Delivery is Key!
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.  Building on the concepts of our February workshop "Mastering the Me Talk" which focused on crafting your personal pitch, this workshop will teach you the key concepts and tools of high pressure stage performances to deliver your message. 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.
