales. 
  • Reduce the cost of sales by using demos more judiciously. 
  • Increase the average deal size and/or sell additional products and services. 
  • Increase existing subscription expansion and renewals.


Participants will learn how to:

  1. Determine the right content for a demonstration based on the customer’s business needs and objectives.
  2. Organize the content in a novel, logical progression that maps to audience needs and depth of interest – and engage and prove your capabilities within the first six minutes of the demonstration.
  3. Prepare demonstrations using the new method.
  4. Present demonstrations with the highest probability of success in achieving the desired objectives.
  5. Manage a range of real-life situations and scenarios.

Participants complete the Workshop equipped with: 

  1. A newly constructed, highly compelling demonstration of your software, targeted specifically for a typical key scenario. 
  2. The ability to apply the method to develop equally targeted and compelling demonstrations for other scenarios, products, and situations. 

The Great Demo! methodology delivers targeted 'what's in it for me?' benefits right up front, followed by rapid, targeted proof, and then further, more detailed exploration in accord with the audience's level and depth of interest. This proven, highly successful method maps extremely well to the specific needs and constraints of audiences that can include senior management, middle management, end-users, and IT staff.
