You’ve got 7 seconds to make a first impression and 30 seconds (or less) to get
your ideas across when you’re doing a pitch, whether it’s for additional funding or
to land a spot on a TV show. Why should anyone listen to you?

It’s just not enough to have a product that you’re passionate about. YOU have to
represent that product.

Connect to your audience by:

  • saying something they’ve never heard before

  • telling a story

  • knowing who your audience is


From body language to physical appearance, you are being evaluated by a potential
employer or funder even before you speak. Something as small as a handshake can
heavily influence your chances.

Be confident and enjoy your interview.

See it as:

  • gathering important information about the interviewer

  • sharing experiences to see if it’s a proper fit for you

  • a conversation for exchanging ideas


No matter who you are or what you do, eventually you will have to do a live
presentation, which can be daunting, as well as career-threatening, if you’re not
prepared for it.

Most people would rather get hit by a bus than do a live presentation.
You’ll need to know:

  • your audience

  • your product

  • yourself
