You have to sell it.
To sell it you need to carefully craft your message and deliver it effectively.
If only it was that easy, right?
Argh! I wish that were the case!
I’ve spent the last 15 years in broadcasting telling other people’s stories. I’ve even earned an Emmy for my storytelling prowess. And yet I even struggle with telling my own story for my own product.
That’s not unusual.
We all struggle with getting out of the way of our messaging to create the most impactful presentation.We’re just too close with it.
In comes Carmine Gallo. He’s so brilliant and so talented that I created a video series around him while at Forbes, a publication in which he continues to write for and share his incredible insights and advice.
Carmine is the communications coach for some of the world’s most admired brands such as Google, Microsoft, LinkedIn, and Intel. Carmine’s also the author of the bestsellers, The Presentation Secrets of Steve Jobs and Talk Like TED: 9 Public Speaking Secrets of the World’s Top Minds. He helps leaders craft, pitch, and deliver the story behind their product, service or company.
Carmine will be available to applicants for one-hour this Thursday, September 4, 2014 (Thanks our XTC Academy partner SuperSummit and its Founder/CEO Marco Montemagno) to reveal the techniques you need to craft and deliver the pitch of your life for the Extreme Tech Challenge.
If you’ve entered already, I’m sure you noticed the 2-minute video pitch requirement in the application on YouNoodle.
Carmine can help!
If you haven’t entered the Extreme Tech Challenge yet, now’s the time!
At least start the application and then when you have all of the tips from Carmine to craft your perfect video pitch, submit your entry.
You have until September 30, 2014 to complete the application and submit it.
Carmine promises to bring the techniques to life with specific examples from Steve Jobs, Dick Costolo (Twitter), Marc Benioff (Salesforce), Howard Schultz (Starbucks), Sir Richard Branson (An all-star judge you want to impress in the Extreme Tech Challenge), and many other entrepreneurs who have used the techniques to pitch themselves and their products.
Carmine guarantees that you will learn to deliver a pitch that informs, illuminates, and inspires.
