What can an opera singer teach an entrepreneur?
How to deliver a killer pitch!
For entrepreneurs, being able to deliver your business pitch on demand is the difference between life and death for your ideas. Pressure to perform. Nerves. These often prevent entrepreneurs from delivering their message in a way that emotionally connects with their investors.
Like any audience, investors crave authenticity and confidence. Their ability to focus on your story depends on your ability to understand and then captivate them as your audience. This workshop helps you to find your own voice to engage your audience, whether it’s one-on-one in an elevator or in front of thousands on the world’s largest stage.
This workshop will teach you the key concepts and tools of high pressure stage performances enabling you to successfully – and consistently! – deliver your message, both live and recorded. Topics include: voice functionality and use; body posture and purposeful movement; and stage presence. We will also cover the real world challenges of how to deal with stage fright, how to connect to and manage your audience, how to prepare, and how to stay “fresh” when you’re pitching the same message again and again. The workshop has you immediately use the tools and techniques you acquire by pitching your fellow participants.
