How to Pitch: Public Speaking Skills for the Terrified

March 2 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Register for this exciting “Interactive Workshop”, hosted by CUTEC. This workshop will be for a small group of people (max. 16) to make it as interactive as possible, so please register on time. The workshop will be run by Freddi Scheib from CUTEC (Chief Innovation Officer). She won last year’s CUE 5k Angel Investor Award for her 1-minute pitch and Founder.org launch event’s 5-minute pitch competition. During this workshop, the basics of public speaking will be discussed and the 8+ years of improvisation, sketch comedy, and film writing experience of a New York actress turned Genomics PhD student will be used to help fellow entrepreneurs feel more comfortable taking the spotlight for that all-important pitch. There will be group and individual exercises so be prepared to be on your feet.
