A Vivid Ideas session at UON Sydney

Vivid Ideas: Pitching Your Creative Idea

Thursday, 8 June 2017, 05:00 pm — Thursday, 8 June 2017, 07:00 pm



Pitching your Creative Idea

This Business Case workshop is part of the Vivid Ideas 2017 program and is offered as a ‘taster’ course open to all members of the public. Vivid Sydney is a unique annual event of light, music and ideas, featuring some of the world’s most important creative industry forums.

So you think you have a creative idea? Now to convince your team, sponsor, buyer, investor, or donor. The more time you have invested in your idea without sharing it, the more likely it is you’ve convinced yourself it’s great and the harder it is to convince others. Now imagine you have been asked to propose your idea on the way to a meeting: you have less than 3 minutes to present the idea and probably less to make an impact.

At the completion of this workshop you will:

Know what does and doesn’t work when it comes to persuading people.
Have practical tools and techniques to make you and your presentations more impactful.
Boost your confidence in how to influence and persuade to achieve a positive outcome.
