Deliver your Pitch with the Ultimate Confidence! - (2 Evening Class)
Tuesday, May 29, 05:30 PM - Thursday, May 31, 07:30 PM
NOTE: This is a two day class – 5/29 AND 5/31! 5:30 – 7:30 PM (4 hours TOTAL!)
What if you were in control and not nervous when delivering your elevator pitch? What if you were you prepped for your funding pitch but were able to go with the flow when you got interrupted two sentences in?
?This interactive class will use elements of improvisation to help you to better think on your feet. And because it will take place over the course of two evenings you will have the chance to learn, go away and rehearse and come back and learn some more. This will provide ample opportunities to practice and get feedback from others in the class, so that the word "extemporaneous" will in your mind mean "easy".
