SPEAK WITH CONFIDENCE

SELL YOUR WORK WITHOUT BEING “SALESY”

KNOW HOW TO READ YOUR AUDIENCE

PACK A VERBAL TOOLKIT FOR ANY ROOM

We are constantly pitching. It doesn’t matter if you’re pitching TV execs on an animated series, or you’re just out for dinner when someone asks what you do. Opportunity is everywhere, and we are expected to see it and leap with confidence.

It can be a source of stress and worry, and in the worst case just the idea of “selling” keeps you away from opportunity.

That’s where Mal comes in.

She’s got perfect pitch.

She has the kind of chutzpah that is not only contagious, but teachable.

After working with Mallory, you will:

Generate and infect others with your enthusiasm

Take your jitters and tell them where to shove it

Speak with confidence about any project

How it works

  1. Written course content released weekly over 5 weeks.
  2. Homework, designed to help you take a project, any project, and develop a pitch.
  3. A formula to make that process work for all your projects.
  4. Four live Q&A sessions
  5. Live reviews of real pitch concepts from students.
  6. Opportunities to test drive your pitch during the live Q&A
    (yes, you may have the option to get “on stage” with us. It’s a safe space!)

Who should take this course?

This course is for you if you

  1. Ever talk to people about what you do, ever. Online, in email, via skywriting, anywhere
  2. Ever negotiate pricing for your work
  3. Ever deal with social anxiety for those all important live events or portfolio reviews
  4. Ever want to network effectively, meet people, and make friends

And certainly if you have a project you’re working on be it a crowdfunder or a newsletter, the live workshop* will boost to get to you the finish line.
