Everyone’s got a story to tell or an idea to sell. But your audience has to understand and embrace it if you truly want to motivate them to act. Bring your pitch to the two and a half hour long Pimp Your Pitch workshop and we’ll help you rework it to better connect with your audience – whether you want to secure funding from a VC, sell your story to a filmmaker, convince a prospect to buy your product, or land a gig as a speaker at the next SXSW conference.
This VisualStorytelling workshop will teach you how to create audience empathy, address resistance, heighten emotional appeal, and strengthen your story structure to persuade your audience.
Key Takeaways:
- Big Idea: Refine your core message, and the stakes, with a unique point of view
- Move From – Move To: define the audience transformation
- Call to Action: clearly state what you want the audience to do
Because you only get one chance to make a great first impression.
- Your prerequisite is to come ready to help move audiences as you turn them into the hero of your presentation.
What to Bring:
- Come with a presentation or pitch in mind, bring notes and an outline.
