1. Create Theatre
Never underseatimate the power of putting on a good show. Everyone plays a role, every prop matters.
2. Be Passionate
If you have to fake it, don’t bother. Winners play with their heads as well as their hearts in the game.
3. Start A Riot
Pitches are one of the few opportunities to envision things as you want them to be vs. the way they are. Don’t hold back, there will be plenty of opportunities to deal with restraints later.
4. Do What It Takes
When everyone is giving it their all, nothing should be beneath you, not even doing the dishes.
Suspend your disbelief, and immerse yourself in the moment. If you believe, then they will believe. You’re not just selling a service, you’re selling a promise.
