Point(less) Pitches and Presentations 

If you’ve ever been a victim of “Death by PowerPoint” or worse, the perpetrator of such a crime, then you know its destructive impact! However, used effectively and creatively, PowerPoint can be a very powerful communication tool.  We’re living in a time when soundbites, elevator pitches, and 18-minute presentations are de rigueur.  Get on board or get left!  So, knowing how to communicate concisely, clearly, and compellingly can make a huge difference in your success. 


This workshop will help improve and enhance your presentation skills.  Regardless of your audience – venture capitalists, bankers, clients, vendors, stakeholders – your ability to communicate your ideas, products, or services is extremely important.

In this workshop you can expect the following:

-        Presentation tips for communicating clearly, concisely, and compellingly


-        How to use Power Point for more effective and efficient presentations


-        Information about other presentation tools and methods


-        How to create a business pitch


-        Pitch practice and evaluation!  Completion of pre-workshop questionnaire required.


It will be interactive.  It is meant to be educational, engaging, and enlightening in a judgment-free zone!
