“Why is working with you different than other Executive Coaches, Tom?” my new client Anna asked.
“I call it the InstaMax Difference,” I began. It comes down to this:
- Instantly Get Better
- Maximize Your Life
“I get it. InstaMax,” Anna said.
As a trained film director and Executive Coach, I know how to say a few words and help a performer instantly improve a performance. I’m also the Spoken Word Strategist. As a trained screenwriter and branding strategist, I can hear when the words are Compelling.
Think about it. You’re getting evaluated all the time. Wouldn’t you like to have an edge?
My own mentor said, “It’s not just about taking action. It’s about taking *Proper* Action.” That’s why every Olympic athlete has a coach. I know: I’m the Executive Coach to a sports psychologist who has coached over 100 Olympians—including 5 Gold Medalists.
I’ll give you an example:
Recently, I stood in the wings, getting ready to give a speech. I looked at the audience and realized that 90% of them had already heard my energizing story about a speech I gave at Sun Microsystems.
Immediately, I jotted down new ideas for my new opening to the speech. A new opening that I had no time to rehearse.
I wrote down: “I’m in mid-air—going 60 miles an hour.”
Boom! I knew that would be a good, catchy start.
Here’s how my new opening went:
“I’m in mid-air—going 60 miles an hour. I’m holding onto a jet ski. The jetski has landed in the flatbed of a pickup truck—also going 60 miles an hour. Why am I doing this?! Years ago, I was a stuntman…”
How’s that for instant speech-writing?

Here are my two phrases:
- Take Command, Focus Your Brand
- You will achieve more than you believe.
About that last phrase: my clients say:
“Tom Marcoux coached me to get more done in 10 days than other coaches in 2 years.” – Brad Carlson, CEO, Mindstrong, LLC
“Using just one of Tom Marcoux’s methods, I got more done in 2 weeks than 6 months.” Jaclyn Freitas, M.A.
The best to you,
P.S. When a new client says, “I want to make big things happen, and I don’t know how to do that,” I say some reassuring things. I point out the fact that I broke into three industries with no prior contacts: the film industry, the speaking industry and academia.
I also note that I help people:
- Create credibility quickly
- Leverage that credibility
That’s how one hits the ground running!
