Steve Jobs. Bill Clinton. Martin Luther King. Mahatma Gandhi. What did they have in common? They all got Very Big Things done. And they did it by being compelling speakers.
Whether you’re raising a new fund, asking for a salary raise, presenting in front of a big client, getting a seed round going, defending a PhD, or asking someone on a date, there will be turning points in your life when your fate hinges upon the quality of the pitch you make. Do you know what to do to make that pitch great every time? Or are you just going to leave those crucial turning points to chance? In this live talk/workshop, we will teach you some of the main principles behind being a Compelling Person so those presentations go better and better every time you make them.
To demonstrate the concepts live, during the talk we will be coaching 3 volunteers from the audience on their presentation skills. If you would like to be coached, have ready a 1min presentation on a topic of your choice. Whether you’re an entrepreneur, VC, executive, mid-career professional or recent grad, we are here to help you acquire the skills to put your career on a higher trajectory.
