About This Workshop

What do Chris Rock, Louis CK & Tina Fey have in common? They all achieved remarkable success on stage because of their ability to command a room.

93% of what you communicate comes from your presence, body language and vocal tone; only 7% comes from what you actually say. It’s time to stop obsessing over decks and start obsessing over your presentation.

Like a great comedy performance, a great presentation is all about delivery. Learn how to better utilize your body and voice to pitch in an engaging, entertaining and unforgettable way using proven techniques from your favorite comedians. 

 

Takeaways From The Stage

  • Actionable strategies on how to improve your delivery and room command to become a more engaging presenter
  • Tips on how to utilize your voice to build tension, punctuate critical points and truly be heard
  • How to move with purpose during a pitch
  • The importance of breaking the “4th Wall” to increase audience engagement 
  • Techniques to manage pre-pitch stage fright

What Past Attendees Are Saying About Pitch Lab:

“Pitch Lab was so awesome! Not sure if I learned or laughed more. We all know a great presenter when we see one, but I never analyzed what makes them great. While what you say is important, it's all of the other details of presenting that play a crucial role in turning a good speaker into a truly captivating presenter.”
– Ashley Brafford, Moore Communications Group

 

“Pitch Lab isn't just addressing a public speaking problem; it's about empowering people to face one of humanity's greatest fears in a comfortable, safe and fun environment! As someone who enjoys speaking, I couldn't agree more with the use of humor as an ally for communication.”
– David Guillen, LifeDot  

 

"The whole Pitch Lab concept allows you to not worry about the pitch topic and focus on getting better as a presenter. The insights from the comedian, improv expert and public speaking expert were very useful, and I had a lot of fun.”
– Patrick Murphy, Pandora
