The Pitch

Sometimes the ability to relate your good idea to others is more important than the innate quality of the idea itself. From its origin (perhaps) in the media industry (most notably film and journalism), the idea of "the pitch" - a concise description of a project presented by an author, artist, or journalist to an editor, supervisor or funder with the goal of landing an assignment - has spread in recent years to all areas of business and entrepreneurship. This module is a voice-/body-/hands-on workshop in the art of the pitch. We'll learn about the different contexts of pitching and how they affect what works and we'll learn how to develop, practice, and deliver a pitch as well as engage in the give and take that goes with them. If time and interest permit we'll also explore the creation of a video pitch in the style of Kickstarter videos.
