Communicating your startup story and how to go about it

A session at Digital Shoreditch Festival 2012

  • Richard Garnett

Monday 28th May, 2012

2:30pm to 3:00pm (GMT)

Does the idea of presenting your vision terrify you? Do you have a great business idea but struggle to convince others? There is a commonly held belief that to communicate effectively you need the gift of charisma and ‘presence’. Richard Garnett from Present.me disagrees. He believes that presence is a skill that can be learnt, with the right coaching, in a relatively short period of time. Richard is a former RSC actor and so knows one or two things about keeping an audience engaged. He now coaches senior executives at blue chip companies, helping them present in a more effective and engaging way. In this workshop, Richard will explain the psychology behind why some presentations work and some don’t. In a very practical session filled with tips and tricks, he will cover everything from how to ‘click’ with an investor in only 30 seconds to how to create PowerPoint slides that resonate. Do you need help telling your startup story? Then this session is for you.

Questions answered :
Why is telling a story vital for startup success? How do you communicate effectively, offline and/or online? What are the secrets to a great presentation?
