Pitching To Win: Turn Your Raw Idea Into A Polished Pitch says
We all have ideas for movies, books, and products. But, if you can't get someone to invest their time, talent, or hard-earned cash in your passion project, you may never see it come to life. And in today's noisy marketplace, the best (and most efficient) way to articulate your big idea is to turn it into a pitch. Beyond getting the attention of a potential partner (or investor), the process of honing your idea into a clear, straightforward pitch can also help you become a better public speaker, think faster on your feet, and learn to take rejection better.

Come prepared with your best raw material (movie ideas, book concepts, etc.) and be ready to workshop it in a safe environment. By the time this two-session workshop is complete, you'll be confident enough to deliver your pitch anytime, anywhere, and to anyone.
