Pitch Like Hollywood
What You Can Learn from the High-Stakes Film Industry
Inside tips on how to craft pitches that seal the deal--no matter what industry you work in--and banish presentation anxiety forever
From impromptu elevator pitches to full-board presentations, sales and marketing professionals face an "audience" daily―often with make-or-break consequences. As the person delivering the performance, you need to know you have a great script and are able to maintain composure throughout.
To help you perfect both pitch and performance, there are no better coaches than clinical psychologist Peter Desberg and writer/producer Jeffrey Davis. With experience and insights from both the film industry and the corporate world, they understand the pitch process.
In Pitch Like Hollywood, they show you how to up your game substantially --no matter what business you're in--by incorporating elements of a classic Hollywood pitch: driving emotion, piquing curiosity, and ultimately winning over decision makers with powerful persuasion and performance. They take you on an insider's tour of the entire process, from defining the fundamentals to designing effective presentation strategies to overcoming stage fright.
With chapters that include Persuasion Boot Camp, The Pitch Panic Cycle, and Creating the Pitch II (The Sequel), Pitch Like Hollywood provides a front-row seat in a master class on giving great performances for any audience, every time--at board meetings, sales calls, and whenever else you want to make a case to get the results you want.
