The Low Down
We get it —not everyone is Don Draper. But a great presentation can make you feel like you are. Pitching and presenting are part of every job, whether you’re selling air filters or team spirit.

You don’t have to be a natural born presenter to present like one. Like any skill, it takes craft, help and time —say, 6 weeks? From associates to executives, everyone knows that presenting with authenticity and confidence makes a huge difference in your career. With this bootcamp, maybe one day, you’ll give Don a run for his money.

The Takeaway

“Go from explaining to enlightening. Find your voice and make a statement. Figure out exactly what to do with your hands since apparently you can’t just stick them in your pocket. In our Pitch and Presentation Bootcamp, we’ll address your biggest presentation concerns and provide you with access to a range of industry experts and beyond so you can make sure you shine as much as your ideas do.”
