The Enrolling Pitch: How To Structure And Deliver A Pitch That Sells, with Julia Beauchamp
This is a presentation and Q&A with Julia Beauchamp, a public speaking coach I recently worked with for an important speaking gig. Her company, Speak to Inspire, specializes in working with entrepreneurs, experts, and leaders who have mastered their craft, but are looking for ways to more effectively communicate their message in a powerful way that moves people to action.
It was a fascinating experience working with a professional on my content structure, persuasion techniques, body language and presence, and of course, salesmanship. I have so many important things to say, but in the past have found that audiences get bored listening to my overly detailed and technical presentations. In September I was invited to speak at a prestigious conference to a foreign audience, and I knew I needed to reshape my message to connect with people’s hearts, instead of just their minds.
With Julia’s coaching, the talk was a tremendous success that has already led to several big opportunities.
