 David Rose, a pitch trainer.

Dear Skolkovo Participant Companies,

We invite you to a self-presentation training seminar, where you will find out how to present yourself correctly. The training will take place at the Skolkovo Technopark on November 16, 2012.


What is this training about?

We always have to tell people about ourselves. We do it for investors, potential employees, partners, customers, even for strangers when making presentations at conferences. What exactly do we tell? What goals do we set? How do people perceive our stories? This training will help you answer these questions.


The training program

  • Goals and context of self-presentation. Hunting for key employees and participation in conferences – what is in common and what is different?
  • Sell oneself as an expert. What is your area of ​​expertise, what are you good at? What are your strong points? How to tell this, and most importantly, how to prove it.
  • Basic personal story. People trust you when your words do not contradict at least other words you had said. People believe in integrity. How to arrange all the facts, so that you can tell about yourself in a single story?
  • Communication of principled approaches, beliefs and values. Business, based on values ​​is becoming more common around the world, especially in the new, high-tech industries. Now, people pay attention not only to what you do, but also to how you do it. How can you tell people what is essential for you in business, besides money, of course?  
  • Communication of your personal vision. Successful leaders know how to tell about their visions of the future in such a way that other people's eyes “light up”. This is an important part of self-presentation. How do they do it? This is a daunting task, especially considering the fact that you have to formulate this vision at least for yourself.

In this seminar, you will have the opportunity to work on your personal stories independently and in small groups, to make a self-presentation to a large group and get feedback.
