Pitching is an art form that can be learned. During my tenure as a senior level development executive, I’ve heard more than 3,000 pitches and bought hundreds of projects... so I know what it takes to grab a buyer’s attention and get him or her excited enough to give the green light. Selling your project in the room is one of the most rewarding experiences in your entertainment career. I’ll help you structure, develop, and practice a killer pitch that can help you make that fast sale.
Many creative professionals find pitching overwhelming or intimidating. But a successful pitch isn’t a hard sell, it’s an engaging conversation. I take the mystery out of the process and guide you, step by step, on how to develop and practice your pitch. Working together can take the fear out of the experience and help you feel confident every time you walk into a room to make a sale.
I’ll teach you how to:
Prepare a pitch to fit the buyer
Structure your pitch so it grabs buyers’ attention and keeps them captivated
Practice your pitch so it’s effective every time
Use a secret element to craft a successful pitch
In my work as an executive and program director for two prestigious Hollywood writers programs I’ve sat across the desk from thousands of professionals and helped determine their “fate.” I’ve seen people blow it because they weren’t prepared, and I’ve seen others hit it out of the park. I know what it takes to “give great meeting” and will teach you the skills you need to do it every time.
I teach you the unwritten rules of preparing for a successful meeting, how to overcome nervousness, and how to leave a meeting knowing you gave it your very best shot.
Meeting skills coaching can help you prepare for general meetings, executive meetings, producer meetings, interviews and--in television--the all-important “showrunner meeting.”
