Do you struggle with your pitch? Innovators often do. You have exotic talents: big ideas, huge ambition, new ways of seeing the world. But those very talents can make it difficult to communicate with other kinds of people — people like investors, collaborators or potential customers. In today's session, a communications strategist who started out as an English professor will teach you some simple, powerful linguistic techniques to talk about your ideas in ways that make deep human sense. In other words: we'll make your pitch into poetry.
