Description

Speakers: Henry DeVries

Presentation Topic: Persuade Investors with Story!

Synopsis: Recent studies reveal humans are hardwired for stories, including investors. A great "distress to success" customer story can be the difference between a funding thumbs up or down. In this interactive session, bestselling author Henry DeVries shares a simple six-step storytelling formula, and the six best opportunities to persuade with a narrative.

About the speaker: Henry DeVries, CEO (Chief Encouragement Officer) of Indie Books International in Oceanside, CA, is the author of nine books including "Persuade with a Story!" and "How to Close a Deal Like Warren Buffett." DeVries writes a monthly column for Forbes.com and is a practice leader and client relations/Nextworks Strategy leader for the Executive Next Practices Institute.


The Lunch & Learn event is an opportunity for Experts-in-Residence (EiRs) to present informal talks and Q&As with startup teams working at the Cove. The talks will cover such diverse topics as branding, marketing, pitching mistakes to avoid, investor relations, and prototyping.

Check-in 11:30 am Open to UCI students, staff & faculty, alumni, startups, spinoffs & Cove EiRs.
