 The Confident Start-Up: How To Command The Room To Choose Your Innovative Ideas
You have a great idea. You have an amazing team of experts in their fields to make it real. Now it's time to tell people about it, get them inspired and to attract the funding and support that will make your idea the next hottest innovation. 
In my work with start-up entrepreneurs and companies like SalesForce, Fjord and EchoUser, I've seen amazingly smart, tech-savvy people bore and alienate a room with their presentations. 
It ultimately comes down to, does your audience care about your idea? And that takes a confident, charismatic speaker who not only talks about their idea but also about shares their passion, purpose and story. 
It's important to remember that 93% of communication is non-verbal-- i.e. other than the words that describe your great idea. Do you know how to harness your communication to inspire your audience?
Join me to take the first step towards being a more confident, charismatic and inspiring start-up entrepreneur speaker.
