Tip #5

Emotional Connectivity: The entertainment industry and ad agencies get it. These industries understand and reflect the value of emotion and the creative story process more than any other business. Your pitch needs a storyline. Yes, story board it, rehearse it and deliver it with style. Forget winging or adlibbing.

crowdTip #2

Eye Contact: Kim Carnes’ ‘Bette Davis Eyes’ says it all. The great actress of the Golden Age of Film was known for portraying strong women. Her eyes conveyed such confidence, who could dare to challenge her? There is nothing as distracting as a person trying to pitch something with eyes shifting from the floor to the ceiling searching for who-knows-what.

Spread the eye connection with every potential ally in the room.
