We have some great speakers lined up this week for Batch 6! Don’t miss out on getting great tips for your startup – check out the livestream schedule below:
Storytelling Class with Marie Perruchet
Stories have a unique power to persuade and motivate, because they appeal to our emotions and have the ability to shape beliefs and change minds. No decisions are made, no products sold, and no partnerships forged, are launched based on a slide show with dry numbers. In this hour talk, Marie teach you which narrative communication techniques work best for effective speaking, and how to incorporate these techniques into your upcoming Demo Day pitch.
We will go through interactive exercises to:
– know how to use your personal story to inspire other people
– develop a comfortable and effective style for pitching
– know how to incorporate body language that commands attention and respect
