About this class

Want a more compelling pitch for customers, investors or prospective employers?

Crafting a great pitch is more than showcasing your product, market opportunity or expertise. Great pitches, the ones that lead to action, are constructed in a way that brings together the human need to ‘fight or flight’, with an actionable solution.

In this Pitch Lab workshop, we’ll discuss common mistakes made when pitching and ways you can avoid them. We’ll also dive into the science of storytelling and why the hero's journey is more than just a Hollywood structure.

Led by storytelling expert, Tim Shisler, who works with a number of accelerator programs including Techstars Boulder, Galvanize, Travelport Labs and Catalyze CU. Tim's professional speaking experience includes TEDxBoulder, Ignite Boulder, Society of American Travel Writers Global Convention and TBEX workshops.

Takeaways

  • A storytelling framework to understand why stories work and how to improve yours through small changes
  • Techniques on how to quickly connect and form a trusting relationship with audiences
  • Actionable feedback on how to improve your delivery and room command
