THE PITCH DOCTOR

What: Present Yourself
When: 5th of November // from 11 - 6 pm
Public Speaking and Presenting
A (future) professional must be able to confidently present his or herself. A presentation succeeds because of content and the way you communicate. In this workshop we will look at your choice of words, your posture and movement, your appearance, and the use of your voice.
It’s not about the right way, but about your way of presenting. We start with your skills and teach you how to deploy them. To achieve this we work with exercises that are derived from theatre. This way you get a clear picture of how you come across and what suits you.
In the first Part of the Workshop you will focus on the ability to grab audience attention and Storytelling skills. In the Second we will look at how to create a Pitch. Each contender will get feedback on their individual Pitch presentation. When it comes to working with empathy, charisma and expression, we apply theatrical methods. The theatrical exercises are taught in groups, with a focus on the individual.
