You have to pitch for money for your business or project.
You have to tell your boss you deserve a raise.
You have to explain why your project is going to be successful.
You have numbers to support your reasons for getting what you want and you understand that numbers matter. But it’s up to you to convince them – using data AND story – that you truly deserve this thing you want. In order to get to X (numbers), you’ve got to explain Y (why).
This talk speaks to the humans who believe numbers tell the story AND to the humans who believe stories tell the numbers. Looking at both sides to ensure everyone gets the information they need, you’ll be able to craft a presentation from the story the numbers tell in a succinct, simple, and manageable way. You’ll walk away with things you can change immediately in your current presentation or just what you needed to create the one that’s in your head. You’ve got to make your pitch by making an impact.
- Finding out how the numbers can tell a story
- Getting tips on how to tell the story without boring people
- Seeing why it matters that you make your audience feel something
- Seeing how the story AND the numbers make the impact
