In a unique, professional development workshop, Leeds MBA students learned how to harness public speaking techniques used by their favorite comedians.
In collaboration with Dr. Peter McGraw, Pitch Lab helped incorporate communication, creativity, and charisma lessons into CU’s already stellar Marketing Management course.
“These skills are valuable for your pitch and in the real world – business schools tend to overlook these lessons,” explained Professor Peter McGraw, who considers these skills essential to the MBA student experience at Leeds.
"A presentation can have good content, but it can still be dry. I wanted to give students the opportunity to learn about the importance of engagement in their presentations.”
