Event Description

Join Career and Presentation Coach Nancy to learn some research-based tips and tools to harness your inner genius for your pitch

How can you become more compelling during your pitches to investors and other stakeholders when the virtual environment already creates a special set of challenges? These include experiencing an endless array of technological glitches, interacting with invisible participants, and dealing with each person being stuck in their own little flat box. It can be even more complicated to manage your energy and multitask while sharing your rich inner thoughts with the competitive world outside.

In this workshop, you will learn to communicate succinctly and bring your relevant ideas to life on the screen.

1. Perfect your pitch

How to succinctly craft (in three simple steps) an audience-focused branding statement that describes your startup

2. Manage your public persona

How to convey the value your company brings through your personal brand online (e.g., attending to your facial expressions, body language, voice)

3. Learn to improvise

How to speak and answer tough questions on the spot
