Storytelling Workshop: Why Pitches Fall Apart & 5 Tips To Make Sure Yours Doesn’t
Led by storytelling expert, Tim Shisler, who works with a number of accelerator programs including Techstars Boulder, Galvanize, Travelport Labs and Catalyze CU.
Tim's professional speaking experience includes TEDxBoulder, Ignite Boulder, Society of American Travel Writers Global Convention and TBEX workshops.
WHAT WE LEARNED
Great pitches, the ones that lead to action, are constructed in a way that brings together the human need to ‘fight or flight’, with an actionable solution.
We dove into the science of storytelling and why the hero's journey is more than just a Hollywood structure:
- A storytelling framework to understand why stories work and how to improve yours
- Techniques on how to quickly connect and form a trusting relationship with audiences
- Actionable feedback on how to improve your delivery and room command
