Prepping Your Pitch
July 11, 2013
No matter how prepared I am, standing in front of an audience always makes me nervous. This evening, Todd Frye, spoke to the class on how to approach your pitch. Techniques when standing in front of an audience and basic information you should have in every pitch.
Todd stressed the importance of preparing actively: Have your mind work as a listener, assemble your talk as you prepare stand up, tape your session but be careful, familiarize yourself with the space, and prepare early.
The most valuable piece of this evening was when Todd asked certain individuals to stand up and present the "pitch". It was helpul to place myself in the mindset of the audience and the presenter. While I did not personally present my pitch, I learned a lot from watching others present.
